About Us

 

Who are we?

The English Drama Group Salzburg is an amateur theatre group based in Salzburg. Established in 1967, we were once part of the curriculum of the English Department of the University of Salzburg. As such we have kept close ties to the university. Now we are however an independent amateur theatre group with members from all around the globe and all walks of life.

 

What do we do?

We bring quality English theatre to the stage of course!
Our drama cycle starts at the beginning of the winter semester in October and ends in June at the end of the following summer semester. Roughly the cycle can be divided into two parts.
The first part is from October until December where we meet once a week (usually Tuesday evenings) for our workshops. In the workshops we learn drama techniques and all that is needed for a great quality performance. The highlight of the workshops is the Christmas Performance in December – all members of the workshop take part in it and perform for an audience together for the first time.
After Christmas the second and exciting part of the Drama cycle begins: the rehearsals for the big production. Every year towards the end of May/beginning of June we perform a play (usually 5-7 performances) in the ArgeKultur Salzburg.  The rehearsals are held a few times a week (depending on factors such as how large the role is, how many people are involved in it, how close we are to the performance).

 

Why should you join us?

We are people from all walks of life: some of us work, some study, others do something else entirely. What unites us is a passion for drama and theatre and love of the English language. If you have both and are willing to put in the time and effort to put on a production with us, come and join us!

 

Who are we looking for?

People from all walks of life with a passion for theatre, a solid command of English and a sense of commitment.
