Special event by Events Bohemia and Bear Educational Theatre

PREVIOUS EVENTS - photogallery, videos, comments

ClassinAction is three action-packed days of plays, theatre, workshops, events and fun. The event is held every year in February, in Prague, Czech Republic.

ClassinAction is intended for students of English from all types of schools and drama groups, in short anybody with any level of theatre experience aged 12-18 years of age.

It is a unique opportunity for students and young people to meet, compete, and share inspiration with similar-minded colleagues from many different countries of the world.

ClassinAction is primarily conceived to promote international understanding within the younger generation. It provides an exciting and superb forum where people from different cultures can find inspiration and learn from each other. It promotes the use of English as a tool for international communication and it also encourages native English speakers to communicate effectively with non-native speakers. ClassinAction also supports creativity and originality in young people.

Date and venue
The venue is Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, the dates of ClassinAction are 9th-12th February 2023 (Thursday-Sunday).

Festival concept and participation
The core idea of the event is to produce a short piece of theatre on one of the given themes. The themes for 2023 are:

1. Point of no return
2. Winning the lottery
3. Refugees

The style and content of the performance is up to you, but you have to manage the time well to tell a strong story in a way that speaks loudly and clearly to people of different nations.
A small theatre/theatres in the heart of Prague host the event. The groups will each get a total of 30 minutes stage time to set up, present, and clear away a piece of theatre that will have a maximum playing time of 15 minutes. There will be an independent international jury which will rank the groups and give feedback. (All other technical parameters will be provided in the information pack that groups receive upon registration.)

Should you be experienced or inexperienced, native speakers or non-native speakers? ClassinAction welcomes a mixture of these categories. Even if you are doing theatre for the first time, you are very welcome. First timers always learn a lot from the experience of playing on a real stage and from watching their more experienced colleagues. ClassinAction is more of a showcase than a competition and everybody is welcome.

Festival organizer
The festival is organised in close co-operation with The Bear Educational Theatre and the Independent Original. This strong connection is a guarantee of ClassinAction high professional level. (More information on
