Welcome to Upstage:

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!

Covid-19 Pandemic

We will be back on stage in November at the Theater am Käfigturm, with a Covid proof safety concept.

Announcing our autumn production

Tickets to our shows are sold through the Theater am Käfigturm, either online, at the box office or at the office of Anzeiger Region Bern, Bubenbergplatz 8 (Mo - Fr 09:00 - 17:00).

A Maze

Jessica is being interviewed on a TV talk-show just a week after escaping from a eight-year captivity. Oksana drops Paul off at a rehab facility as a first step to reviving the success of their rock band. Beeson is obsessively working on the next volume of his 15,000 page comic book. As they each struggle to take charge of their lives and work their way out of a maze, their separate stories are woven together into a larger tale where the boundaries between reality and fiction blur.
