Upcoming Events

Improv-Workshops Incoming!

You might have heard the phrase “We will have to improvise” at least once in your life. But what does it mean to “improvise” and what has that got to do with theatre? Come and find out in our two new improv-workshop formats, the Improbox, focused on shorter exercises and good-old fun, and the Improflow, all-day workshops honing in on long-format and narrative improv. The workshops will take place in July and August.

Reading Pool Meetings

We are taking a summer break, but our readings will continue again in September. They will again take place on every second Thursday of the month. Come to the Cafe Marta in Bern, read your favorite text or just drink a pint and listen! Full details here

Watch Train of Thought

After a very succesfull festival-run, we are proud to announce that Jack R. Williams’ film is now available on our website and YouTube! Check it out here.

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!
