King Richard the Third

7-8 June 2019, Koninklijke Schouwburg

The Tragedy of King Richard the Third excitingly presented “the whole course of his detested life and most deserved death.” As we now know, it's a biased account, blackening Richard’s name while glorifying the rebellious earl who defeated him in battle (and became the grandfather of Queen Elizabeth I, in whose reign Shakespeare lived and worked). Our Narrator guided usthrough the historical background of this troubled and turbulent time. This abridged version was specially designed for “Het Paradijs” and focused on the women affected and afflicted by Richard’s evil career.

A note from the director John Kearey:  It was a wonderful experience to direct such a talented and hard-working cast, and to welcome so many old and new friends to our three performances in “Het Paradijs”! And I’d like to thank all those who gave their backstage support in various ways.


Charity Murder Mystery Dinner 2019

23 March 2019, Wassenaar

Once again, this year's Charity Murder Mystery Dinner at the Warenar Theatre on Saturday 23rd March 2019 was a huge success! A sell out killer show based on the latest product launch event of that well known international technology company, Pear (Please note that any link to any other fruit named international technology company, is completely intentional... errr unintentional!).

The audience gasped with the drama throughout the evening, thrilled as the interweaved story of the suspects unfolded, and cheered when the murderer was finally un-masked by Chief Inspector Savage and his team of resilient investigators (i.e the audience).

Many thanks to those who attended, making the evening such a success! We are pleased to announce that this year, a whopping total sum of 1300€ was donated to Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders!


Jack and the Beanstalk

7-9 December, Theater aan het Spui, the Hague

In 2018, the AATG performed ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ written by John Hall and directed by Jenny Hall, on the 7th, 8th and 9th of December at Theater aan het Spui in The Hague.

This hugely successful and epicly hilarious take on the classic fairy tale we all know and love thrusts Jack into herodom to climb the magical beanstalk and save the children of the village from their doom. There was a trio of bumbling police officers, animals having identity crises, the cantankerous town mayor, a virtuoso harp, and of course, the fearsome giant we all love to hate, and of course, a bloke in a dress!

The audience came to the show prepared to cheer for the heroes, boo the villains, laugh at everyone’s crazy antics, and find out exactly how giant that Giant really is! Overall, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ the Panto was a fun and energetic show full of songs, dances and plenty of jokes for the whole family, and a wonderful memory for all those involved in creating that Panto magic. 

'UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE' and 'FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON'

20 and 21 May 2018 at FEATS, Antwerp

2 June 2018 at Badhuistheater, Amsterdam

“The Universal Language” by David Ives, directed by John Kearey, and “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes, directed by Emma de Moel.

David Ives spins hilarity out of words in “The Universal Language,” which brings together Dawn, a young woman with a stutter, and Don, the creator and teacher of Unamunda, the language that will unite all humankind. First staged in New York City in November 1993.

'Flowers for Algernon' is the compelling story of Charlie, a mentally retarded man, and the strange interweaving of his life with that of Algernon, a mouse.  Experimental surgery has been performed on Algernon increasing his intelligence fourfold. 

“Flowers for Algernon” lit up the Fringe stage in FEATS 2018, while “The Universal Language”, AATG’s Main Stage entry, was nominated for best actor and actress for the leading pair, and won an overall prize for 3rd place. 


Charity Murder Mystery Dinner 2018

3 March 208, Wassenaar: An Ambassadorial Affair

Despite the shock and horror as the Crown Prince of Borogovia met a grisly fate, the participants at the AATG Charity Murder Mystery dinner managed to enjoy themselves at the Warenar theatre.

With clues aplenty, and an enjoyable 3 course dinner, the guests, ably led by the quintessentially grumpy Detective Inspector Savage, cut through the red herrings, the white lies and the distractions of multiple other colours to identify the real murderer.

And to cap the enjoyment, the guests raised over 1200 Euros for the Koningin Wilhelmina Cancer fund.

The AATG wishes to express its huge thanks to all the appreciative and actively participating audience members, the actors who stayed in character all evening, the volunteer waiters and the staff of the Warenar theatre.
