Their composer-lyricist believed in trying to make people hum on the way out of theatre with big smiles splashed across their faces.

“Scrooge? I have to redeem old Scrooge? The one man I knew who was worse than I was? Impossible!”



So begins the real story behind Dickens’ A Christmas Carol - the story of Marley’s heroic behind-the-scenes efforts to save old Scrooge’s soul - and in the process, save his own. Aided by a Bogle, a malicious little hell-sprite with an agenda of his own, their hilarious journey takes them from the jaws of death to the gates of Hell - and beyond! Four actors tell this irreverent, funny, and ultimately, deeply moving story with warmth and infectious zest.

XANADU JR. follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California, on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first Roller Disco. (Hey, it's 1980!) But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and chaos abounds.

Rebecca Hershkowitz and her young son arrive on the shores of America in 1910 in search of a better life. What they find is a country that might not be the promised land they expected. Nevertheless, opportunities abound, and a community of immigrants comes together as they look towards a new future on the horizon.

Theater season is coming soon! And hopefully it really will be a full season this year. In support of the theater and as a way to kick off the new season, Friends of the STC will be having a preseason day at the theater on Saturday, 14 August.

Where: Stuttgart Theatre Center, Kelley Barracks

When: 14 August 2021
1000 – Cleaning and readying the theater for the new season
1200 – Pizza!

Starting at 10am, all are welcome to help out with readying the theater for the upcoming season. We will be cleaning and vacuuming the lobby and seating area, and just generally tidying the place up.

Free Pizza! Around noon pizza will be provided for anyone who wants some, but please RSVP so we have a rough idea on how much we need to pick up. Please bring your own drinks, and if you want to bring something to share you are more than welcome, but if you just want to bring yourself that’s great too!

Around 2pm we will have our first general Friends of the STC meeting in nearly a year! We have lots to talk about and plenty of exciting things coming up, so we would love to see any and all who want to come. Plus we just miss you all, it’s been so long!

We all are busy doing our various summer things, so we understand not all can make it. But if you can, please let us know you will be able to attend by emailing [email protected] by Thursday, 12 August. This is especially important if you will be able to join us for PIZZA! Hope to see you there!

Thanks for your continued support!

Friends of the Stuttgart Theatre Center

Our story began when IMCOM made the decision to shutdown all the theaters in Europe. We were told in the Summer of 2016 that all productions were on hold indefinitely. It was then that a group of volunteers decided to meet and discuss the way ahead. The passion these volunteers had, and continue to have, for theater and, more specifically, for the Stuttgart Theatre Center (STC) drove them to figure out a way to keep theater alive for the USAG Stuttgart community. These volunteers were tireless in their efforts to save the STC or, if that failed, to determine an alternative way to keep on providing live theatrical entertainment for the USAG Stuttgart community.

In late Summer of 2016, word came down that the STC could go ahead and produce their first show for the 2016-2017 season. Then, a couple months later, funding was secured to ensure the entire 2016-2017 season would be saved. Today, the theater exists season-to-season never knowing what the future will bring. Theater, and the arts more generally, seem to be under attack around the country, and nowhere is that felt more keenly than at the STC.

2018 brought with it more promise and hope for the future of the STC than had been experienced the previous two years; however, the future, ever in doubt, drove the STC volunteers to finish what was started in 2016: create a private organization to support the STC. The Friends of the Stuttgart Theatre Center was born. While the paperwork to create the private organization has only just recently been submitted to the Garrison Commander, the volunteer base is strong and ready to move forward in helping make the STC better and stronger than ever!

The Friends of the Stuttgart Theatre Center’s mission can be summed up simply by saying that we exist to support the STC and to create more opportunities for people of all ages to enjoy and participate in live theater. We will promote and otherwise support STC shows and we will also host our own events geared at filling any theatrical gaps here in Stuttgart, Germany.
