Theater Waidspeicher e. V.

Theater Waidspeicher e.V. is a professional ensemble puppet theatre founded in 1979. Since 1993 it has been run as a non-profit organization granted by the Federal State of Thuringia and the City of Erfurt. Since 1986, the theatre has had its home in the heart of Erfurt's medieval city centre in a renovated woad warehouse, an exceptionally attractive location that accommodates 142 guests.

More than 25.000 people come each year to the 300 performances, to be enchanted by the variety of puppets and performing techniques: glove puppets, marionettes, directly manipulated table puppets and quadrupeds, flat figures and shadow theatre.

The majority of productions are aimed at children and young people, however the evening performances for adult audiences are also very popular. Evidence of the positive resonance of the audience is reflected in the numerous national and international guest performances. The ensemble has toured throughout 121 places in Germany, in 21 European countries, as well as in the U.S.A., Canada, Mexico, Taiwan, Israel, India, Siberia and Turkey. Theater Waidspeicher ist the host of the biennial International Puppet Theatre Festival Synergura. Theatre director since 2009 is Sibylle Tröster.
