1979 Frankfurt’s first English-language theatre is founded in Sachsenhausen by Kevin Oakes from South Africa and Jon Johnson, Mary Jackson and Ken Elrod from the United States. Kevin Oakes becomes the theatre’s artistic director. The ensemble is called “cardboard clowns.

1980 Judith Rosenbauer joins the ensemble as an actress and later on becomes its managing director. Shortly thereafter the ensemble disbands. Judith Rosenbauer, Darryl Lockwood and Keith LeFevre continue its activities under the name “Café Theater.”

1981 The theatre moves from Sachsenhausen into a larger space in the Hamburger Allee and is now called “English Theater Frankfurt, Café Theater.”

1990 Thanks to its growing popularity under Judith Rosenbauer’s direction, the theatre again relocates and is now housed in a 230-seat facility in Frankfurt’s famous Kaiserstraße.

2001 The Kaiserstrasse is now too small for the English Theatre’s growing programme. Thanks to Judith Rosenbauer’s initiative and Dr. von Harbou’s far-sighted vision, the Dresdner Bank agrees to include a playhouse in its new Galileo skyscraper.

Unfortunately, as a result of economic difficulties, the “English Theater e.V.” must close its doors. Judith Rosenbauer terminates her involvement with the English Theatre.

2002 To keep the tradition of English-language theatre in Frankfurt alive, The English Theatre, a limited charity, is founded. Daniel John Nicolai becomes artistic and executive director of the new organization, which begins co-producing with other theatres in Vienna, Los Angeles and New Jersey.

2003 The English Theatre GmbH moves into its new, state-of-the-art, 300-seat home, sponsored by the Dresdner Bank. The theatre is now the largest English-language theatre on the European continent.
