Episode 30: Theater Hofpoort
Wednesday, 13 April 2016 at 17.32 hours
From Groningen to Drenthe: today Arno van der Heyden visits Theater Hofpoort in Coevorden.
Marieke Meijerink and Saskia Eisen opened the doors of Theater Hofpoort in 2011, which they had worked towards for over a year. Saskia Eisen is the programmer of the theatre as well, together with her colleague she thoroughly researched the demands of the audience beforehand. Because of this the theatre is able to offer a varied programme each week, with room for 170 theatre and music lovers. Regularly the theatre hall is being used as a conference room by the town council. Just when Arno arrives, the room is being converted back into the theatre. An impressive transformation.

Toneelmeesters is a program about one of many theaters in the north of our country. Dramatist Arno van der Heyden will look for all sorts of facts and the best performance . In Toneelmeesters we get a look behind the scenes at both large well-known theaters and small venues unknown.
Franeker to Stadskanaal, each theater has its own story, identity and perspective on diversity of performing arts. From programmer to light engineer and from horizon to Copper Kees. Arno will take you behind the scenes and goes in search of the true masters of the stage. What wonderful performances this season are on the shelves and of works which we can really miss anything.
