Piraten, Piraten (DAS WEITE THEATER)
The pirate child Molly got lost in a storm – now she is all alone. Following her heart, Molly moves off to the pirate capital of the Caribbean to sign on to a pirate ship. Girls are banned on board according to a pirate rule. Things get turbulent and stormy… and Molly jumps right into adventures with wonderfully wild twists and a lot of music on the high seas.

For 25 years, Weites Theater for puppets and humans has been representing a professional and large variety of puppet theater both at home and abroad. With its charming venue, Weites Theater, we offer young and old audiences alike the opportunity of attending high quality theatrical performances.
The theater is dedicated to integrating different forms of the performing arts. In addition to traditional forms of puppet theater, the performances often incorporate several different techniques. Live music also plays a vital role in many of the productions. This means that our productions follow unconventional routes to carrying out daring experiments: puppet theater may be our home, but it is not our only abode: our spectrum is, like our name, Weit, or broad. In determine genre, the definitive question is how a story can be best conveyed. Our schedule of programming is enhanced with guest performances from groups and theaters within the independent performing arts community, especially those of our partner Theater des Lachens (Frankfurt/Oder). Our company has performed in many theaters all over Germany as well as at festivals abroad.
