In the upcoming semester, we will stage Shakespeare’s MACBETH! Come and join the production!

A shadowy force makes an enticing promise. A tyrant shatters the order of kings. Who could resist when opportunity beckons you to the throne? Who will prevail in the chaos of violence, power lust and doubt?

Director: Jasper Koch

People of all genders, ethnicities, abilities, and ages are welcome to audition for all roles. You don’t need to prepare anything.

There are many ways to partake other than acting on the stage! We’re also looking for motivated people in these departments: costume & make-up, stage building, production, public relations & marketing, sound & light, photo & video, props and stage management, assistant directing, program (UP News) and music. We are also always looking for people who can help with prompting at the shows, sell tickets, drinks and snacks, which is a great way of getting to know the UPs!
If you’re interested in any of these departments, you can also drop by at one of the audition dates or simply contact us by email.


Since AS YOU WANT IT, both University Players members and audience are longing for more improv in their life. So here we go: We are kicking off the „UPlay“ drop-in improv sessions on 17 October 2023, 8-10pm, in Hörsaal ESA W 221. The workshop takes place every every first and third Tuesday of every month. You can drop in spontaneously but we appreciate a prior registration so we get an idea of how many people are interested, so please email to Thanks!

Currently, the UP Improv branch is organized by a  four person committee. They plan the workshops and facilitate them on a rotational basis. The committee is open. If you’re interested in doing improv, gaining experience in improv/theater pedagogy, and developing an improv community, this is your space. It is by no means obligatory to ever go on stage with your new craft. However, we are looking forward to developing show forms and setting up low-threshold performance opportunities for those who do want to go public. Write us at if you feel, this might be for you.

On that note: Tickets for the AS YOU WANT IT shows at the Motte (27th and 28th October) are already being sold. Join us for one of the nights and get to meet some of the committee, who are also part of the AS YOU WANT IT ensemble. Please by your ticket online.
