English Theater of Performing Arts
The English Theater of Performing Arts was conceived with the aim of promoting English language culture and intercultural communication through the performing arts with particular emphasis on public performances.
From traditional evergreens to the contemporary scene, we produce engaging theater within a wide range of possibilities and styles. We are not limited to a specific type of production, with the only exception that they are all performed with a focus on the English language. Our goal is to share experiences through the spoken word in combination with all possible forms of artistic expression - drama, music, media and visual art.

More about us...
With revues, concerts, as well as full theatrical productions, we encourage learning, communication and cultural exchange through the concept of ‘Edu-tainment’ (a blending of education and entertainment). Studies have proven that people can learn language and communication particularly well through the study of dialogues from theatrical pieces as well as song lyrics. In addition, Bilingual productions with themes that promote understanding, celebrate cultural differences as well as point out similarities, are on offer.
We have a performing ensemble that is consists of professional actors and musicians as well as talented amateurs who come from all walks of life and many different countries and cultures. Their fluency in English ranges from beginner to native speaker.
