MATZER Theatre Productions is a closeknit and dynamic theatre company and also the in‐house theatre group of the Verkadefabriek in ‘s‐Hertogenbosch, one of the Netherlands’ most influential theatre complexes. MATZER presents distinctive, authentic and personal theatre in the Dutch as well as the English language. Various productions (see MATZER Festival Productions) were performed during Voorkamerfest, an international theatre festival in Darling, South Africa.
MATZER strongly believes in the theatre’s indispensable role as a meeting-point for awareness, reflection and actual contact: between actors, between characters and the audience, but also amongst the spectators.
Romeo and Juliet: the concert which toured the Netherlands in 2013 and 2014 can also be performed internationally. This music theatre production consists of English songs, based on Shakespeare’s original text. Romeo and Juliet: the concert and its sequel Three Sisters in Concert (inspired by Anton Chekhovs famous play) can be booked by theaters, festivals and pop-venues.

MATZER Festival Productions is a collection of short and intimate theatre productions which can be played on various occasions and locations. With MATZER Festival Productions we offer the possibility to perform a production of around thirty minutes, on stage during a festival, as part of a business symposium or for example in a living room, dressing room, board room or workshop space.
All of these productions have traveled to South Africa, where they were part of different editions of the Voorkamerfest in the city of Darling. A wall socket and a few square meters of floor space is all we need for each production; each of them literally fits in one single suitcase.
These are all stage performances of the highest level, which have been favourably reviewed by Dutch ciritcs and can be performed in Dutch or in English.
7 deadly sins – 7 lively short plays
A collection of 7 short plays, each inspired by one of the 7 deadly sins. These 7 plays were performed in our hometown of ‘s-Hertogenbosch as part of the festivities commemorating the fact that painter Jheronimus Bosch died five hundred years ago. (for more info: www.bosch500.nl)
