"Corona" Update

Dear Guests and Friends of the English Theatre of Hamburg. 

In view of the critical situation now confronting all of us because of the COVID-19 pandemic and in solidarity with our community, we have decided to close our theatre for an initial period until the 30th June. We are hoping and (at this time) planning to reopen our doors in August with special guest performances. We are also planning to start our new Season 2020/2021 as usual on 3 September. But this will depend on the further development of the situation. Please watch our website for additional information and announcements.

Tickets you have purchased for performances during this period may be exchanged  for vouchers. Please contact us by E-mail at eth-bo@englishtheatre.de for details.

While this decision was essential to avoid any risks to the health of our costumers, staff and actors, it does, of course, represent a terrible blow to our financial situation. We would be extremely grateful for any help that our audiences and supporters might be able to give. If it is at all possible for you, please consider donating the cost of your purchased tickets and refrain from requesting a refund. You can be assured of our gratitude.


We look forward to welcoming you back to our theatre as soon as possible; in the meantime, please stay healthy!
