German theater

Since 2001, Middlebury’s German Department has had a standing and very successful German Theater Group. Between 2002 and 2010, it  won Mt. Holyoke College's German Theater Competition six times! Founded and directed by Prof. Bettina Matthias, this group stages one or two full-length plays in German each year. Previous productions include Anatols Größenwahn (A. Schnitzler), Reigen (A. Schnitzler), Die Physiker and Romulus der Große (F. Dürrenmatt), Zieh den Stecker raus, das Wasser kocht (E. Kishon) as well as Urfaust (W. Goethe) and Die Dreigroschenoper (B. Brecht/ K. Weill). The spring, 2010, production was  Der grüne Kakadu (A. Schnitzler.) and in spring 2011, the group delighted audiences with another Kishon comedy, Der Trauschein.
