SANA'A, April 8 – The Ministry of Culture honored 60 Yemeni theater pioneers on Thursday, April 6. Minister of Culture Khalid Al-Rowaishan said those honored were the creative individuals who founded Yemen's theater movement for generations.

He continued by saying that honoring them is a repayment for what they presented to their country during critical situations, defending the revolution in times of embers and smoke.

Al-Rowaishan added that these stars were on the battlefront line of those who resisted the revolution, unity and the republic's enemies. He pointed out that such stars are pioneers of light and dawn.
