The Piccolo Theater has a number of different sections: children’s and youth theatre, puppet and figure theatre, and dance education and theatre education. Artistic means are used to make theatre an experience from which children and young people can draw ideas and inspiration for their own lives.

The Piccolo Theater offers various children’s and youth clubs. For the children, the emphasis is placed on taking a playful approach, while the teenagers are presented with the challenge of developing their own plays, working with characters and experimenting with different possible ways of staging their ideas. The groups present the results of this work at the “Theatre Education Days” which take place each December. The staging project group has a special position. Its production is a regular feature of the programme and is usually performed ten times. It also puts on guest performances and takes part in youth festivals.

The Piccolo Theater offers preparation and follow-up sessions for theatre visits. Introductions to and discussions about its productions, practical exercises and holiday programmes for children round off its theatre work.
