Englisches Theater


Englisches TheaterIt’s all about drama!

With this year's P-Seminar production of Fahrenheit 451 the English Drama Group directed by Ines Baumer will have staged 18 plays since 2006. It all started by doing a self-written theater version of Louis Sacher’s children’s novel, Holes, in 2006 with a very enthusiastic 8th grade class determined to do English theater.
Doing English theater has helped many students to become more self-confident in speaking the English language along with schooling a variety of other important skills like teamwork, reliability, being able to present oneself or being able to improvise in difficult situations. It also gives students a chance to be creative in working on their roles by adding or changing scenes, costumes, and props. Through the years a great variety of plays have been staged in all genres from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to Homer’s Odyssey (The Story of Agent ODC). Since 2011 a P-Seminar has been often offered in English theater for the upper division classes along with the English Drama Group (Wahlkurs) for younger students grades 8-10.
