Episode 16: Atlas Theater EmmenFirst aired: Wednesday, 6 January 2016 at 17.32 hours
In this weeks Toneelmeesters we focus on the new Atlas Theater in Emmen, which is currently under construction and will replace the Muzeval. On site we hear everything about these plans and we get a tour of Jan Geert Vierkant, the new director of the theater.
The new theater in Emmen is named the Atlas Theatre. The new theater is under construction and will open in the fall of 2016. It replaces the theater the Muzeval. The Atlas theater will have a large hall with 800 seats and small hall with 300 seats and 800 standing places. Both halls will have a foyer, from which visitors can look outside through the transparent facade. Technically the theater offers the opportunity to program all kinds of theater disciplines. Next to the theater is currently also a new zoo under construction; Wildlands Adventure Zoo. The theater and the zoo will share the entrance building. Our presenter Arno van de Heyden takes a look at the site, where a construction helmet is currently needed. He receives a tour of the new manager Jan Geert Square, former director of of Martiniplaza in Groningen. He gives us a good theater- tip for the new theater season in 2016.
