About the Center

Theater and Dance

Performances of our own group of excellent volunteer actors and of groups from various English-speaking countries such as the United States, Canada, the UK, Australia, India and South Africa.

 

Workshops and Summer School

Daily, weekly and seasonal workshops and seminars designed especially for school groups, pensioners and other interested individuals.

 

Community Theater

The Center will follow the American concept of "community theater".  Here volunteers can not only spend their leisure time as an actor, technician or stage designer, they can also develop these skills further or gain the first experience with such skills.



Initially, the Center will be run by Keith D. Greenleaf. He is a co-founder of the Wiesbaden English Language Theater (WELT) and he originally comes from Michigan. He has lived in Germany for over 30 years and first performed on-stage at the Frankfurt Playhouse, playing Commander Harbison in South Pacific (1994-95). Over the years since then, he has acted in and directed nearly fifty theater and film productions including his Topper-Award winning performance as the Count in Fools (1999) and acting award for his role in Ferris Wheel (2003). He was also nominated for his performance as Vinnie in Odd Couple (2006) and as Best Director for A Little Murder Never Hurt Anybody (2010) and Incorruptible (2011).

 

He has attended the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) Summer School in the UK each year since 2010 and the summer Modern Acting course at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in 2014. He has trained under Frederik Malsy from the improv group called Für Garderobe keine Haftung in Wiesbaden. He has also worked with the Education Team of the English Theatre Frankfurt.
