The »SCHOTTE« was founded in 1991 as a children’s and youth theatre centre in Erfurt. There are currently about 250 active kids and young people working in basic courses and performance groups. The theatre is equipped with an own stage and 100 seats for the audience. The present-day repertoire includes 22 pieces. There are about 200 performances and events every year.
“We pursue a kind of drama theatre that is not closing itself off from modern media, but basically we are a classic drama stage relying on the personalities of our actresses and actors.”
The SCHOTTE is a member of BDAT (Federal Association of German Amateur Theatres) and of TAT (Association of Thuringian Theatres). It is regularly invited to national as well as international theatre festivals. The children’s and youth theatre centre got numerous awards.
