Junges Theater

Who knew that theatre was so young? We are indeed thinking of younger audiences here by creating the Young Theater Casino Zug. The programme, and how you interact with it, is aimed at young people, families and also schools yet spans the generations. We will be performing plays for children and young adults which deal directly with subjects around growing up and which give you a chance to experience theatre in all its shapes and sizes and in various aesthetics – designed for families, schools or directly in classrooms. After all, what could be more exciting than getting to join your heroes on stage and seeing how they go about their craft, all while making new friends? 

At the same time, it is our aim to use the performances to fuel discussions, provide different points of view and encourage individual creative approaches to the subject matter which go beyond the visit to the theatre. As such, the Young Theater Casino Zug offers different ways of interacting with the plays – via an event around the performance or special offers for schools such as workshops and teaching materials, and we recommend teaching staff taking a look at the school flyer.

The Young Theater Casino Zug already has a rich and varied programme for its first year, as you will already have been able to read. Trials and tribulations are on the agenda not only for «Heidi feiert Weihnachten» and «Emma und der Rehwolf», but also in our two successful classroom plays «Einfach Yeshi!» and «Paul*», which children and young adults will love in equal measure. There is excitement and adventure in our first coproduction entitled «S’letschte Märlibuch», and for young adults, there are two Shakespeare classics, namely «Ein Sommernachtstraum» and «Hamlet», as well as many more drama and dance performance such as the thrilling dance show «Sei kein Mann». 

As you can see, there are so many reasons to come to the theatre, and we can’t wait to see you here again!

Classroom plays 

Two classroom plays are now part of our programme, with teaching staff able to book them for their classes. It will give students a new perspective on their customary environment and the chance to experience actors at close hand. The plays can be shown directly in classrooms without any need for complicated technology and last for the duration of two lessons. In the first period, the students will get to experience the play, while in the second, there is a fun content-based follow-up with the theatre’s drama educator.


Can be reserved for students and broadcast in their classrooms on an agreed date.
