The Sandkorn Theatre

The Sandkorn Theatre, which literally translates as Sand Grain Theatre, is a professional private playhouse in Karlsruhe. Its programme includes a broad spectrum of shows from children’s and youth theatre, acting, musical theatre and cabaret.

The Sandkorn: Theatre and meeting place for people of all ages

The Sandkorn Theatre offers modern and classical theatre for all generations, comedy and cabaret as well as children’s and youth theatre. The theatre even offers special performances related to current topics for school classes.

There are two stages at the theatre:

  • The smaller studio theatre featuring a bar and comfortable bistro tables with cosy candlelight for a cabaret or comedy evening.
  • The larger factory theatre is accessible for disabled guests and offers a nostalgic factory atmosphere. Larger productions can be staged here, for example contemporary and classical theatre pieces, or productions for youth theatre.
