The most loved senior citizen in the country

The country’s most beloved seniors are coming to Delfzijl this week. IN Hendrik Groen, Excited for the finish line Hendrik comes to the disappointing conclusion that he is becoming more and more forgetful. He decides to keep a diary again to keep track of life, which of course makes for funny and poignant moments.

As in the previous Hendrik Groen productions, the cast consists of young actors – with Beau Schneider in the lead role. Because, as director Gijs de Lange puts it so aptly; “There is still a young person hidden in every older person.”

Erik Bosgraaf conducts and plays | Advertising

Recorder virtuoso Erik Bosgraaf conducts the 6th (Leeuwarden, Grote or Jacobijnerkerk) and January 7 (Groningen, De Oosterpoort) Luther’s Bach Ensemble’s New Year’s concerts. Of course, he also plays the recorder and also the chalumeau (a predecessor of the clarinet) and the harpsichord. The program emphasizes the versatility of this Frisian musician.

Luther’s Bach Ensemble presents two Bach cantatas in which the recorder plays a solo role, as an instrument that symbolically refers to heaven and the afterlife. With Graupner and Telemann, they enter two completely different worlds: the cheerful tone and a wink. And of course there is the special chalumeau sound in Graupner’s double concerto.

Groningen – SPOT/De Oosterpoort, Saturday at 20.15, 34.50 euros (CJP 12.50 euros)

Thijs Kemperink is halfway there

Thijs Kemperink, born and raised in Twente, has gradually worked his way up in the cabaret scene. He has since managed to attract a large audience with his narrative cabaret programs and recognizable style. And those stories continue. The comedian has turned 40 and hopes to be about halfway through life’s diaper-to-diaper journey. Before starting the next 40 years, he will evaluate the first 40 years. There are plenty of people who unsolicited their unvarnished opinion about him. But Kemperink prefers to do that himself.

So what is the conclusion? Will he continue in the same way or will it be different? Does he still have dreams or is he content with who he is and how things are going? On his show Midway At any rate, Kemperink already knows it; it is not yet time for a convertible, green pants and a 20-year-old intern. Even if he drives an SUV, because then he doesn’t have to get so low… On Saturday, he plays the premiere of his show in Emmen.

Emmen – ATLAS Theatre, Sat at 20, 19 euros
