A spectacular homemade Western show

The Dutch theatre company ‘Meneer Monster‘ is hitting the stage with an explosive family show, loosely inspired by the well-known comic book series Lucky Luke. A ‘low land’ Western as an ode to daydreaming and the rich imagination of playing children.


In LUCKY LUUK Meneer Monster slowly disappears into the Wild West. Starting from a magical miniature world, three boys make their way through their own imagination. Like three lowland cowboys who want to feel big and tough. But they soon run into their own shadow and run wild in fright.

LUCKY LUUK is a physical and visual performance framed by polyphonic Western music. Due to its universal theme of children playing and the lesser importance of words versus movement and visuals, Lucky Luuk is an ideal show for the international stage.

In 2023 LUCKY LUUK is available for international 

touring from September till December.

A hilarious spectacle with rousing beats and extravagant costumes.


Meneer Monster is bringing the biggest animals of Africa on stage! In THE BIG FIVE Meneer Monster performs big and exciting for the smallest children.


The show starts at the blistering heat of an African desert and slowly evolves into an exciting parade where costumes are the main character of the show.

A theatre show with rousing beats, where we celebrate the full colours of nature and humankind. About diversity, standing out but also blending in and camouflage. The show explores the tension between being and showing yourself and hiding and belonging to a


THE BIG FIVE is performed in a catwalk configuration. The audience on both sides of the runway. The performers coming through middle. This way the audience is very close to the performance in order to create a immersive experience. But no worries, everybody is behind a strong cord, because we expect THE BIG FIVE on stage.

In 2023 THE BIG 5 is available for international 

touring from September till December.

A theatrical wildlife park where your eyes will never get enough. (...) Rarely will these animals have made a bigger impression on the little visitors than with 'De Grote 5'."

"From the first minute, Olaf van de Ven, Christiaan Bloem, and Freek Nieuwdorp have not only captured the children but also the accompanying adults. And they maintain this grip for three-quarters of an hour."

"An impressive feat that the designers of the musical 'The Lion King' would admire."
