The theatre’s programme is based on its own productions and both domestic and international guest performances. Since the theatre was founded it has hosted performances from over 30 countries. Our closest partners are Sweden and Estonia, and we try to import at least one production per year from both countries. International guest performances are usually subtitled into Finnish.
Espoo City Theatre is maintained by the Espoo City Theatre Foundation, which includes representatives the City of Espoo and the theatre’s support association. Olli Männikkö has been the Foundation’s chairman since 1988 and the board serves a 2-year term.
Our theatre has 13 permanent staff but over 100 people work there in the course of a year.
Over the last five years we have attracted 25,000–35,000 spectators annually. In 2016 the figure was 26,000.
