Want to spend a holiday with the children in Den Bosch? That's possible at Boulevard!

Playing in the sand, building, dancing, eating an ice cream, visiting a theater performance, it's all possible from Thursday 1 to Sunday 11 August during Theaterfestival Boulevard in Den Bosch!

Boulevard is a wonderful place to spend time with the children. This year we have put together a special children's program, especially for our youngest visitors. From visual performances to interactive workshops – there are lots of things to explore.
Almost every afternoon you can see performances in the Pleinzaal of Theater aan de Parade. There are performances for children of 4 years old, but also 5+ and 8+ performances and of course parents and grandparents are welcome too!

But there is more. Children can build sand castles in the playground, build towers in a tiny wooden house or relax in the mini library with a book every day between 1:00 PM and 5:30 PM on the Parade at Stichting Stadshout Den Bosch. You can also make furniture or toys here under the supervision of professional carpenters. The smallest ones can paint small paintings on wood. Participation is free!

We have made a very nice bookmark with the drawings of artist Rogier Roeters especially for little readers. The front of the bookmark is only a little white. So children can color it in their favorite colors themselves. The bookmarks are available for free at the Huis73 libraries.

Performances for children

These performances are in Dutch and contain a lot of text. We advice you to visit this performance with an understanding of the Dutch language.

Vanaf2 Producties - Anansi de Spin - sterker dan Olifant (4+)
A musical and imaginative puppet theater performance about the smart and slightly mischievous Anansi the spider.

You make up all kinds of things that are not real, are not 'true', do not exist. But when are you lying?

The Amazing Katleen shows what she can do and surprisingly brings out her best and strongest tricks in this wonderfully humorous family performance.

Remses Rafaela - DUKEBOX x Cypher HQ presents: Wijzer (4+)
Wijzer is a children's performance by Remses Rafaela, in which acrobatics, hip hop and Afro-Caribbean dance are mixed with slapstick and shadow play.

A funny, exciting and visual theater performance in which we look for dark and light, fear of the unknown and how to deal with it.

A witty celebration of the child's mind that can't stop fantasizing.
