18th Bavarian Festival of Youth Drama Clubs

From 18th to 21st July 2024 upwards of ten productions featuring 200 teenagers from youth drama clubs across Bavaria will grace the stages of the Staatstheater Nürnberg, Theater Pfütze, Theater Mummpitz and Gostner Hoftheater. The youngsters will be coming up with new ways to convey and narrate their themes and stories on stage. And their plays are as multifarious as the world we live in. Budding young reporters will be reviewing the productions with input from culture journalists from the Nürnberger Nachrichten and Nürnberger Zeitung.

With kind support from the Bavarian branch of the German Theatre and Orchestra Association

A new suburb is being laid down and names are needed for the new streets. Nuremberg municipality chooses the names of people who resisted the National Socialists. But who were the men and women who risked their lives so bravely? What stand did they take, and against what? And by what process are the new street names decided? Pupils from Paul Pfinzing School in Hersbruck will explain everything during their street tour.


Three one-acters on the subject of going mad
Premiere: 27.10.2023
“Tempo 100” seniors’ theatre troupe, Dir.: Tamara Kafka

Tamara Kafka has been successfully directing the “Tempo 100” seniors drama group for thirty years. Her 33rd production centres around three one-act plays: Alfred Sous’s “Broderich Composes Black Holes”, Anatole France’s “The Man who Married a Dumb Wife” and Luigi Pirandello’s “The License”. This season it seems that all good things come in threes – so the German ‘toi, toi, toi’ for good luck seems appropriate.
