Covid-19 regulations

If you are experiencing signs of illness yourself which might point to an infection with Covid-19 (fever, cold, cough or similar), please stay at home and do not attend our performances. People diagnosed with Covid-19 within the last 14 days are not allowed to attend our performances, either. The same goes for people who have been in contact with a person who is infected with Covid-19 (documented or assumed).

In light of the current situation regarding the Covid-19 restrictions we have decided NOT to use our own venue (the Kleine Buehne) on show nights with an audience, for the time being. Thanks to the Kulturamt Giessen, we will perform our current shows at the Hermann-Levi-Saal (at city hall, Berliner Platz). This – more spacious – venue allows us to put Covid-19 regulations into practice. Due to the dynamic nature of this situation and the changing restrictions regarding this pandemic, the ability to adjust is key. Therefore we have decided to announce the dates for this season one show at a time, letting you know as soon as we are able to schedule.

We are constantly revising the following hygiene concept and will keep you updated on this site as we approach the opening night. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us; your safety is our highest priority.

We offer no testing on site.

Personal data

We will ask you to register on site for the event, either digitally or via registration forms.

A QR code will be available as the check-in for the event. For this purpose the option provided by the Corona-Warn-App will be used. If a checked-in person later tests positive for the coronavirus, other people who were checked in at the same time can be warned. Please note that all information is processed only locally in your browser. Neither the QR codes you generate nor the information they contain are sent to the Corona-Warn-App servers.

For those of you who cannot or do not wish to register digitally, we will have registration forms for your contact information (name and surname, address, email address and telephone number by which we can contact you) on site. Clean pens will be provided, or you can use a pen of your own.

As we are obliged to ensure that chains of infection can be traced in the event of suspected cases, we will keep the participants’ contact information in accordance with Art. 5 DSGVO. Observing the principles of data protection law, the files will be destroyed four weeks after the show night.

One of our helpers will be available at all times, answer questions and collect the registration forms. 

Stick to hygiene regulations at all times

Be considerate to other visitors as well as our staff by following “sneeze-and-cough” etiquette, keep a sufficient distance from other people around you (at least 1.50 meters) and, of course, wash your hands regularly. Please feel free to use our disinfectant placed in the entrance area.

Mouth and nose cover

Within the venue it is mandatory to wear a mouth and nose cover. Please bring your own mask.

Seating arrangements

The approved seating arrangements at the Hermann-Levi-Saal allow no more than 45 people to sit in the auditorium. You can choose your own seats. 


We will sell a small variety of drinks in bottles. 

Sanitary facilities

A maximum of two people are allowed to use the sanitary facilities at the same time. Please do not remove your mouth and nose cover in these rooms.

Further information

All neuralgic points or other areas in our facilities will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected daily. We are implementing all the medical recommendations which have been given by the authorities concerning social interaction and cooperation with other people. The recommendations will be checked daily and updated accordingly. We are informing our helpers about these instructions and recommendations.
