Army Europe Entertainment

When you get involved in the Soldiers' Theatre, you're a part of something bigger!  Soldiers' Theatre falls under Army Europe Entertainment. For over 70 years, U.S. Army Entertainment has offered U.S. Service Members, Civilians and their Families opportunities to participate in and enjoy high-quality music and theater programs while serving overseas.

Seven Army Entertainment programs operate at U.S. Army Garrisons in Germany, Italy and Belgium. The program also supports and assists Army and Air Force theater groups in Germany, Turkey, the Netherlands and the U.K.

Army Entertainment programs in Europe function as Community Theaters, offering complete seasons of comedies, dramas, musicals, special events and classes for all ages.

Army Entertainment programs are operated by one or two professional theater staff members supported by Soldiers, Civilians, Family Members and Local National Citizen volunteers. Army Entertainment is the only MWR program that relies on a volunteer work force to operate.

Each year over 2,000 volunteers provide over 300,000 man hours putting on live shows and entertainment events in their European Garrison communities. They serve as actors, directors, designers, choreographers, technicians, costumers, stage hands, painters, builders, ushers and more. This volunteerism and community support equates to over $5 million a year given to European military communities.

As part of all of this, you'll also have a chance to get involved in the One Act Festival and Theatre Skills Workshop. Follow the link to find out more!
