Much Ado About Nothing - a great success!

Much Ado About Nothing, by William Shakespeare, directed by Carol McNamara, was a great delight and proved that a Shakespeare comedy isn't the hard fare that people imagine if it is approached in the light-hearted vein in which it was written. Audiences loved it, as was proven by our average sales of 84%, and our crowning glory was Jasper, a lovable, well-behaved English Springer Spanial and excellent acting dog! Wit, wickedness, song, dance and a happy end - what more could you want!

Who would have thought that having 36 people on stage in a production could run so smoothly. Many thanks to our director Rebecca Garron, assistant Julia Weitschat and our wonderful musical director Florian Miro, not to mention all the… Continue

Opel Dello carpark no longer available for theatre patrons!

Our flyers have all gone out already, but the news is that patrons of Theater an der Marschnerstraße are no longer able to use the Dello car park - it has been sold and will be redeveloped! So when you come to see our November production A Christmas Carol, bear that in mind. It might be best to come by train - U-Bahn Hamburger Strasse.
See you there!
