Theatre in Shanghai

EWT is passionate about supporting the arts community in Shanghai. Below you’ll find events around Shanghai where you can get your theatre and performing arts fix in foreign languages, from productions by the Shanghai expat theatre and arts community, to local Chinese productions, to visiting theater groups from abroad. Performances are in English unless otherwise noted.

Shanghai Cultural Information is also an excellent resource for local cultural events (concerts, dance, drama, etc) especially if you’re interested in performances in Mandarin Chinese.
