WOW-EFFECT joins the discussion on Nijmegen’s cultural future Nijmegen is a hotspot for cultural initiatives. Many organizations, young artists and amateur groups– including WOW-EFFECT– receive support from the local government. But a question remains: Is there still room for improvement? Join us in the first Cultuursalon on December 6th, as we talk with Lindenberg’s new director Teddy Vrijmoet about last season’s collaboration.

The opportunity not only meant we were granted a nice rehearsal space and stage for free; it also meant we received valuable supervision on directing, light design and [...]

Cows are either white cows with some black, or black cows with some white. With a zebra, you can’t tell if it’s a white horse with black stripes, or a black horse with white stripes.

Download "Peter Pan" for free! Peter Pan (also known as the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up or Peter and Wendy) is the story of a mischievous little boy who can fly, and his adventures on the island of Neverland with Wendy Darling and her brothers, the fairy Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys, the Indian princess Tiger Lily, and the pirate Captain Hook.
