about us

The Semi-Circle Basel is a modern amateur theatrical community for actors, directors, stage managers, crew and more.


We believe that being involved in the performing arts builds community – especially important in an increasingly disconnected world.


We showcase amateur theatrical talent, through productions that entertain, inspire and sometimes challenge.


We develop future talent for roles both on and off stage through mentoring, practical workshops and hands-on theatrical opportunities.


While our performances are in English, they include translations of plays in other languages. We showcase plays ranging from the classics to more modern pieces.


And while the stage is our first love, we also bring works to life through film.

Every month there’s an opportunity to get involved. See our What’s On page.
