The Kókler Theatre Troupe is a Hungarian language theatre group founded by Zoltán Tibor Papp at the Hungária Elementary School and Boarding School of Budapest in April, 1986. Since then the troupe has achieved great successes and has a growing fame.
Our mission is to offer a real theatre experience and entertain not only in Hungarian language. It is also our foremost goal to promote the learning foreign languages among primary and secondary schoolstudents. And of course, it is also part of our mission to deliver novel,exciting and engaging performances to attract more and more young people back to the theatre.
The Kókler Theatre Troupe functions as a community theatre group, which means that our shows/programmes and performances are in the service of the Drama and Media Network in Foster Homes and, in broad terms of the whole country.
We also collaborate with the Apor Vilmos Catholic University College, especially with the Department of Drama in Education. In the framework of this collaboration we offer theatre programs to Foster Homes at primary and secondary school level all over Hungary and Worldwide.
In 1992 and 1994, at the first and the second International School Theatre Festival in St. Pölten, we performed with such a success that we were invited to come again.
We was in a special tv show for teachers in 1997. This was a presentation of a new hungarian teaching method in Hungarian Television.
In 2006 we were granted the ELTE (Eötvös Loránd University) Quality Award.
