The show must go on – but not at the moment

Dear Friends of ETL,

We, like all other community institutions in Leipzig, have had to react to the current crisis. We are therefore announcing the postponement of the performances of Philoctetes on March 20th and 21st. We hope this is only a delay and not a cancellation. We shall work in collaboration with Neues Schauspiel Leipzig in an attempt to find new performance dates. We will naturally inform you if a solution can be found.

As we finance our productions through box office revenue from our performances as well as donations,  we would ask you to consider contributing the cost of your ticket or, perhaps, something more. You can find our donation information here. This will ensure that we can keep doing more shows. We do also contribute a part of our revenue to NSL but that won’t be near sufficient for their needs.

Now, more than ever, we need to do what is right not just for ourselves individually but also for each other. Let’s work together to emerge from this stronger and better than we were before. And, most of all, we wish everyone all the best in dealing with this situation.

Sincerely,

the membership, cast and crew of

English Theatre Leipzig

Directors Needed!

Thank you for your pitches! If you have any questions regarding pitches or the new season, please contact us here.

Do you have a script that you’re dying to see performed? Have you always wanted to direct an ETL production? Well, now’s your chance!

ETL is now accepting applications to direct our December and March shows next season. We kindly request that anyone interested in directing a production submit two potential titles. You need to fill out one of our application forms (available for download here) and return it to us along with a digital copy of your scripts. All submissions must be received before Midnight, March 29.

After we have had an opportunity to go through the applications, we will arrange individual interviews where you can pitch your shows personally. Following the pitches and adequate time to deliberate, the committee will notify those selected and then post the titles.
