A new theatre company has arrived in Berlin. The Berlin English Repertory Theatre (BERT) will make its debut on December 1st with a staging of the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol.
Erman Jones, Producing Artistic Director and actor says BERT will fill a major gap in Berlin’s theatre scene. “There’s not a lot of opportunity in Berlin to see classic, English theatre in its native tongue, done by professional actors.”
Children and carol singers round out the large cast of this “traditional” staging of the beloved Christmas show. BERT’s interpretation, however, won’t be without its own unique nuances. Monika Müller-Kroll finds out more about the production, as well as the theatre company’s plans for the new year.
