Mister Twister on Stage

German title: Mister Twister auf der Bühne *
Netherlands, 2014

Director: Bredero, Barbara
Production company: PV Pictures
Age recommendation: 7 years and up

Synopsis:
Alright then, Mees Kees is really just an intern, but boy, does he give great lessons. They watch Spiderman in Biology, in Maths they stack the tables on top of each other and during oral presentation, Mees Kees talks about his secret love whom he doesn’t dare to speak to. Mrs. Dreus on the other hand, the school’s director obsessed with rules and regulations, is not so charmed…

The big end-of-term play is approaching. Tobias is somewhat anxious, but with Mees Kees at the helm, everything should be just fine. The class look forward to rehearsing in the afternoons and to making beautiful scenery – until they find out that Dreus has chosen a terribly boring medieval play. Moreover, it is to be staged in a dusty room of a nearby retirement home. But Mees Kees wouldn’t be Mees Kees if he didn’t put his own twist on things.
