Lights, Curtain, Action! Are you ready to take part in the building of a theater set?

In this camp, you will help with the set construction for the Open-Air Theatre Heidenheim. During 2024, 2 plays will be performed here: 'Annie' – a red-haired orphan finds a new home with a wealthy businessman, under the care of his assistant, in her search to reunite with her biological parents - and 'Der Räuber Hotzenplotz' – the tale of Kasperl and Seppel, striving to capture the cunning robber Hotzenplotz to retrieve Grandma's stolen coffee grinder. The stage and set needs to be renewed accordingly: In the end, the scenery is supposed to look like New York and a small german village at the same time – a very interesting and challenging task! You will screw, nail, and paint. Smaller props will need to be built, too.

Apart from that, your work will also entail:
• Installing a wooden floor in the prop garage.
• Renewing the cover of the small wooden shelf storage.
• Restoring the seats in the “Klausen” garden.
• Cleaning stones around the cold storage with a pressure washer, possibly renewing or filling with gravel.
• Painting walls and repair cracks in the pavilion.

...and some other tasks as needed! Be prepared to always lend a helping hand.

There will be a professional stage builder who helps you with all tasks. For sure it is helpful though, if you have a bit of experience in manual/constructional work and have used tools like cordless screwdrivers before.

You will be accommodated directly on the project side: Next to the stage, there is building for administration, a workshop, a café …

Here you will have one big room for yourselves, showers, and a kitchen. Be aware that there is only one big room for sleeping available to all volunteers – no separation possible!

Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking, washing the dishes and cleaning the accommodation. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage all volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable dishes.

Heidenheim an der Brenz is a town with a bit less than 50,000 inhabitants in the southern region of Baden-Württemberg. The area is rather rural with a beautiful countryside: since it is at the end of the Swabian Albs – a mountain range of about 220km - there are many hills and forests.

Also in the town you will find the Hellenstein Castle, first built on the 12th century, and wildlife park with around 100 animals, very close to your project. If you would like to visit a larger town, you may go to Ulm which is only 30km away. Stuttgart and Munich are about 2 hours by train.

Your host is the Open-Air Theatre Heidenheim, the 2nd largest one of its kind in Southern Germany. It is situated on the “castle hill” of the town of Heidenheim an der Brenz, surrounded by forests, and can accommodate up to 1,100 spectators.

The Open-Air Theatre is run by a non-profit association and they are very excited about hosting again a group of international volunteers. This project is perfect for everyone who is interested in theatres and wants to have a look behind the scenes! Have a look at the theatre here: http://www.naturtheater.de

The association was first founded by Gustav Müller over 100 years ago, after the first World War, in his quest of dedicating his life to something that would unite people: art. In 1919 not only did Müller materialize this idea, but also managed to host several productions at the concert stage.

Nowadays, with over 500 members of all ages, the 'Naturtheater Heidenheim' association is one of the most popular organizations in the city of Heidenheim and its surrounding area.

Please be aware that ticks can be an issue when you spend a lot of time outdoors in natural areas in Germany - like in this camp. In our General Infosheet you will find suggestions on how you can protect yourself against them. You are also welcome to check whether a vaccination against the tick-borne disease TBE makes sense and is possible in your home country.

Het inschrijfgeld voor dit project bedraagt € 345, exclusief € 50 korting voor studenten en jongeren onder de 18.
