"Buntes Republik"

Entertainment play in black and white by Ulf Dietrich and Manfred Langner Back in the wild 1960s in Germany: The company of furniture manufacturer Heinrich Bunte is buzzing. His wife Gertrud, his little daughter Uschi and he himself are the model family of the time. But suddenly his rich German economic wonderland is shaken: by the student movement and the sexual revolution. Or is it the launch of color television? In any case, while Daddy Bunte wants to pair his daughter off with the aspiring department head Dr. Baumann, she wears a skirt that is much too short and has her eye on the Italian guest worker Giorgio. In addition, Karl-Friedrich, the son of his domestic servant Elfi, suddenly brings left-wing ideas into his home, and his wife Gertrud suddenly reads books by a certain Oswald Kolle and makes demands ... The family inevitably gets caught up in the entertaining vortex of social upheaval in one of the most exciting and colorful decades of our country. Schlager, Beat, student protests, sexual liberation, pill, color television: the opulent, nostalgic comedy Buntes Republik recounts the feeling of life and love of the sixties - with lots of music and just as biting, lively and ironic. A fun journey back in time to Germany's economic miracle!

Play by Lajos Wenzel, based on the novel by Sebastian Fitzek
A road trip full of drama, comedy and unpredictable turns - with two quirky, heartfelt main characters who couldn't be more different. Livius Reimer is on his way from Munich to Berlin to save his marriage. But on this day his flight is cancelled and he has to share the only available rental car with a young woman of the "tofu terrorist" type. In his eyes she is too weird, too loud, too unusual - with her unconventional view of the world, Lea overwhelms Livius from the first second. Shortly after leaving, Livius gets involved in an unusual thought experiment by Lea - however, he doesn't know that this encounter will not only change their road trip completely, but his whole life ...

"Dancing Lessons"

Play by Mark St. Germain
Professor Ever Montgomery has to learn to dance for an awards ceremony. It's not really a difficult task, but Ever is autistic. He abhors physical contact and organizes his everyday life according to strict rules. His life is now thrown into turmoil when he chooses his neighbor Senga Quinn to be his dance teacher. Senga is a dancer who has a broken leg after an accident and it is uncertain whether she will ever be able to work again. So their mood during the lessons is pretty tense. Over the course of a few weeks, the dissimilar dance partners get closer - maybe even closer than either of them ever thought. Mark St. Germain has written a touching and funny piece about an unlikely couple who learn much more important things about each other and themselves in the course of their dance lessons.
With Madeleine Niesche and Ralf Stech.
Directed by: Heinz Kreidl

"Little Peter's Journey to the Moon"

A space mission & musical by Kim Langner and Axel Weidemann, based on the fairy tale by Gerdt von Bassewitz
One night, Peter and his little sister Anni receive an unexpected visit from the anxious May bug Mr Sumsemann. He urgently needs the help of the two children. A few centuries ago, a cunning snake magicked away the sixth little leg of the great-great-great-great-great-great-great Sumsemann. As punishment, the evil snake was banished to the moon by the mighty night fairy. Since then, all descendants of the Sumsemann family have only had five little legs. This curse can only be broken with the help of two children brave enough to travel to the moon with Mr Sumsemann and defeat the mean snake. The space mission starts and our freshly baked astronauts have to face many adventures. They meet the important sandman, Mother Holle, the famous night fairy, fight evil together and with a bit of luck they even get to know Santa Claus personally.

Drama with music, book by Gottfried Greiffenhagen, musical arrangement by Franz Wittenbrink
Fascinated by the American a cappella formation "The Revelers", the drama student Harry Frommermann decided to set up a similar ensemble in Berlin in 1927.

A few months later, he assembled a powerful sextet that quickly were well known throughout Germany: Robert Biberti, Ari Leschnikoff, Roman Cycowski, Erich Collin and Harry Frommermann became the "Comedian Harmonists".

But the legendary rise of the group, which culminated in a performance in the Berlin Philharmonic, was followed by the tragic end due to National Socialism ...
