This privately owned theatre offers an interesting programme the year around. Regularly they receive well known comedians with their programms but also offer own comedies with "their regular artists". The theatre is owned by the Rasser family, a very well known and talented family of artists. During pre-carneval time, they also have a much-liked programme called "Pfyfferli".
