St. Pölten's Stage in the Yard offers a great variety of events, from cabaret, comedy, music, dance, ballet, to children and youth theater. Plays are orientated around everyday themes, so in the youth theater, for example, you'll find topics like problems with drugs, alcohol, racism, unemployment, etc. or plays with subjects concerning different cultures, contemporary politics and more. The theater is managed by Mimi Wunderer who founded it in April 1990. She has received various awards in Lower Austria for her dedication to the arts. Events generally start at 8p.
