2019 May 16 – May 19

Esslingen, GERMANY

First European Festival of  

Senior Theatre stAGE!



Incoming European Festival of Senior Citizen´s amateur theatre “stAGE!”, from May 16th to 19th 2019, has released its call for proposals (German & English & French & Spanish versions are available). It will take place in Esslingen (south of Germany).


"stAGE!" is an Senior Citizen´s amateur theatre festival which likes to show different artistic and topical scopes of senior citizen’s theatre in Europe, in order to discuss social relevance and create an European network.

Apart from the performances as the basic element of the festival, we would like to establish a second element, which will enrich the event: a scientific contribution with discussion offerings.

The third element will be workshops and encounters in the city, which will hence offer an active component for the participants and visitors.


We call for Senior Citizen´s and intergenerational amateur companies from Europe (up to 10 persons).


Application for this event has been closed.


Feel free to contact us by e-mail for any further information.



We hope to welcome you during the festival in 2019!
