Theater Competition

Theater Competition © Goethe-Institut

Acting is fun, it motivates, and you can learn German while doing it, too!

So, go ahead and be dramatic! The Goethe-Institut and the Zentralstelle für das Auslandsschulwesen invite students to participate in our 2018 Theater Competition.


Each drama group, consisting of three students, should choose one of the following fairytales:
The Frog King (also known as the Frog Prince)
Mother Holle
Rumpelstiltskin

The drama groups will stage one of the fairytales above and film their own production.  Afterwards, they are asked send their recordings to the Goethe-Institut. The play should not last longer than five minutes.
The Goethe-Institut and the Zentralstelle für das Auslandsschulwesen will select the best groups and invite them to a theater workshop in Texas in the fall.

You can find drama excercises for your classroom here.

Detailed descriptions, rules, and regulations for participation can be read here:


The deadline for the submission of entries is Monday, April 30, 2018.
