English Theatre offers English language performances to audiences in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland. Performances are produced by the AMERICAN DRAMA GROUPE EUROPE (ADGE) based in Munich, Germany and performed by British theatre companies: TNT THEATRE BRITAIN or TOUR de FORCE THEATRE COMPANY.
ADGE tours plays and adaptations of classical and modern literature in English throughout the world. The company also tours plays in Spanish and French. In the season 2011/2012 almost 1,000 performances were given in over 30 countries on four continents. While TNT and Tour de Force have their individual styles and directors, the organisation as a whole aims to present dynamic, accessible and illuminating theatre that appeals to a wide audience, including those whose first language is not English. These companies recruit professional actors in London, New York and Paris where auditions are held for every new production. The artistic directors are: Paul Stebbings for TNT and Peter Joucla for Tour de Force. The producer for ADGE is Grantly Marshall.
English Theatre has been organising shows in the Czech Republic since 1997, since 2004 in Slovakia and since 2005 in Poland. Performances in all three countries are held mainly in the mornings because the majority of our audiences are secondary school students, but all public are welcome. The language of the plays is unabridged and there are stagescripts available for audiences on the website. The performances are highly visual and are usually accompanied by original music and dynamic movement. You don´t have to be a native speaker of English to comprehend and enjoy these shows. We invite you to come and see for yourselves and experience what has been called "the best touring theatre in the world." /China National TV/
