Founded in September 2011, The Lucerne World Theatre Company (LWTC) is an amateur English-language theatre group that thrives on a passion for drama and the performance arts. Built on the principles of fun and inclusion, the club offers a gateway to the stage to its members who hail from all corners of the globe.
LWTC offers its members acting classes as well as opportunities to get involved in stage productions. To date, LWTC has staged numerous diverse shows including Bollywood Brides, an Indian-inspired musical extravaganza, Under the Sea and It’s on you, John, for which LWTC won the 2014 Grand Duchy Award for best stage presentation at the FEATS theatre festival in Luxembourg.
The aim of the Lucerne World Theatre Company is:
- To offer continuous theatre training for amateur actors through weekly meetings and special themed workshops as well as play readings.
- To set up our own amateur theatre group and put on our own theatre productions.
- To offer the chance for people in the Lucerne area to see smaller theatre productions from all over the world.
What’s the concept?
- We believe that acting is a craft that benefits from being continuously improved. We work on learning and improving our theater skills through games and play readings in a safe and friendly environment.
Who are we?
- Our members are from all over the world and are united by a love for theater, some have been on a stage before, others have only seen a stage from afar.
What do we do?
- Our meetings are usually divided into two parts. During the first part we explore the craft of acting through a series of fun games and exercises, during the second half we either do play readings or work on a theatre scene.
When do we meet?
- Our weekly Tuesday meetings take place 19.30 – 21.30 at the LiLi Centre, Alpenquai 40a, 6005 Lucerne.
