After an enduring period of waiting, of defiant planning and stubborn convincing the reconstruction has been given the green light form all the participating parties. In September 2003 the reconstruction began with a ground-breaking ceremony. Due to the precise preorganisation and no big “surprises” throughout the period of reconstruction the interior work didn’t take longer than 12 months.
It can be indicated from many subtleties that the theatre house focuses on children and teenagers: There is the children’s foyer on the ground floor. Up to 150 children can take a seat on wooden furniture suitable for children before and after the performances, e.g. to have their breakfast together. It is also a perfect place to prepare the children for a play or to talk more extensively about performances afterwards. The furnishings have been made by a group of retired manual workers, created and built specially for the theatre. The complete furniture (even the cloak hooks and the counter) have been built in three different heights so that even three year old children are able to move independently, to hang up their jackets and to buy a ticket on their own. On the first floor there is another atmospherical room for workshops, rehearsals and also discussions.
With a three day theatre ceremony from September 10th to 12th 2004 the house was officially opened.
