Foyer Meeting

Members of our association and theater fans meet regularly in the upper foyer of the theater on a Saturday or Sunday at 11 a.m. for an entertaining conversation with interesting personalities. Most of the time, the theater will be the theme.

Anette Gerhard was our guest at the Foyertreff on April 6th, 2024

Anette Gerhard, a well-known face to eager theatergoers, has been at the Stralsund Theater since 1998 and chatted with theater enthusiasts about her time as a singer and stage manager.

Ms. Gerhard had studied singing in Berlin and got her first engagement as a soprano at the Freiberg Theater. She then moved to the Stralsund Theater to delight audiences as a soprano. She ended this career for personal reasons. She then took on the role of stage manager and managed the fortunes of the performances backstage. Obviously a very strenuous job, because today Ms. Gerhard takes care of the organizational processes at the theater in Stralsund.

The insights that the audience at the foyer meeting got behind the scenes of a theater from the perspective of an artist were extremely interesting.  Anyone who saw Ms. Gerhard on stage would definitely not have suspected these experiences, nor would the answer to the question, “From today's perspective, would you choose the career path you did again?”

It was an exciting event with many unexpected insights for the audience.
The club chairwoman Kerstin Kassner took over the moderation.

Visitors to the foyer meeting in the Putbus Theater were able to gain deep insights into their working world in a conversation with Katja Pfeifer, music dramaturg at the Vorpommern Theater.

The look behind the scenes clarified the processes involved in creating a production, starting with the development of the schedule, through concept development, rehearsals and the finished production. Most guests were amazed at the variety of tasks that have to be solved before each premiere and learned a lot of interesting facts from the world of music dramaturgy.

Review: Second foyer meeting with Reinhard Piechocki 16.04.2023

That was the Second foyer meeting with Reinhard Piechocki on April 16, 2023

Reinhard Piechocki was interviewed by Marion Saße from the Putbus Theatre Friends' Association. The listeners were able to learn a lot of interesting and worth knowing things from his life.
Reinhard Piechocki lives in Kasnevitz and worked as a scientist on the island of Vilm until he retired. His love of art and culture gives him interesting pastimes.
He started playing the piano at the age of eight. And working with this instrument during the corona pandemic gave him the idea of organizing concerts at the Putbus Theater.

Now there are two successful concert series, the "Chopiniade" and the Piano Summer with young pianists
