Glad, to have you here!


Every year, five young people have the opportunity to be part of the Schauspielhaus Zürich for an entire season. For 12 months they are part of the theatre pedagogy team and, in addition, can work in the areas of directing, dramaturgy, project planning and public relations. Furthermore, they can get a taste of all other departments as well. Together with the theatre pedagogy, they design and co-lead workshops with school classes and assist with the youth clubs. They visit rehearsals, help the dramaturges with research, and eavesdrop on management meetings. Maybe they stand in as extras, maybe they help set designers build models. They certainly develop their own formats and are organisers of the Open Stage. During this trial year, the Five are extensively accompanied and supported.


The Open Stage is a series of events organized and carried out by Theaterjahr and offers all young people the opportunity to try themselves out on stage in 10-minute contributions. The Open Stage takes place every second Saturday of the month at Matchbox in Schiffbau.

For every second open stage, the Theaterjahr also offers a pre-event workshop to get you in the mood for the open stage. The number of participants is limited to 20 and registration is required via theaterjahr@schauspielhaus.ch or via Instagram DM @theaterjahr.schauspielhaus.ch.
