    Episode 26: Theater Meerzigt Eastermar

    First aired: Wednesday, 16 March 2016 at 17.32 hours

    In the Frysian 'Wâlden' (woods) and between two lakes lies Theater Meerzigt. That's where Toneelmeesters is situated this episode.

    Today host Arno van der Heyden visits a small, but attractive theatre. Meerzigt once started as a location for formal meetings, but slowly started to become a cultural meeting point in 2008. The cosy theatre has room for 60 to 90 visitors, which makes the acts and performances very intimate and the ambience personal and easy going. Arno chats with owners Ada Roelants and Heymen Jansen, while they transform the empty room into a a theatre room. Amongst other things, they tell about the history of Meerzigt, about organising and programming its shows and lastly: how Ada and Heymen will say goodbye to their theatre in April.
