Summer Theater outdoors

Experience Finnish summer with Theater!

Summer Theater is a unique Finnish tradition. In every summer a vast amount of professional and amateur theater across the nation are putting on their best shows! Mostly the program is light and it includes a lot of music. Even though you might not understand a word, we recommend you to come along anyways - laughter often unites people and the professional actors will definitely get their main points across, even without a common language.

Our seating is designed in a half circle, so everyone has the best possible view to the stage. All our seating is equipped with individual chairs, so you have the best chance to lay back and enjoy!

The main performance of the season is always produced by the fantastic Teatteri Eurooppa Neljä, which is the largest touring professional theater group in Finland.
