Welcome to the website of the

English Drama Group of the University of Würzburg!

The English Drama Group was founded in 1975 and has been a part of the university ever since. At the end of each semester, a new play is performed. During the last few years, the EDG has experimented with different types of theatre, e.g. immersive theatre, promenade theatre, improv theatre, while also putting on more traditional forms of stage plays. All of our past productions were very well received by our audience.

In the EDG, we communicate exclusively in English. Members of the group will therefore not only get to know a new play each semester (which might be very useful for their studies) and contribute to its production, but will also improve their English. Moreover, we organize socials and fundraisers (e.g. The English Pub Quiz), which makes the EDG a great place to get to know new people and make friends.

We are always looking for new actors/actresses and backstage staff. If you are an artist of any kind (graphic designer, dancer/choreographer, webmaster, singer), there is a good chance we might need you in our next production, as well. If you play an instrument you might be interested in joining the English Drama Band.

If you are interested in becoming a member of our little club, come to our first meeting and make sure that you are available on rehearsal nights (the backstage team follows a separate schedule) - or contact us by email or on Facebook.

Rehearsal times: Mon & Wed 6pm

First meeting: first Wednesday of the semester, 6pm HS 1, Philos. Inst. All welcome!

If you are interested in or have questions about upcoming (or past) productions or would like to reserve tickets, please contact us at kathrin.zoeller@uni-wuerzburg.de or karin.kernahan@uni-wuerzburg.de
