Tim Douwsma is going to play a role in The Christmas Show at the end of December and is now looking forward to celebrating Christmas with his own family for the first time, he says in an interview with NU.nl.
The 31-year-old singer says that he planned as much as possible freely around the birth of his son. But after that he can also prepare himself for his role as prince in the annual Christmas show, which this time shows an adaptation of Sleeping Beauty .
"The little ones should definitely be around those shows," Douwsma continues. "Just like any other father, I will have to earn my money again. And of course it is not that I have been away from home for four months, quite the contrary. This is just a very beautiful, short and small project, where I am incredibly looking forward. "
The singer prefers to keep the exact date on which his girlfriend Elske Wind is calculated. "Otherwise everyone will be watching with their stopwatch when it is going to happen. But let me put it this way: it is getting more and more exciting, these are the final touches. The idea is sometimes still very unreal. That you will soon have an empty Maxi -Cosi leaves home and comes back with a son. "
Douwsma will play his role as prince in The Christmas Show with a big wink. "We have not yet started the rehearsals, but at least there is a song that is going to be hilarious. The prince thinks he is totally awesome, so it is very nice to be able to play with some self-mockery."
Ilse Warringa gives character vileine and charming side
Ilse Warringa, who will take on the role of Fee Fatale, already has some ideas about how she will work. "I can only really shape her if I have read the script, but I know that I don't just want to make her fake. There is nothing to it. I want to make her as fun, vilein and charming as possible. Giving a counter color is always important "
"This is actually a big playground for me," says Carlo Boszhard, who again took on the script of the show in addition to the narrator's role. "There are all kinds of different versions of Cinderella ; it is great to dive in and grab the most beautiful parts. And then to make everything as large as possible. With flying objects, an orchestra and a choir of forty people."
"Last year we did Cinderella and we noticed that many girls came to the Ziggo Dome in princess dresses," Boszhard continues. "So we wanted to keep that combination of Christmas and a fairy tale with Sleeping Beauty . In the Disney version it is the fairies who take care of her, with us it is Santa Claus. "
The Christmas Show can be seen on 21 and 22 December in the Amsterdam Ziggo Dome.
