"The stage of dreams has aroused dreams." Biennale project manager Markus Nau says in reference to the Biennale musical 2017. The dreams even resulted in a real birth. The musical team has formed a new ensemble, the "Junge Bühne". The troupe presents itself for the first time on 29 June in the Theaterkeller with a musical production.

When, after ten performances, the curtain fell for the very last time for the youth pop musical "Stage of Dreams" in the Klosterseehalle in mid-July 2017, all of the approximately 60 participants were flattened. But after less than a week, the musical actors director Siegfried Barth already pressed with the question: What now? "The motivation was to continue this," says Barth to the desires that had been awakened by the elaborate youth musical production.

For him, Ingo Sika and other Biennale Strippenzieher had been clear: The offspring, which had been won by the musical for the local cultural scene, wanted to keep that. "I think it is extremely important to develop visions of how to proceed. At some point, people will need followers, "says Ingo Sika, not only with regard to future biennials, but the local culture as a whole.

However, if you want to prevent the offspring from disappearing into the world after finishing school and say goodbye to Sindelfingen, you have to offer something to the youth here. This binding force is now to produce the "young stage", the term "ensemble" is actually too narrow. The "Young Stage" should also be an activity field for the young, who wants to try to direct, for stage design, music, video or technology interested, actually all areas that are to cover the genre speech and music theater, explain Ingo Sika and Siegfried Barth.

The "Young Stage" is anchored in very young and long-established cultural structures in Sindelfingen. Officially, it operates as a division of the Association Biennale Co., explains the club chairman Marc Hugger. The association is responsible for biennial communication and marketing of the cultural festival. Siegfried Barth will use part of his working time as a city media and culture officer for the "Junge Bühne", explains SMTT boss Markus Nau. The SMTT, in turn, cooperates with the "Young Stage", as the new SMTT theater teachers Anna-Lena Just and Michael Schneider support the "Junge Bühne" as coaches.

Last but not least, the Cultural Office has pushed the "Young Stage" vigorously: the annual urban theater production takes over in 2018 the "Young Stage" with the musical "Next to Normal" with twelve performances in the theater cellar. With Katrin von Hochmeister, Christian Fenske, Nils Weber, Vivianne Küting, Florian Penkwitt and Stefan Sieber, all actors except Janne Rochowicz are former actors of "Stage of Dreams". The premiere is on June 29, and the last of twelve performances will be on July 21, directed by Ingo Sika. The seven-piece band is led by Jonas Stephan.

"What sets us apart explicitly from the existing theater ensembles is that we do not just appeal to actors," says Ingo Sika on the concept of the "boys' stage", which wants to be active both in the field of speech and music theater in future and beyond pure stage activity Interested to address. At the end of the year, Ingo Sika is already watching the performance of the eight reindeer monologues by Jeff Goode. In which should direct young at each try a monologue. Siegfried Barth will support the "Young Stage" for his student theater workshop at the end of the big holidays in the SMTT.

Even though the Biennale may be considered the birthplace of the "Junge Bühne" and participation in the Kulturfestival, Markus Nau makes it very clear: The "Junge Bühne" is not a festival formation founded to record or present any future biennial to break. "We are not building a biennial ensemble," says Nau. The Biennale Board of Trustees, which held its first non-public meeting on February 22, will not give any guidance. In addition, no musical was set for future biennials, but provided for a change of business. No "Erbhof" will be set up with the "boys stage", adds Ingo Sika, himself a member of the Biennale Board of Trustees.

November 2018 – „Die Acht – Die Rentiermonologe“ von Jeff Goode Das etwas andere Weihnachtsstück. Hast du keine Lust auf Weihnachtslieder und Christstollen, dann ist das genau das richtige Theaterstück! Acht Rentiere sprechen über Ihren Chef: Santa Clause. Stimmen die Gerüchte über Ihn und seine Elfen? Was ist mit Rudolphs kleinem Geheimnis? Was ist dran an Vixens Geschichte, die an die Presse durchsickerte? Ja, die Rentiere packen aus…und glaubt mir…sie halten sich nicht zurück. Ein Weihnachtsstück für Erwachsene! Inszeniert von Nachwuchsregisseuren der „Jungen Bühne Sindelfingen“ unter der Leitung von Ingo Sika.


Die Junge Bühne Sindelfingen präsentiert ihre zweite Produktion: In "Die Acht: Rentiermonologe" erzählen Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner und Blitzen ihre Geschichte - besser gesagt ihre Version davon, was am Nordpol passiert ist.

Ein Skandal sickerte an die Presse durch und die acht Rentiere vom Weihnachtsmann müssen Stellung beziehen. Auf abwechselnd unterhaltsame oder ernsthafte, stellenweise auch durchaus provokante Weise schildern sie, was sie dazu zu sagen haben.

Ist der Weihnachtsmann wirklich so ein guter Mann, wie er die Welt glauben macht? Was ist dran an den Gerüchten über Rudolph - und Vixen?

Findet es heraus bei der dritten Aufführung von "Die Acht: Rentiermonologe" am 30. November im Stiftsgymnasium Sindelfingen!

Es spielen: Leonard Hartenstein, Nils Weber, Dani Fix, Cristiana Anghel, Philipp Maurer, Miriam Kößler, Janne Rochowicz und Maike Meyer

Regie: Ferdi Stöckel, Maike Meyer, Ingo Sika, Nils Weber, Dani Fix, Nina Schellwies, Leonie Rothacker und Katrin von Hochmeister

Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa’s eight tiny reindeer accuses him of sexual harassment. As mass media descends upon the event, the other members of the sleigh team demand to share their perspectives, and a horrific tale of corruption and perversion emerges, which seems to implicate everyone from the littlest elf to the tainted Saint himself. With each deer’s confession, the truth behind the shocking allegations becomes clearer and clearer... and murkier and murkier.

Christmas is nearly here... but things are not what they should be amongst the team that pulls Santa's sleigh. The rumour mill is in overdrive.

Grigware Reviews: RECOMMENDED
Stage Scene LA: WOW

Make no mistake about it, these reindeer games from Crown City Theatre Company are definitely for adults only. This dark-as-coal Christmas comedy finds the North Pole a hotbed of scandal after one of Santa's eight tiny reindeer accuses him of jolly old sexual harassment. As the media catches the scent of scandal and invades Santa's innermost sanctuary, the rest of the reindeer chime in with their own perspectives. The result is a heinous, hilarious -- and timely -- tale of perversion and corruption, entangling everyone from the littlest elf in the workshop to Saint Nick himself in a sordid web of lust, lies and legends.

Rated M for mature.
Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa's eight tiny reindeer accuses him of sexual harassment. As mass media descends upon the event, the other members of the sleigh team demand to share their perspectives, and a horrific tale of corruption and perversion emerges, which seems to implicate everyone from the littlest elf to the tainted Saint himself.

With each deer's confession, the truth behind the shocking allegations becomes clearer and clearer. ...and murkier and murkier.

Join us for this alternative Christmas show that is incredibly topical and will send you home talking about it.

THE EIGHT: Reindeer Monologues

directed by Andrew Benevenuti

starring: Josh Bowen, Sarah Spring, Jason Garton, Sara Laursen, Cameron A. Tubbs, Rasik Ohal, Jason Michael Dick, Molly Megan Maynard


Santa's coming... "You'd better watch out"! Scandal at the North Pole! accusations, rumors, and all-out attacks are (still) flying fast and furious around the toy shop. Santa himself has been accused of sexual misconduct, and those that know him best have been interviewed to give their account of events. Hear about what happened directly from the horse's - or rather, Reindeers mouth! To put it mildly, the production is a stark alternative to A Christmas Carol and The Nutcracker. It offers up hilarious commentary on workplace harassment, gender politics, and the magic of Christmas. WARNING!! This show contains alarming content (though we won't ruin any surprises by giving away the specifics). FOUL-MOUTHED REINDEER and VERY inappropriate ADULT HUMOR! Definitely no kids or anyone who doesn't want to see the dark side of Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and the North Pole!

What happens when a light shines bright in the dark corners of an institution of happiness and joy? What happens to the one holding the flashlight? Is Vixen's story true? Could he really have done such a thing? What happened to Rudolph? The Eight is a wickedly dark comedy where Santa's reindeer tell you exactly what they are thinking. The rumors are spreading, the lines are drawn and the world needs to decide where they stand.

***TRIGGER WARNING This show contains fictional retellings of the after math of sexual assault and/or violence which may be triggering to survivors.
