Episode 24\: The BaronTheater in Opende
Wednesday, 2 March 2016 at 17.32 hours
Today Arno van der Heyden brings a visit to BaronTheater in Opende, Groningen.
In 2012 the BaronTheater opened its doors in Opende, which makes it a very young theatre solely run by volunteers. The intimate theatre hall is called the Bombardon, named after the precursor of the sousaphone, a kind of tuba. The hall has an extendible stand and makes room for 172 spectators: a relatively small, but cosy theatre. Arno gets to know more about the existence of the BaronTheater, when he chats with members of the Bicycle Showband Crescendo. Furthermore, he explores the various rooms of the building, like the museum and exhibition room.
About this program:
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.
