The Landesbühne Niedersachsen Nord (LBNN) is a theatre founded in 1952 and located in Wilhelmshaven. Originating from the Ostfriesische Landesbühne in Leer, it is today one of two state stages in Lower Saxony. One of the special features of these houses is that they not only supply their home town and administrative headquarters with theatre art, but also a large play area in rural areas. In the case of the Landesbühne Niedersachsen Nord, which travelled to the Lüneburg Heath in the 1950s, the venues initially changed annually. Today, the theatre presents its productions in a region inhabited by 720,000 people, which extends from East Frisia via Emsland to the Oldenburg Münsterland.
