About The Caretakers

The Caretakers is an English-language theatre group or association, which was founded in 2010 in Bern. We foster all aspects of amateur theatre and performance and are always open to new ideas!

What has made the theatre group so exceptional over the years has been the ability of all the people taking part in our productions, the actors, directors, stage managers, the costumers, the set builders, the props directors, the make-up artists, sound and lighting crews, every single person involved in a production to work closely together in an ensemble.

Furthermore, most of our productions are home-grown. Most of our plays are written by our in-house authors and we have even been cheeky enough to update Shakespeare, Dickens, and Snow White.

We are an open group, and anyone can come to our auditions – or even propose an entirely new production! Sign up to our newsletter to stay informed about opportunities or contact the committee if you have questions or ideas!
