The stage of the Münsterländische Freilichtspiele Greven-Reckenfeld is idyllically situated in a wood in the north of Münsterland. There is room for 720 visitors in the covered tiers from row 10 onwards and they have the best view of the various programmes of the Freilichtspiele Greven-Reckenfeld. Thanks to the roofing, the plays can take place in any weather.
Here you get performances with heart and passion. As with most open-air theatres in the Münsterland region, the Münsterland open-air theatre Greven-Reckenfeld depends on the many "invisible" volunteers in the background.
The open-air theatre Greven-Reckenfeld is looking forward to big and small guests. Traditionally, there is a children's play, but it also enchants adults and awakens childhood memories. In the evening performances there are changing shows with lots of music and entertainment. The open-air theatre Greven-Reckenfeld is a destination for young and old.
You can find the complete programme on the website of the open-air theatre. Tickets can be purchased by phone (02575-1566), during office hours and online.
The association was founded in 1947 by Lothar Fabian. In the founding year, the amateur actors' group performed the play "Das Waldhaus" in a hall in Reckenfeld. In the following year, the hall became too small and the performance of "Puss in Boots" took place in the courtyard. This gave rise to the idea of an open-air stage.
The actual first open-air stage was then located on a church site in Reckenfeld in 1953. This was followed by the move to the Leißing farm in Reckenfeld. The new open-air stage was opened there on 11 June 1962 with the play "The Merry Wives of Windsor".
When the performances at the Freilichtbühne Greven-Reckenfeld have their premiere, most of the work is already done for the costume tailors. The costumes are literally tailored to fit the actors. This is the only way the actors can fully concentrate on their performance. From January onwards, countless hours are spent measuring, sewing and altering.
