Patravadi Theatre in Bangkok

Patravadi Theatre

Founded by actress Miss Patravadi Mejudhon, Bangkok's first open-air theatre is located on the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya River, directly opposite the Grand Palace and next to Wat Rakang - an ideal setting for plays set in the Ratanakosin era. Miss Patravadi is dedicated to keeping the art of Thai theatre alive Patravadi Theatre holds regular demonstrations and lectures on the subject. It also provides training and workshops for local university students studying performance arts. Although 'Khon' and Thai folk dances are a central theme at the theatre, it also caters for modern tastes with foreign directors and choreographers often leading contemporary productions. The theatre houses great gardens and a restaurant. The theatres schedule of events also includes Yoga, ballet classes, and workshops on topics such as voice training. For this part of this world, this is a very innovative theatre environment, and of course a visit here will be entirely dependent on your level of interest in theatre and what productions are playing. Most shows are Thai language.

Details: Performances take place 19:30 every Friday and Saturday and admission is free. Plays based on Buddhist teaching take place on Sundays at 14:00.

How to get there: Probably the fastest way to get to there is by Express Boat to Maharat pier (near the Grand Palace) and then a ferry. If you want to go by taxi a fare will cost 80-90 Baht and there may be additional expressway costs depending on the route.
