Cast Change Announcement

Dear Guests,

We really hope that we will be able to reopen out theatre this spring with the smash hit Shirley Valentine by Willy Russell. Due to the long closure, Helen Sheals, our original actress for the part, is back in England and unable to return to us due to other commitments. Instead, we are very happy to announce that the wonderful actress Sharon Facinelli will be taking over the role and is currently in virtual rehearsals with our director Paul Glaser.

The SZENE Hamburg Magazine recently published a great interview with Helen Sheals, which you can read in the March issue of the magazine.

There is still a chance to see the great performance Helen Sheals gave in the role of Shirley, since we are offering 4 further streaming dates of that performance. The dates for those streams are 12.03., 19.03. and 26.03.21 at 19:30.

We hope you are healthy and well and hope to welcome you very soon in our theatre!


your ETH Team
