First English Book Case in Frankfurt

Sharing the newsletter sent out by the English Theatre Frankfurt on 30 October 2013.


On Thursday 24th October 2013, the English Theatre Frankfurt (ETF) opened Europe’s first public book case exclusively for books written in English.

Our guests of honor were Lord Mayor Peter Feldmann and the former Mayor of Cultural Affairs, Hilmar Hoffmann, among other wonderful friends of the ETF.

Take a look at the opening with the ensemble of Saturday Night Fever and our Lord Mayor: http://www.flickr.com/photos/69838251@N05/sets/72157636930213096/

The book case works like this:

People are invited to leave books for others to take, like a book exchange in a public space. We believe this will work splendidly in front of our main entrance, as the performances draw not only thousands of teachers and students but also native speakers who live and work in Frankfurt as well as people who are generally interested in the English language.

The ETF has taken on the responsibility for the book case. Our staff will make sure that the book case is clean and that there are no inappropriate books on display.

Please join us in launching our book case by bringing an English book with you to the previews of Saturday Night Fever, or when passing by the theatre. Whether it’s a classroom favorite or a personal favorite, your book will help make the first English book case in Frankfurt a success.

Please pass this message on to your friends who might want to contribute to the first public book case IN ENGLISH.

Casting at English Theatre Frankfurt

Posted 7 September 2011:


The English Theatre Frankfurt is looking for talented boys to play the role of YOUNG TOMMY in our upcoming production, The Who’s Tommy.  In our adaption of the classic musical, Tommy appears as an adult, a young boy (aged 12-14) and a child (aged 7).

We are looking for six performers between 6 and 9 years and six performers between 10 and 15 years. The “young Tommys” have no speaking role and do not need to sing or dance, but should have some stage experience and a desire to act.

For further information about The Who’s Tommy, please visit our website at www.english-theatre.de


Auditions will be held on 17th September 2011 at the English Theatre and. 

Please send your application exclusively via e-mail to casting@english-theatre.de

You will then receive an invitation for the auditions; the auditions will take about 20 minutes.

The application should include a picture of your son as well as your address and contact information. We would appreciate also receiving a short description of your son’s stage experience (for example, in school theatre productions).


Rehearsals will take place from 1 to 11 November in Frankfurt, with performances running from 12 November 2011 to 12 February 2012. Each actor will perform only once each week.

During the autumn school holidays (17 to 23 November), two young actors accompanied by one parent each will take part in the production’s London rehearsals, with travel and accommodation costs paid for by the English Theatre.

Our son Thomas auditioned for the role of young Wolfgang in “Cabaret”  and played this role for over four months (2005/2006) . It was a good experience, for all of us.

An Ideal Husband at the English Theatre Frankfurt

Being a big fan of Oscar Wilde, I took the opportunity to see the preview showing of An Ideal Husband at the English Theatre in Frankfurt.

Quoted from the theatre’s flyer:

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” In Oscar Wilde’s play, a rising politician, Sir Robert Chiltern has the ideal career, the ideal wife and the ideal social ranking. But all of his eminence is suddenly endangered when the scheming and mysterious Mrs. Cheveley threatens to blackmail him and expose a youthful act of corruption.

As the lies, blackmail and incriminating documents come to light, it becomes clear that the man thought to be perfect is in fact flawed. Now, the man with all the flaws must do something right, and the question remains: what makes an ideal husband?

An Ideal Husband, a comedy of manners, starts playing today.

For performances between 27 Feb – 6 Mar 2010, you save 25% on your ticket (prices from € 21,00).

Call 069 – 242 316 – 20 or e-mail: box-office@english-theatre.de
