This unique festival will give you the chance to enjoy a wide variety of stimulating and entertaining plays and to support the vibrant young talent active in Luxembourg.
In 2018, 10 school groups and classes from around Luxembourg, comprising over 100 students, presented a collection of stimulating English plays, performing to an audience of more than thousand spectators. Following this succes, the event will take place for a second time in 2020.
The Festival of one-act plays will highlight some of the excellent English-speaking artistic talent which exists among pupils in schools in Luxembourg, but which often passes unnoticed by the wider public.
With English becoming more and more important as the language of communication and business in the modern world, the need for children to use it actively has become a crucial life- skill. Several schools around the Grand-Duchy have in recent years augmented their normal English classes with English theatre options or extracurricular activities. These options give the students a chance not only to improve their language abilities by using it practically on the stage, but also to develop their presentational skills and their self-confidence while learning about theatre arts.
