We would like to form a teachers' association open to all teachers who are interested into the theatre and its contents. The members get exclusive insights into the work of the Schauspielhaus and the Junges Schauspielhaus. The schedule includes viewing visits to performances before the premiere, followed by a discussion. Here we find out together whether and for which students performances are exciting and useful, and we gain insights into the development processes and backgrounds of artistic productions.

In addition, there are up to four Mafia meetings a year devoted to special themes, working methods and performances of the Junges Schauspielhaus. These two- to three-hour meetings are work and exchange meetings at which we discuss the possibilities of cooperation and dialogue between theatre and school.

Invitations to the meetings and viewing dates are sent via e-mail. If you want to become part of the Mafia, you can register here:

20. September 2018: We talk about the program 2018/2019 of the Schauspielhaus Bochum and the Junges Schauspielhaus; guided tour through the theatre, 18:00 - 21:00, meeting point at the stage entrance of the Schauspielhaus

1 December 2018: Symposium on Social Art, part of the programme of Bespiel mal Bochum! at Humboldtstraße 40, 44787 Bochum, Germany

May 2019: Discussions and debates on diversity and inclusion in theatre. Critical whiteness exercises. Accompanying the performance of 2069 – Das Ende der Anderen by Julia Wissert


Artistic Lead: Susanne Scheffler

Above all, theatre should be fun at school! We provide you with ideas and experience for modern directing and appreciative staging. We approach a play through performance and expression exercises. Theatre pedagogical considerations and methods such as the development of a good working energy, the maintenance of play tension and a good time management support you in your work with children and young people.

We offer this workshop twice during the season:
Either on 23 November 2018 from 17:00 - 21:00 and on 24 November 2018 from 10:00 - 15:00
Or on 1 February 2019 from 17:00 - 21:00 and on 2 February 2019 from 10:00 - 15:00

Artistic Lead: Jana Eiting und Cathrin Rose

Diversity, Political Correctness, Critical Whiteness, Gender, Inclusion: many new terms and concepts, the only thing missing is the time to think about them and really understand them. However, society with its values and norms is constantly changing, and one has to keep it rolling in order not to stick to old thought patterns. Teachers, in particular, have a responsible role in providing young people with up-to-date knowledge at their schools. In this workshop we want to find the time to ask questions, look at the history and theories of concepts, discuss them and practice applying them.

On 17 May 2019 from 17:00 - 20:00 and on 18 May 2019 from 10:00 - 14:00 in the rooms of the Zukunftsakademie, Humboldtstraße 40, 44787 Bochum, Germany

Registration for the workshops via E jungesschauspielhaus [​at​] schauspielhausbochum.de

The number of participants is limited. Costs: 60 €

Schauspielhaus-Schools (ehemals SPOT)


These three schools are Schauspielhaus schools. They have a special meaning for the Schauspielhaus and vice versa. In the coming season, each student will attend a play as a class. Each visit to the theatre will be accompanied by a theatre pedagogical accompaniment appropriate to the play and the age group. This includes guided tours through the theatre, conversations with actresses/actors and directors or theatre pedagogical workshops.

The project is long-term, so that over the years the students of these schools have seen a large repertoire of plays and will have come closer to the theatre of their city and the people who work there than many other theatregoers. The theatre profits from the close exchange with the children and young people and learns what interests them, what they like and dislike and what the citizens of the future want from the theatre.

If you would like an insight into the possibilities and challenges of this project, please contact the Junges Schauspielhaus.
