In addition to a film, there will now also be a musical based on the popular book series Juf Braaksel by Carry Slee. The musical Miss Braaksel and the Magic Ring will be shown in Dutch theaters from August 2024. The cast will be announced later.
The Miss Braaksel books tell about the best friends Lotte and Thijs, who get a new headmaster. However, this teacher Brakel turns out to be a secret that ensures that all fun at school disappears. Speeches are abolished, the aquarium with goldfish disappears and there is only order and discipline at school.
Six parts in the series have now been published, many of which have sold hundreds of thousands of copies. The script and direction of the musical are in the hands of Florus van Rooijen, Marnix Wetzer will compose the music and Aukje Nieuwenhuijze is responsible for the choreography.
As with the cinema film that will be released this winter, Slee also remains closely involved in the development of the musical. It is produced by STENT Productions. The premiere is scheduled for September 22, 2024 in Hoorn.
The Juf Braaksel film will premiere on December 20, 2023. The title role is played by Nicolette van Dam.
