Our goal is to ensure that Theater Basel is a place where people from throughout the local region can meet and connect with each other. An inclusive multigenerational environment on Theaterplatz, an essential part of the lives of many in the neighbourhood and an open and modern employer.
That’s what we want to be. Join us on this journey and get involved with Theater Basel! Whether as a patron, a sponsor or a member of one of our audience organisations – we look forward to hearing from you.

Several initiatives are committed to Theater Basel. They support the theatre as a whole or only individual departments, they attend performances together and even go on trips.

Theater Basel has been organised as a collective since 1921. As a member of the Theatergenossenschaft you more actively involves in the theatre’s work than others. At the AGM, you will receive details directly from the theatre management about artistic backgrounds and be provided with information on balance sheets, income statements and visitor statistics, besides being able to voice your own opinion. You also have the opportunity to look behind the scenes and will receive two vouchers a year for a trip to the theatre, each worth a maximum of CHF 50.

As a member, you will receive a subscription specially compiled for the Theaterverein as well as discounted tickets for individual performances. Further, you will be invited to exclusive special events.

The Regionale Interessengemeinschaft (RIG) was founded in 1993 as an association. The aim was to better embed the three-section theatre Theater Basel in the local community beyond the borders of Basel-Stadt. Demands for budget cuts at that time were the reason for establishing the association. The RIG advocated a financing model that included the surrounding areas inside and outside Switzerland more.
In the meantime, the RIG has developed into a community of committed theatre enthusiasts who support Theater Basel within the bounds of their capability.
We accompany theatre professionals in the fields of opera, theatre and ballet in Basel and also think outside the box. Particularly popular are the meetings and discussions with the dramaturges, actors and directors.
The programme also includes group excursions to other theatres at home and abroad as well as theatre trips.

The Basler Ballett Gilde (bbg) was founded in 1982. Its aims are to promote interest in both the Ballett Theater Basel ensemble and in ballet as an art form.
At the welcome apéro in the theatre, bbg members meet the dancers; Richard Wherlock provides first-hand information about the upcoming season. Further, you will also have the opportunity to attend a stage rehearsal for each new ballet performance and gain some amazing insights behind the scenes.
The bbg contributes to artistic projects of Ballett Basel financially and idealistically. The bbg also supports individual dancers in transition projects, i.e. professional reorientation after an active stage career.
