This year Theater Waidspeicher celebrates its 40th jubilee. The Erfurt Puppet Theatre has existed since 1979. For this reason, we invite you to join us for a weekend of festivities from 13 to 15 September, 2019. 

The jubilee starts with the premiere of “Animalists” a play concerning people and animals directed by Frank Soehnle. On 14 September, you can take a tour through the history of the theatre with 40 puppets and 40 pictures covering 40 years. In the evening there is a performance of “The Master and Margrita” our latest ensemble production. The day closes with the jubilee-party and live music by the Erfurt band Gilbert Barracque. On 15 September Compagnie Les Voisins – Die Nachbarn

give a guest performance of their internationally successful prize-winning play for children “The Queen of Colours”. Theater Waidspeicher produced this play in 2001. On Sunday afternoon, we invite you to visit our studio/workshop. Our production for children and young people “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn” forms the finale.
