The Brinkmann-Schafranek Foundation
for Performing Arts

- founded in memory of my parents Ruth Brinkmann and Franz Schafranek, who established Vienna‘s English Theatre as the first English theatre in continental Europe in 1963 und led it continuously to success over the following years. As a member of the foundation, you will enjoy exclusive benefits and meet like-minded people and artists at regular events for members. With your contribution you will be supporting the artistic work of Vienna’s English Theatre and help us to maintain and further develop the high quality of our programme in the future.

Should we have succeeded in entertaining, touching and convincing you with our productions and if it is important to you to maintain Vienna’s English Theatre as part of the local cultural scene, we look forward to welcoming you as Friend, Supporter or Patron.
