Once a year, the Starke Stücke Festival shows outstanding international theater productions for young audiences in the Rhine-Main region. Between 80 and 90 performances for all age groups take place at around 30 locations. Starke Stücke started back in the year 1994 and continues to be a central event for families, schools and kindergardens from all over the RhineMain region..
As part of the fringe programme on theater-related education, around 100 workshops are held for school classes and groups of children during the festival period. The workshops investigate enjoyment of the performances and provide access to the performing arts.
The festival is financed by a network of municipal and private organizers who support and encourage quality children’s and youth theater and cultural education in the region under the umbrella of KulturRegion FrankfurtRheinMain.
