Passau is some hundred miles roughly north-east of Munich, on the Germany/Austria border. Landshut is less than fifty miles from Munich in the same direction; Straubing is some thirty miles east of Regensburg. Although Theaterzelt translates as “theatre tent”, The Theaterzelt Landshut is a proper theatre with all the usual amenities, including a roof. The company’s website describes Simon Butteriss as “eine Gilbert-and-Sullivan- Legende”, which I do not think requires translation.
