Die Helmut Förnbacher Theater Company

The Helmut Förnbacher Theater Company is one of the oldest, non-subsidised theatre troupes in Switzerland.

This ensemble owes its name to the actor and director Helmut Förnbacher, who founded it in 1980 in Basel’s Elisabethenkirche. The company found a permanent home in the Förnbacher Theater, located in the former customs house in Basel's Badischer Bahnhof and has been entertaining its audience at this venue for the last fourteen years. From September to June the theatre company performs hilarious comedies, touching classics, strong contemporary pieces and musicals with a varied, ever-changing programme.
