Plays for young audiences
Every year, students from the age of 10 and up enjoy our special youth production. The plays deal with topics and stories that reflect the experiences and literary interests of our young audience. The language is adapted to their level and we support teachers with scripts, worksheets and follow-up workshops. This season The English Theatre Frankfurt will present an adaptation of the Oscar Wilde classic, The Canterville Ghost, for our young audiences.
The performance has been specifically designed for a target audience between the ages of 11 and 14. In other words, it is most suitable for the 5th to 7th grades.
Students from the third grade and up who are more fluent in English are also most welcome to attend.
The duration of the show is approximately 60 minutes, with an actor talkback session afterwards. Price: € 10 per ticket. This includes a textbook and detailed materials for working with students. The materials can be downloaded from our website at no extra cost.
Accompanying teachers receive free tickets.

The Canterville Ghost
A play by Clive Duncan, adapted from a short story by Oscar Wilde
For three centuries, the Canterville Ghost has been perfectly happy rattling chains, clanking armour and generally haunting Canterville. Enter the Otis family – Yankee upstarts with thoroughly modern ideas. Frightening these nonplussed American tenants proves to be not only infuriating but almost impossible for the temperamental British ghost. Yet, through the courageous friendship of one of the young Otis children, the Canterville Ghost finally finds peace. Oscar Wilde’s tale is told with whimsical humour and charm.
Price: € 10 per ticket.
