The Bosco THeatre
An original traveling circus tent
The Bosco Theatre is an original Dutch "kermis"-tent and was built in 1909. She was owned by the Ophof family who travelled with the tent and used her for their performances.
The tent has a round structure with a beautiful old front and is made of mainly wood and has a canvas roof. The front of the tent is a veranda you enter by a wide wooden stairway. On this veranda we find the box office and the two entrances into the actual theatre.
Entering the heart of the tent is a special experience. It is a darkened space in brown and red. The tribune has 7 levels and is in the shape of a half moon that holds about 185 adults.
The Bosco combines great intimacy with a cost-effectifve capacity for audience. The tent maintains a very fine setting for various forms of theatre, musicals and even film.
