Summary/Abstract: The research outlines some recent trends and opportunities for education related to theatre art in schools and universities in Bulgaria in the context of not so much specialized academic education in theatre art as in the general educational aspects of studying and mastering certain skills through theatrical art. Special attention is paid to the relationship between theatre and education, with an emphasis on the concept of “theatre in education” as an innovative, modern way of using theatrical art for learning purposes in schools and universities. Opportunities are given for activities in schools and workshops to adequately familiarize students with the history and basic principles of creativity in arts, in particular in the theatre, as well as to develop certain skills, creative thinking, attitude towards art, building of new audiences and value systems. It is noted that in our higher education institutions efforts are being made for a more comprehensive training and upgrading of the students’ knowledge, related to the enhancement of their general culture, communication skills, teamwork, mastering the new technologies in order to increase creativity and competitiveness. It is emphasized that today education in schools, universities and academies of arts is inseparable from the development of new technologies. An important conclusion is that there is a need to develop a special arts education strategy and, in particular, a “theatre in education” program at national level as an opportunity to break out of the recent crisis in education.
