Friends of De Schalm

The Association ‘Friends of De Schalm’ is a fast growing group of theater lovers, who enthusiastically promote De Schalm and support the cultural life in Veldhoven. With the support of friends, the theater is able to develop special projects or initiatives. Every season, the donations of all friends are used to support a specific objective, selected by the Friends of De Schalm.

Youth participation

The board of the Friends of De Schalm Association has decided to pay a financial contribution to the show ‘Oorlogsgeheimen’ (Secrets of War) in the theater season to come. The coming year, the focus will be on ‘The Netherlands, 75 years of freedom’. The show Oorlogsgeheimen is perfectly in line with this theme. With the financial contribution, the board tries to enthuse the youth for drama. By selecting this target group, we will be able to reach many school kids, since we will provide a curriculum regarding this theme for both group 5/6 and 7/8. By doing this, the board is meeting the wishes of the members, who would like the association to focus on stimulating youth and youngsters to visit the theater. For that reason, the board will also pay a financial contribution to the production ‘Anne Frank’.
