Im Alten Saloon

The story.

Im Alten Saloon.  Saddle up your horse and let's go back to the Wild West. It is 1856 in some dusty town in the Midwest of America.  The old Saloon has ran into financial difficulties and needs to find some money and fast. 


The cash prize offered for the city "talent" contest sounds like a great idea. But it ‘ant going be easy finding anyone in this “backyard” town with even an ounce of talent.


But everyone sure thinks they have some!

Why so many schools use Onatti as part of language teaching?

This play is performed by two native Spanish actors. The spoken Spanish will be delivered slowly and clearly.


We want your students to be able to follow the story, sustain their enjoyment and above all the boost their confidence. 

The plot will highlight many similarities to your student’s life, but in a humorous and exaggerated manner, making them relatable and increasing their enjoyment by empathising with the characters and storylines. 


Confidence in pitching of the language.

It is important when creating a play in German to pay careful attention to the written script and delivery of the dialogue.  Our plays will develop your student’s skills in “applying the language they already know” to enable them to follow the story.


We know that new language should always be presented surrounded by familiar vocabulary and phrases to indirectly expose them to unfamiliar words.

Sheets for the play

Every play is accompanied with worksheets. They contain a synopsis of the play, some extracts from the written script and some useful words and phrases
