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.

We are dedicated to creating quality theatre in English for the English speaking and learning community and for all the theatre enthusiasts in Leipzig. Currently, we present three productions every year at our home theatre Neues Schauspiel Leipzig and we are looking forward to developing other community outreach programs. Leipzig, and indeed all of Saxony, is becoming more and more intercultural, and with so many speakers of English, it seemed a great opportunity to offer an alternative to an OV film once a week at the cinema!

Our productions always take place at the fantastic Neues Schauspiel Leipzig. You can click the image below to find out more about them or buy tickets for our next production:
