Established in 1946, the “Theater des Bergarbeiter”, as it was known then, became a springboard for many famous actors and directors in the 1960s and 1970s. After a thorough renovation, the theatre reopened as the neue Bühne Senftenberg in October 1993. Manuel Soubeyrand has been the Artistic Director since 2014.
With classroom productions, Christmas fairytales and plays for young people on the one hand and productions of famous classics from theatre history, contemporary works and musical evenings on the other, the neue Bühne offers a varied, high-quality programme supplemented by guest performances by well-known artists.
The repertoire also includes the Senftenberg readings and the Cabaret à la Carte series with interesting guests. The neue Bühne also offers a wide range of educational events, plus the regular "Open Day" on May 1. The highlight of every season is the annual Theatrical Spectacle.
