20th Anniversary Party | 2021
Due to the pandemic and the regulations by the government we are not able to organise the event this year. We plan to arrange the party in early 2021. More details later!

Brunch at the beginning of the new season | 4.10.2020
We want to invite our members to our annual brunch as usual. But this year the concept will be different – meeting only outside the building, assuming good weather and keeping the social distance as required. You’ll be invited soon…
7. Friends exclusive show - »Peer Gynt« | 16.2.2020
For each new production we offer one show exclusive to our members – and you can book as many tickets as you like. After the show there is always a little reception and the »Mendelsohn Counter« (the old box office). This is always a nice opportunity to meet old and new friends…
Introduction to FIND | 16.1.2020
This year the Festival International New Drama (FIND) celebrates its 20th anniversary under the title of »Counter image and counter force«. From 11th to 22nd March international playwrights of the contemporary theatre present their recent works at the Schaubühne. As in past years we arranged an introductory event: dramaturges Nils Haarmann and Florian Borchmeyer gave insight into 2020’s FIND programme and highlights.
Friends celebrate: New Year’s Reception | 17.1.2020
Just one day later director Dr. Friedrich Barner had invited our members to his annual New Year’s Reception. In its 9th year the traditional meet-up once more offered the chance to (re-)connect with old and new friends – and it was booked out within a day.

Rehearsal »Orlando« | 17 and 18 June 2019
Two rehearsal attendances had to be scheduled to satisfy the overwhelming response to our invitation. On these days, members had the exclusive opportunity to observe Katie Mitchell and the British-German crew work on the Virginia Woolf-based play »Orlando« (premiere at the Schaubühne on 5th September 2019). We were impressed by the enormous amount of (technical) work that goes into such a multimedia production: director Mitchell juggles a variety of camera perspectives, smooth costume and scene changes and her personnel all at the same time. It seems like one minute on stage equal two hours of rehearsal! Around 6.00 pm we left the rehearsal in excited anticipation of the upcoming production and with an insight into the demanding preparations for what appears so seemless on stage.
