Episode 30: Theater HofpoortFirst aired: 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.
