News June 2020

After the summer holidays, schools will no longer be obliged to observe the rules about social distancing. Hence, there are two options for viewing a Platypus Theater play: A school can book a show exclusively for itself – in this case, social distancing wouldn’t be necessary in the theater. If you are interested in booking a show for 100+ pupils, please get in touch with our office (mail@platypus-theater.de). We will organise the venue (BKA-Theater is still our main venue, but others are possible).

MAY 2020

We are very happy to announce that „Safestay Hostel“ has been nominated for the Ikarus Prize (Berlin Children's Theater Prize). We hope that we will be able to perform the show in November in time for the award ceremony.

The uncertainty of when and how we are allowed to perform again is very hard to endure. Unfortunately, it looks like children's and youth theater is not only hit hard by the crisis, but will also be affected by it for a long time.

Thanks for your supportive emails and your donations. We really appreciate them.
