Fredericia Theatre is located at Prinsessegade 29 in Fredericia. Since October 2011, the theatre has exclusively set up musicals that have never been professionally played in Denmark - many are even Europe or world premieres. In addition, the theatre provides a wide range of events such as concerts, stand-up, other theatre productions and conferences.
The theatre's goal is to demystify "new" plays and show what the musical genre can do. The theatre believes that there must be something for everyone - even those who don't think musicals are their cup of tea. The creative ambitions and impressive reviews has drawn attention both within Denmark and internationally, and positioned Fredericia Theatre as a remarkable player in the world of musicals.
The theatre is amongst other things known for its musical productions of Disney classics such as Disney's Aladdin, which was later reopened at the Opera House in Copenhagen and for Disney's The Little Mermaid - The Musical, which was also relocated to the Copenhagen Opera House. In 2015 the theatre was hugely successful with Shu-bi-dua - The Musical which was also set up in both Aarhus and Copenhagen. In 2016 Fredericia Theatre premiered with another Disney venture: The Hunchback of Notre Dame - The Musical. During the summer of 2017 The Hunchback of Notre Dame plays at The Royal Theatre in Copenhagen.
In addition, Fredericia Theatre has also in 2017 produced: Lizzie - The Musical (which was later set up in London), The Trouble with Doug, Legendale and the September premiere of Seebach - The Musical.
In 2018 Fredericia Theatre will produce and debut the world premiere of Dreamwork's The Prince of Egypt.
The Prince of Egypt will be set up in both danish and english.
In 2017 Fredericia Theatre was nominated for 3 Reumert prizes and won all three for the production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
