Suit the action to the word, the word to the action, with this special observance, that you o’erstep not the modesty of nature: for any thing so o’erdone is from the purpose of playing, whose end, both at the first and now, was and is, to hold as ’twere the mirror up to nature: to show virtue her feature, scorn her own image, and the very age and body of the time his form and pressure.

Hamlet Act 3, scene 2, 17–24

If you want to support and help us – either on-stage or backstage – why not join us? We are always looking for new theatre enthusiasts who want to help a production come to life. Working in the theatre offers such a wide range of possibilities that we can certainly fit you in somewhere in a running production. Not only do we seek new actors or directors for new productions, but we are grateful for any help we can get when building the stage or support with make-up or costumes. So join us and become a member!

Becoming a member is quite easy. Just come and attend our next Vollversammlung and talk to our head of committee, or write an e-mail at vorsitz[at]busc.de. You can also meet us at our monthly Stammtisch. We always announce the next meeting on our homepage, so it’s a good idea to check back sometimes. And with a small member fee of 20 Euro per year you make sure that we can continue to produce shows for our audience in the future.

By the way: Of course you can always audition if you are not a member yet. Just come to one of the auditions and show us what you have inside you. Grab the audition text and discover a Desdemona or an Othello within you. Be a sinister Richard III and wow us with a performance of Kate the Curst! We are looking forward to seeing you!

If you are interested in becoming a member, please get in touch with vorsitz[at]busc.de!
