The theater opens its doors

A visit to the theater is a very special experience. But not only the classic educational burger is invited, but also schoolchildren are welcome – at least in mabbach. For this reason, the frankisches theater mabbach has also launched the project "partner school of the frankisches theater schloss mabbach" started. The ignaz-reder-realschule mellrichstadt was chosen as the partner school.
The director of the theater, anne maar, describes the goal of the project: "we want to establish a close connection between school and theater over the course of the entire school year"." On the one hand, the theater should be presented, but not only that. "We want to show that a theater consists of more than just actors. We also offer a wide range of craft professions that one would not immediately associate with the theater", says the theater pedagogue mahela wiedner. Of course, rehearsals and performances were also attended in the course of the project, but in the subsequent conversation with the actors, one could learn much more about theater than just by attending a play.
The students will also be challenged in other areas. "During the project they should visit the individual departments and at the end give a self-prepared guided tour, where the individual areas of the theater are then presented to the fellow students", is the idea of theater pedagogue. At the same time, for the students of the 8. And 9. The project offers practical courses for the classes, which show that a theater does not only consist of actors. "The professions of stage designer, costume designer, carpenter and also dramaturge – all these are important for a theater and can be learned", saysanne maar.
The people who work in the theater also visit the schools. For example, the project organizers have the idea of having a stage designer come into the classroom. He will show how a model stage set is built – and the students will then be asked to put it into practice. This also benefits the theater AG of the secondary school, which needs a stage set for its performance anyway. "The model stage image is then used for the school performance", julia waldner, who is responsible for the theater group with a lot of heart and soul, is very pleased. She herself acted in the theater during her school years at the gymnasium in munnerstadt and is enthusiastic about the subject. "Of course, all grades should attend a performance as part of the project," says anne maar, she says. According to the age group, there is a rough selection in mabbach.
"We are happy to have entered into such a cooperation with the theater in mabbach", the headmaster of the secondary school, ulrich kluge, is also pleased. In this way, the secondary school is also able to convey cultural knowledge. And this is also what they want to show: "we have more high school classes coming to the performances than middle school classes". We want to show that the theater is there for everyone", mahela wiedner summarizes the concern of the frankisches theater schloss mabbach. And, of course, there are numerous jobs in the theater that require dexterity and manual skills. "We are definitely looking forward to the project", says anne maar.
