European Musical School Festival 2016

2nd to 7th May 2016

The Idea

Mucials have been performed at European theatres since the 1950s. Since the 1980s, the number of private and public schools educating musical theatre actors has been increased. Mutual contacts between those schools occurred more or less accidentually, always depending on the personal engagement of a particular lecturer. The European Musical School Festival in 2014 shall be a place, where – for the first time – the most important representatives of musical training meet with their students in a kind of campus, to get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere, to exchange experiences and to present the results of their training in public performances. Apart from that, a number of selected workshops will provide practical knowledge and different teaching methods. The festival will be multi-lingual: Performances can be played in the corresponding national language, workshops will be held in English.

The Stages

There are three stages of different dimensions and technical equipment for the participating training institutions to present their plays on:
- Great Hall (746 seats, 10,5-13,5 m width by 8,0 m depth by 7,5 m height)
- Small Hall (295 seats, 13,5 m width by 7,5 m depth by 5,2 m height)
- Studio Theatre (96 seats, 9,0 m width by 7,0 m depth by 4,4 m height)
Ground plots you find here. For more technical details please don‘t hesitate to contact our staff. Performances can be shown in the corresponding national language and are open to the public.

The Campus Spirit

The Festival isn‘t meant to be a competitive exhibition. The idea is rather an exchange in terms of the campus spirit. The Uckermaerkische Buehnen Schwedt and the adjacent park will form the centre of this campus, providing students and lecturers the opportunity to meet, to learn from each other, to socialize with each other and during breaks to discuss their matters of study and career.
Along with the schools‘ performances, round tables will take place as well as (an) Open Stage evening(s) and a joint final gala on the open-air stage near the Alte Oder river, where every school is welcome to send some students to participate in the preparation.
It will be appreciated, if every school organizes at least one workshop during the Festival, demonstrating where its strengths lie in. Workshops won‘t be open to the public.
They are organized for the students of the other schools, whereas lecturers are welcome as listeners. This should be a very simple way to learn about means and methods of education in other institutions. Depending on the workshops‘ subject matter, the number of participants will be limited, so prior application will be necessary. Language of instruction is English.

The Organizer

The Uckermaerkische Buehnen Schwedt theatre is a municipal theatre, situated approximately 100 km north east of Berlin. Providing four performance venues with a total of 1,996 available seats and attracting approximately 145,000 visitors per year, the house ranks among the most successful theatres of the Federal State of Brandenburg. The ubs are an one branch theatre with own acting ensemble. But, for a couple of years, attention has been focused on the engagement of musical theatre actors with evident interest in acting. Stagings like “West Side Story” (2000), “Fiddler on the Roof” (2000), “Little Shop of Horrors” (2011) as well as the recent first releases of “Sonnenallee” (2001) and “Ambush in the Fairies‘ Forest” (2012) are evidence of the versatility and the high level of the Schwedt ensemble. Furthermore, due to the immediate vicinity of Poland, international engagement and co-operation have been essential to the theatre‘s management for more than 20 years.
