Below you will find practical and less practical but nice to know information about our home: Bloemstraat 38.

Bloemstraat 38 is the home of Noord Nederlands Toneel and Club Guy & Roni, together NITE.
The building is also known as ‘De Machinefabriek’.

In addition to being a workspace for the Noord Nederlands Toneel, Club Guy & Roni and NITE, it is also the rehearsal and presentation space of youth platform 2, Club Guy & Roni’s Poetic Disasters Club and Bab-addaar.

Although we are not a regular programming theater – we play our shows in theaters and theaters in the Netherlands and abroad – we do have an experimental art program in house under the name ‘FridayNITE’ every Friday evening. Sporadically we program a theatershow. Often from own house.

On Friday nights, the Machinefabriek is open to the general audience: this is FridayNITE, our weekly stage for experimental art. There is also the opportunity to visit regular theatre productions and open rehearsals.
Should you wish to discover more about the Machinefabriek and its productions, a tour or workshop is aways possible: please click here for more information about our activities.
