Drama Productions

Leipzig International School has a tradition for excellent drama productions - having staged a plethora of challenging, innovative and classical theatrical events. Performances are showcased in one major Drama production in Secondary School which the school holds each year, as well as other productions showing wonderful creativity and the abilities of Primary School students.

Drama promotes personal and interpersonal skills, supports self-confidence, individual growth and trust resulting in valuable life and professional skills. LIS students increase their knowledge appreciation for the dramatic arts as performers and informed audience members. A variety of performance opportunities are available throughout the school year in classroom and extra-curricular contexts.

In our Primary School, a show is put on in term 2 though the planning starts at the beginning of the schools year with auditions, rehearsals, sets, props and more. Although Coronavirus and subsequent restrictions meant the cancellation of the 2020 and 2021 shows, there are still fond memories of the most ‘recent’ show ‘Pantastic’ – a Peter Pan musical with catchy songs and a fantastically humorous script.

Each year our Secondary students present a play in the Aula on three consecutive evenings. Students will see posters around the school  advertising auditions for the selected drama production. Any student who is interested in acting and moving should audition to be a member of the cast. These shows are a highlight for many members of our school community.

Major productions involve the talents of students’ right across the school. These have included shows as diverse as Claire Dowie's “Adult Child, Dead Child”, Oscar Wilde's “The Importance of Being Earnest”, George Dibden-Pitt’s “Sweeney Todd” right through to Christopher Hampton's “Les Liaisons Dangereuses”, and Bertolt Brecht’s “Mother Courage and her Children”.

We are pleased that a cooperation with Schauspiel Leipzig has been launched (since the 2019/2020 season). The Schauspiel Leipzig invites schools to network with them.

With this cooperation we enter into a mutual and stimulating exchange. The agreement is combined, among other things, with the 'Schul-Abo-Spezial'.
