The German Drama Company: Mörder mögen's messerscharf (Who killed the Baron?)

Welcome to the 2019 season of the German Drama Company!

We are a student-run amateur theater group operating out of the University of Auckland since 1977. Every year we present a play in the German language at the University of Auckland, bringing together members of the German speaking community for one week-long theater season in mid-August. We are very proud and excited to present our 41st show!

This year’s show is a hilarious murder mystery set in an old manor, centered on the household of Baron Leopold von Herrschershausen. Unfortunately, the Baron was murdered the night before, and his incredulous and astonished ghost bears witness to the increasingly absurd situation unfolding before him. Confusion reigns, particularly when a second ghost shows up! Will Detective Else Nehrlich and her hapless assistant bring the murderer to justice?

Tickets can be bought at the door or online. However, shows do sell out, so it's best to buy tickets in advance online to not miss out! For more information and to buy tickets online, click the link below:
