Basel Drama & Performing Arts Courses – Simply Theatre

Simply Theatre is Switzerland’s leading English-speaking drama and performing arts training company. Established in Geneva in 2005, we strive to enrich lives and brighten futures through our weekly courses, summer holiday camps and productions.

Our unique and nurturing courses in drama (acting) and performing arts (acting, singing and dancing) help develop key theatrical skills, boost confidence, build life skills and create lasting friendships.  Enrollment for our 2023-4 courses is now closed, however, we are open for new student enrollments for our 2024-5 courses.

Please find details of our 2024-5 Basel timetable and term dates below. All 2024-5 weekly drama and performing arts classes in Basel will begin the week commencing 26th August.

New 3-week bookable trial period

At Simply Theatre, fostering a love and enthusiasm for theatre lies at the heart of the opportunities we provide. We prioritise creating an environment where students actively seek to engage and find joy in their learning journey. Ensuring that our students genuinely want to be part of our courses and thoroughly enjoy their time with us is paramount.

We offer a limited number of three-week trial spots on each course during the initial three weeks of the term. It’s important to note that these trial spots are restricted to a maximum of four per class and are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration for the three-week trials at the beginning of term 1 in Basel can be completed through our parent portal. For full T & Cs of our new 3-week trial period please click here.
