The First Stage is an off-roadway stage in Hamburg-Altona, which offers a varied programme away from the mainstream with top-class productions. Originally used as a cinema until the seventies, it was misused for many years, including as a photo studio and supermarket.
In March 2016, the curtain finally opened again for his audience in the hall, which had been completely renovated without subsidies, making it one of Hamburg's youngest private theatres.
Latest technology and fair prices on 279 seats
The repertoire includes famous musical classics, as well as large ensemble revues and concerts at fair prices. From the 279 seats, a good view is guaranteed thanks to rising parquet flooring - and the latest technology ensures that the productions find ideal conditions on the 160 m² stage.
A drink during the break and after the performance? No problem!
A cosy bar with a dedicated gastronomic team rounds off your stay. The theatre is a spin-off of the renowned Stage School Hamburg and is within walking distance of Altona railway station and the Königstraße and Reeperbahn S-Bahn stations.
