The "Mondo Musical Group" (as it was called then) was founded in 2007 on the occasion of the 550th anniversary of the University of Freiburg. The Studierendenwerk (SWFR) produced the musical revue "The Show" as a birthday present to the Uni. Under the direction of the theatre director Jesse Coston and the musical direction of Dominik Hormuth, "The Show" was performed by 30 students on a huge open-air stage as part of the anniversary celebrations. The success was huge and since then MONDO has been delighting Freiburg audiences with a changing student ensemble and new productions every year.
Under the direction of director Stephanie Heine, the participating students receive professional instruction in acting, dancing and singing and actively shape the creative process - from an initial play idea to the finished stage production. They contribute their own ideas and perspectives, write dialogues, select musical pieces and design the stage set. The result is music theater with a local and student connection, authentic, young and real.
Around 1800 spectators see the annual performances in the MensaBar. Imaginatively staged, they always come across as original and witty, fresh and cheeky, bubbling over with playfulness and at an astonishingly high level of singing and dancing. The shows are accompanied live by the MONDO Musical Band, which plays newly arranged hits from rock, pop and musicals as well as melodies composed especially for the play.
