4:e teatern

It has been our aim, ever since we started in 1982, to work with stimulating and innovative drama. Our motto is “imaginative simplicity”. We prefer newly written works, and we usually include music and singing in our productions.

Children and teenagers are important target groups. We treat our audiences with the greatest respect, and are not afraid of either the big existential issues or the trivialities of everyday life. We also strive to make sure that adults too can enjoy our work. If we say that we are doing a family production we mean it.

Our repertoire also includes productions aimed at adults only.

We are supported by the Swedish Arts Council, the City of Västerås and the Västmanland County Council. Our mission is to set up high-quality stage productions for children and young people in Västerås and the rest of Sweden.
