City Theater

Musical theater, drama, ballet and concerts - in the heart of the city

The City Theater, which was designed by the famous German architect Oskar Kaufmann, celebrated its grand opening on the 1st of October 1911 with William Shakespeare’s «A Midsummer Night’s Dream». From its founding days, the theatre always had a strong backing by its audience, offering its support whenever possible. During an air raid in 1944, the building was almost completely destroyed, leaving only parts of the front wall unimpaired. In 1945, a makeshift stage was opened in the town house of Lehe. The reconstruction of the main building was picked up as early as 1950 and were completed on the 12th of April 1952. A major renovation followed during the years 1999/2000 – equipping the theatre with the latest stage technology, making it one of the most modern stages at that time.

In recent years, theatre critics have repeatedly praised the theatre’s outstanding performance. In 2015, the Stadttheater Bremerhaven won the German theatre award “Theaterpreis des Bundes”. Each season, Bremerhaven’s big stage (685 seats) and small stage (120 seats) offer a broad selection of productions from the genres of opera, plays, ballet and classical concerts. Since 2011/2012 the Stadttheater Bremerhaven has its own children’s and adolescents’ theatre (JUB!), offering an extensive cultural program to Bremerhaven’s youngest audience.
