Welcome to Upstage:

Upcoming Events

Apart from our productions, we hold regular play readings and run theatre workshops. These are open to both members and non-members - join us and get to know our theatre group!

Berne's English-language Amateur Theatre Group

Located in beautiful Berne, Switzerland, Upstage staged their first production in 1982. Since then our lively theatre group has staged over 75 productions and has become a permanent part of the Bernese theatre scene. Each year we put on an autumn and a spring production at the Theater am Käfigturm. Throughout the year we hold regular play readings and workshops. All dates and venues are publicized on this website and are also published on our Facebook page.

Each production requires the participation of many volunteers both onstage and behind the scenes. If you are interested in joining us, Upstage offers a wide range of opportunities to participate in English-language theatre productions. We might have something just right for you!

Our Covid-19 safety policy: 3G

To allow everyone to participate in Upstage events and theatre productions without fear and to keep participants and their families safe, we have revised our Covid-19 safety concept and adopted the 3G-rule, which is already a requirement for participating in many cultural and sports events.

You are welcome to participate in Upstage indoor activities if you are:

  • Geimpft: vaccinated with a Covid certificate, or
  • Genesen: you had Covid, as shown by the Covid certificate, or
  • Getestet: you can show a proof of a testing negative for Covid on the day of the activity. We will accept a self-test unless a stricter ruling is imposed by the government
  • Furthermore, we continue to require masks for all indoor activities.
