Having been held every two years since 2000, the panoptikum festival has become a popular event to explore the wide range of children's theatre both from Europe as well as from Bavaria. It covers many different genres for ages 3 to 12.  And panoptikum is an excellent place to meet artists, producers, presenters, programmers, and educators from Germany and abroad and enjoy the hospitable and relaxed festival atmosphere in Nuremberg.

For those who missed the 2016 festival panoptikum: our videoclip allows a glimpse at the program and here you can have a look at the press reviews and the radio and tv features about our last festival.


panoptikum is organized by Theater Mummpitz, an independent children's theatre based at the Children's Cultural Centre "Kachelbau", where the Nuremberg Children's Museum also offers children's cultural activities. Since Theater Mummpitz was founded in 1980 more than 50 productions have been created for children age of 4 and up. The repertoire currently comprises twelve plays, most of which are mobile. In addition, Theater Mummpitz offers a varied theatre education programme and regularly takes its productions on guest performance and festival tours in Germany and abroad. In 2009 Theater Mummpitz created the Nürnberger Kulturrucksack (Nuremberg Cultural Backpack), a program for children from less privileged Nuremberg districts.
