Easy and amusing entertainment: fairy tales and puppet shows for the kids and comedy and stand-up for the entire family.
Stadttheater Cöpenick provides a stage for so-called "boulevard theatre", i.e. easy and amusing entertainment: fairy tales and puppet shows for the kids and comedy and stand-up for the entire family.
Located right in the heart of old Köpenick, the Stadttheater has become an indispensable part of the neighbourhood.
History of Stadttheater Cöpenick
Stadttheater Cöpenick has a long history, going back to the 1889 performance of How to procure a woman.  Since then, many famous stars have taken the stage here, including Claire Waldoff, Hilde Hildebrandt, and Helmut Zacharias.
By the early 1950s, though, those times were over as the building became dilapidated and had to be demolished. Köpenick made do without a theatre for the next four decades.
That changed in 1992 when the Stadttheater Cöpenick was reborn, with Wat braucht der Berliner as its opening show, performed in Köpenick's city hall. In mid-1994, the ensemble moved into the listed Kunstfabrik Köpenick, which has been its home since. The company has since done 126 different shows on the stage
and several well-known actors from film, television, and theatre come out here to tread the boards, including the likes of Manfred Richter, Dieter Hildebrandt and Annekathrin Bürger.
A family theater
Das Stadttheter is now fully an intergenerational stage for the whole family. It presents a varied programme of classic fairy tale plays, puppet shows, and dramatic pieces. It also hosts a variety of talk shows, concerts, shows, and cabarets. Tools such as gestural theatre, clowning, masque, and the rhythm language of musical instruments and bodies come together here resulting in creative pieces.
