“Having it in this space really gives the theatre a special feel. The stage is close to the audience and it’s very intimate,” explains Steen Stig Lommer, theatre manager and actor. “The garden becomes a theatre in its own right, and both the actors and the audience are united by being out in the elements together. There’s a togetherness that you simply don’t get in a traditional theatre.” An evening at Grønnegårds Teatret often starts with a picnic. There is space for 1,040 spectators in the audience and upwards of 700 start the night with a picnic, which they have either brought themselves or reserved to pick up at the café.
