In many ways Theater Kikker is a special experience. So we say ‘people’ go and see for yourself and experience one of the shows at the Theatre. We recommend the debut performance ‘La Isla Bonita’ on 22 and 23 September, a swirling performance of five girls from the Performance training from Maastricht, that shed light on the different aspects of refugee problematics.

Since late August 2015 Theater Kikker also operates the brand new Podium Hoge Woerd in the impressive Castellum Hoge Woerd located at Leidsche Rijn.
