Magdeburg Puppet Theatre puts on 500 performances every season and attracts over 50,000 visitors and is therefore one of the most successful theatres of its kind in Germany. The venue also has an excellent international reputation thanks to its huge repertoire for both children and adults and the fact that it performs 6 to 8 new productions every year alongside a multitude of guest performances both in Germany and further afield.
Other successful highlights of the Puppet Theatre include the largest public collection of puppets and puppetry accessories in central Germany in the “villa p.”, the International Puppetry Festival – “CHANGE OF VIEW”, the “KinderKulturTage” children’s culture days, educational activities in the fields of theatre and puppetry and its very own “Jugendkunstschule”, a school of arts for children and young people.
