There are limited facilities for cultural entertainment in Kuwait. However, there are several plans for growth in the future.


Kuwait Little Theatre has been operation since the late 1040's. Supported by the Kuwait Oil Company, it is an armature theatre society.

Stage in Kuwait is a community based theatre group, producing all types of theatrical performance across Kuwait.


Currently, there are no Opera Houses in Kuwait. There are plans to build one in the future.
