English Speaking Theatre in Munich
The Münchner Kammerspiele are among the most important stages in the German-speaking context. Since its beginnings, the theatre has been shaped by a strong ensemble, which particularly seeks the dialogue and confrontation with the present. The Münchner Kammerspiele conceive themselves as an aesthetically innovative, contemporary, and cosmopolitan municipal theatre with a socio-political focus. Since the 2015/16 season Münchner Kammerspiele are offering all theatre productions in Kammer 1 with English surtitles. More information on Kammer International.

Winter performances normally take place over the period of a week at the beginning of February, Summer performances in early July. The actors are students of Munich, the director is an English lecturer of the English Department. The performances are very popular and well known for the students' commitment and enthusiasm, lively acting and the good choice of plays. For the exact schedule please consult the Department of English of the University in January/February and June/July respectively - just pop in and ask students or the secretaries in the rear part of the ground floor:

American Drama Group Europe
The ADG Europe tours the whole of the continent and frequently stops in Munich too. All actors are native speakers, normally from Canada or the U.S.. The projects promotes not exclusively but mainly American Drama in Europe and the world.
When in Munich, the group performs at the Amerikahaus, home to the Bavarian-American Center for cultural relations, research and exchange between Bavaria and the Americas.
Not a fixed institution, but certainly worthwhile looking at: Pasinger Fabrik often hosts English speaking drama groups for a few days or weeks - in a very informal atmosphere and with the stage so close to the audience, wherever you sit you have the feeling of being centre stage. Just have a look regularly at the schedule of Pasinger Fabrik and you might end up enjoying a most hilarious evening.
