About the CTC

Who are we?

Copenhagen Theatre Circle (CTC) is an amateur theatrical society with performances and events taking place in English. The CTC is open to all who have an interest in being on stage, working behind the scenes and supporting in numerous other ways.

What do we do?

The main purpose of the CTC, according to the Statutes, is “to organise stage productions of a high standard in English”. This we do at least three times each season. At the moment, we produce a British pantomime during the Christmas/New Year period and two more productions, one in the spring and another in the early autumn.

Our other aim is “to stimulate interest in the various aspects of the theatre and in the art of acting through the organisation of workshops and other relevant activities”. This we do in various ways.

• Regular monthly events: Poetry & Pints, Improv Workshops and Play Readings.

• So-called “fringe” activities, by which CTC members are encouraged to develop theatre-related projects and bring them to fruition. Such projects can be anything that the committee considers to be worth supporting and promoting.

Open Stage,  in which members of the general public are encouraged to come along and give a short performance to an invited audience.

• As a recent addition, a video club that produces videos for various purposes, including promoting our other activities.

For our shows we need not only actors and directors but all sorts of people to build scenery, make costumes, sell tickets, run lighting and sound, and the hundred and one things that it takes to organize a public performance. It almost doesn’t matter what your interests or skills are: if you’re enthusiastic we can certainly find something for you!

How is the CTC run?

The CTC is constituted under Danish law as a forening and as such is required to have a constitution (see under Statutes) and an elected committee to run it. The Annual General Meeting, which is the sovereign decision-making body comprising the membership of the CTC, takes place in June of each year and, among other things, elects the committee for the coming season. The current committee is presented on the Meet your committee page.

What does it cost? And why and how should I join?
