English Theatre Company

The English Theatre Company of the Lyceum Alpinum had its premiere in 2012 with a production of “Lord of the Flies”. Ivo Bärtsch, Head of Drama, is the group’s director. He is the successor to Selina Gasser who directed the company for three years. While the Shakespeare Company is more for the German-speaking students, the English Theatre Company offers the opportunity for students in the international department to discover the art of stage-acting and to take on the challenge of approaching some of the great classics of English literature. The actors get the unique chance to explore world-famous characters such as the outsider Piggy or the dominating Jack, and to make them come alive in their personal interpretation.
