About us


Once a year, the Starke Stücke Festival shows outstanding international theater productions for young audiences in the Rhine-Main region. Between 80 and 90 performances for all age groups take place at around 30 locations. Round-table sessions and post-show discussions offer the opportunity for exchanging opinions.As part of the accompanying program on theater-related education, "Children explore theater”, between 50 and 60 workshops are held for school classes and groups of children. The workshops investigate enjoyment of the performances and provide access to the performing arts.The festival is financed by a network of municipal and private organizers who support and encourage quality children’s and youth theater and cultural education in the region under the umbrella of KulturRegion FrankfurtRheinMain.
