Chawwerusch is the professional theatre collective of the Southern Palatinate with its own venue. Inspired by unusual themes and locations, the Chawwerusch Theater produces large-scale projects of a high artistic standard across generations. Researched regional history and stories are always important components of their productions - for example the summer play → " One night in August - A French-German liaison", which addresses the student demonstration of the 6th of August 1950 at St. Germanshof. The ensemble shows the whole spectrum that theatre has to offer. The stage is tragic, comical and hearty.
