The last three days we have been performing an evening of One Acts. Almost completely SOLD OUT. People really had a good time. I was in the play 'Alan Alba and the Black Friday Panic. I played Alan. It was a lot of fun to do. Now we have the summer Break and we will come back with new material in the Fall.
About the story : A popular TV show examines mass hysteria by faking disaster situations. When its star presenter is seen shopping moments before reports of a terrorist attack, no one takes him or the situation seriously, leaving him with nothing but panic and well-meaning fools for company.

I have a long history with ALLO ALLO. I started having the part of British Airman in the March 2017 shows.
After that i played Lieutenant Gruber in November 2017. These were both the theaterplay Version of ALLO ALLO.
This year i've played Captain Hans Geering in the TV episodes Pidgeon Post and The Policemen Cometh in Febuary, April and May 2019. A month later June 2019 i played a younger version of Colonel Kurt von Strohm in the Episodes : Saville row to the rescue and The Execution. The ALLO ALLO time was a good one for me. I learned a lot and it was great fun to try on all of this material and loads of different characters.
This week i played a Police officer in the 80's for a new COP TV Series. Lot of fun.
13,14,15,16 of June i will play Colonel von Strohm in NEW episodes of ALLO ALLO.
And 26,27,28 of June i will play in a One Act performance of Alan Alba and the Black Friday Panic furing the Crossed Wires evening of our group Downstage Left. I have the main character part as Alan.
It was about time for a new photoshoot. This time with White Wolf Photographie . Down below one of the end result photos. See the rest of them on the 'Photos' page.
Right now i am playing the same 'Allo 'Allo episodes in the Badhuistheater in Amsterdam as Hans Geering.
Also i played a part as facist shock blogger Donny Gove in A 2016 Love Story. An original farce, by playwright Denis Burke, A 2016 Love Story plunges us straight back into that tumultuous year. Embroiled in a madcap world of fake news, celebrity deaths and political mayhem, a chance meeting between implacable enemies hints that all is not lost and that, perhaps, love really does conquer all..
The last few months some asignments i did were as Toffe Piet in Sinterklaas & the golden compass.. As Sailor in the new Little Crumb movie and as Construction worker in a new commercial. As always i love what i do and can't wait to take on more stuff.
This month i had the pleasure of playing a father in one short movie called Instaddicted and a Teacher in a short called Never Alone.
Instaddicted tells te story of a daughter who is addicted to Instagram. Her grades are beginning to drop at school and she is failing exams. Dad (my character) is worried about this situation.
Never Alone tells the story of a girl who is failing at school and struggles to find friends. Her schoolwork is behind and her grades are lowering. My character (Teacher) is very worried about this and tries to be a mentor and a friend about this.
Great projects to work on. Excited for more.
January and Feburary 2019 i have been playing in ‘Love in Pieces’ again. The One Act evening about Love from our theatergroup Downstage Left. I learned a great deal during this production. And in Febuary i played Hans Geering in ALLO ALLO. I played in Allo Allo before but that was the theaterplay version of the show and what we are doing now are the episodes from TV. Very fun to do.

I play Gabe Porlin in the shows of PWND written by K.Lavoie and i play the Waiter in the play Wanda’s Visit written by C.Durang. The last two we play in November 2018 and January 2019. Good Times.
