Meet the team of WOW-EFFECT Theater – a group of international theatre fans with different levels of experience. On this page we will introduce you to our team for the season 2021-2022. We hope to see all of them again in the next season!

We have vastly different backgrounds and experience levels when it comes to acting, writing, directing and production, but each member contributes something vital. We all work on our projects as a team and we all are way more than just theatre colleagues – we are dear friends to each other.

Rob Cuperus
Rob CuperusActor
After completing an education in Chemistry, Rob was eager to get back into acting! A huge movie, music, fitness (and of course theater) nerd, his head is usually busier than the rest of him. Just make sure not to ask him for this favourite Iron Maiden album.
Sarah Fünke
Sarah FünkeMaster of None
Just a regular girl trying to make her dream come true: Becoming a Disney villain. If everything fails she’d settle with being a crazy pug lady.

Kinder sind kein Ersatz für Hunde.

Devansh Gupta
Devansh GuptaKing of Multimedia
Devansh thinks of himself as a storyteller, but often fails to communicate his own ideas. Loves being dramatic, but runs away from conflicts. He likes to quietly observe the world and the people around him, but also wants to be centre of attention. Maybe, one day, he will reconcile these ironies. Or maybe he won’t!
Sylvia Hoppenbrouwers
Sylvia HoppenbrouwersDirector
Eager to make impossible projects possible….she is taking the Play very seriously indeed. Vienna fan. Loves creating memories. Not necessarily good ones. She likes unexpected turns.
Tulya Kavaklıoğlu
Tulya KavaklıoğluFounder, Producer
Not as nearly equipped as most other human beings she knows, but she always aims high. Yeah! Gets easily distracted. Girls just wanna have fun.

Mike Kobrine
Mike KobrineActor
Here on his quest to quench a constant thirst for attention. Usually found developing new interests which will be coldheartedly abandoned 2 weeks later. What he may lack in skill is balanced out by being incredibly cute.
Piyush Sharma
Piyush SharmaEngineer in Arts
Calculative, tolerant and perhaps empathetic. He loves Cricket, still dreams of playing at the highest level. He always needs music and makes sure that people around him listen to it too. He wants to do many things but he is good friends with laziness. A serene individual, he’s our perfect “Boy next door”.
Céline Thomas
Céline ThomasActor, Producer
Loves loosing herself in books and being sad she can’t be friends with all the crazy characters… But theatre has given her a worthy supplement. She could use a well-known quote to describe herself, if only unicorns weren’t so mane-stream… At least her picture’s not on toilet paper. All hail the fandom!

Yuting Wang
Yuting WangActor
We are our facades, quoting some philosophers. When you see through all faces people put on, you will realize there is actually nobody home — and that’s her secret recipe.
Tjitse Wolf
Tjitse WolfEx-actor and Director
A junky for both useless facts and music, Tjitse is keen to keep his creative development going. Has no idea where life is taking him, but finds means to express it in artsy-fartsy ways. Sums up life with the “‽” (Interrobang).
Maria Kinast

Inez de Groot
Inez de GrootActor
Inez loves to play, whether it’s on a stage, or with children in the daycare where she works. She just wants to fill her life with fun and theatre is a great way to have fun and explore yourself (spoken as a true dramatherapist)!
Storme Roth-Boggis

Haoyu Yang
Haoyu YangActor
Another ordinary office girl, jumping between Data Science and IT. She chases the newness when it comes to hobbies: last year was water ski, this year is golf & surf skate, next year perhaps wingsuit flying, perhaps drawing, who knows? Acting and fitness though are her coming back hobbies that she cannot leave behind.
