English Theatre Leipzig was founded in 2013 at Neues Schauspiel Leipzig. Bringing together a group of both amateur and professional actors and directors, it became an official non-profit association (e.V.) in 2016 and has since offered a platform for cultural and artistic exchange to the English speaking and learning community, involving international theatre enthusiasts from the most diverse backgrounds. Establishing connections between performers and audiences, language learners and natives, stage and communities is what we strongly believe in and passionately work towards.
We are dedicated to creating quality English-language theatre and every year we present three productions at our home theatre Neues Schauspiel Leipzig. We have produced a variety of plays, spanning from classical repertoire to the work of contemporary playwrights – and we are always thrilled to give original scripts a stage!
Currently, we are developing further community outreach programs in partnership with local institutions, looking to engage the community in social and environmental issues through creative expression and theatre.
