The SCHULE FÜR SCHAUSPIEL HAMBURG (SfSH) was founded under the name O33 in 1987 by Olivia Rüdinger and Michaela Uhlig. It was initially conceived as a further education drama school for qualified actors, singers and dancers. At the time, this concept was completely new and unique in Germany , corresponded with the emerging zeitgeist and therefore met with great interest. In cooperation with the Agentur für Arbeit (formerly ZBF), artists from the entire German-speaking world continued their training in the areas of acting, singing, dance and speech at O33.
Encouraged by the great response and success of their concept, the directors decided in 1992 to offer professional acting training under the name SCHULE FÜR SCHAUSPIEL HAMBURG.
Jan Oberndorff, actor, director and drama teacher joined the leadership team in 2011. He is also a former graduate of the SCHULE FÜR SCHAUSPIEL HAMBURG.
Katharina Jann, Ulrich Meyer-Horsch and Jan Oberndorff take over the management of the SCHULE FÜR SCHAUSPIEL HAMBURG, succeeding Michaela Uhlig and Olivia Rüdinger, the original founders of the school.
The SfSH will collaborate with international schools in the future, thus becoming even more attractive for students from abroad. The goal is to offer bilingual education in the first two semesters within two to three years.
