Thank You For This Theaternacht!

What a night! Thank you to each and every one who came to see our shows, all of which were sold out! A big thank you also goes to the cast and crew of all of our three productions: Tom Stoppard’s Fifteen-Minute-Hamlet, directed by Tracy Tollmann and Janine Lockwood, opened the night at the Brotfabrik on the main stage; the Villains & Victims tour, directed by Christine Essling and Eva-Lotte Hill, showed brave visitors all around the premises all night, even adding a third tour to its run due to popular demand; and Bonn’s Next Supercast had the Kulturkneipe bursting at its seams. We are so thrilled, and cannot wait to see all of you again at the Theaternacht 2016!

Bonn Theatre Night 2015

 

Bonner Theaternacht 2015: There’s Method in Madness

BUSC took part in this year’s theatren night with 3 productions, more or less in English: On the main stage, 15 Minute Hamlet  summarised Shakespeare’s best known drama in an unconventional way. Participants of the Villains and Victims Tour  got to see the most obscure corners of the Brotfabrik and meet famous villains and their equally famous victims. Later that night the sensational casting show Bonn‘s Next Supercast took place in the “Kulturkneipe”, Brotfabrik’s own pub, in  which the audience saw denglish madness breaking loose.

15 Minute Hamlet

19.30 – 19.45 und 20.15 – 20.30 | Theatersaal (main stage)

 Come and see Shakespeare’s most famous play ‘Hamlet’ in an exciting and abridged format by the award winning British writer and playwright Tom Stoppard. It brings the tragic story of the Prince of Denmark to life at high velocity. All the iconic memorable moments remain, from the ghost of the dead king’s apparition through Hamlet’s famous descent into madness, and its murderous denouement.  The language of this play is Shakespeare’s own and remains true to the Bard… ‘there’s something rotten in the state of Denmark’ but nothing rotten in this show!

Villains and Victims Tour 2015

21.00 – 21.45 und 23.00 – 23.45 | Start at the main foyer

Meet the greatest, most devilish characters of theatre! For decades now the Brotfabrik has been home to the Bonn University Shakespeare Company. But years and years of gory plays don’t go by without leaving their mark. Join us on a guided tour through the sacred walls and find out who stayed behind and is still lurking in the shadows!

Where do we start? You’ll meet Dr. Adalbert Allington – the BUSC’s very own expert for architectural attractions – in the Brotfabrik‘s foyer. With deep knowledge and exceptional wit he is going to guide you through the unknown facilities of Bonn’s famous cultural centre. On the way, you might stumble upon a few well-known figures that you recognize from former BUSC plays. But remember: Do not provoke the grim looking ones!

Bonn´s Next Supercast

22.30 – 22.50 und 23.45 – 00.05 | KulturKneipe

The directress Diddi Desperada desperately needs an english-speaking cast for her new project. But nowadays the casting process itself has to fulfill the high standards of shallow entertainment and questionable values, right? How fortunate that Heidi and Bruce are in town to offer their support with their professional help and excellent DEnglish skills… Come and join us for their show of “Bonn´s Next Supercast”.
