Along with the already contracted POWER women of The BlueBirds, the organisation of FRIESIAN PROMS 2020 has invited yet another POWER woman. Actress and singer Bertrie Wierenga has agreed to be part of the FRIESIAN PROMS – 5th Edition by taking the presentation upon her.
Her talent for acting manifested itself at a young age. As a 10-year-old she played a part in the musical ‘Oliver Twist’ by Joop van den Ende and still young, Bertrie followed various educations such as Musical Class and dance educations. Her inquisitiveness and interest in people and how to incorporate that in her acting moved her to study psychology for a year.
Meanwhile Bertrie Wierenga has progressed into a much sought-after actress and she has played supporting- as well as guest roles in TV series and films, including ‘Celblok H.’, ‘GTST’, ‘Meisje van Plezier’, ‘de Spa’, ‘Moordvrouw’, ‘Huisvrouwen bestaan niet’ and numerous commercials and theatre pieces. Presently she is often seen on TV playing the part of Shanti Vening in the soap series ‘Goede Tijden Slechte Tijden`.
If you have the right disciplines for FRIESIAN PROMS, talents and love for acting and singing, originate from Friesland and in terms of passion measure up to a famous fellow townswoman (at the age of eighteen Bertrie was elected ‘The Next Mata Hari’ in Leeuwarden) and on top of all that also love horses, then there´s no way the FRIESIAN PROMS organisation could ignore you. Obviously, the organisation feels the same way so they have invited Bertrie to do the honours and host the ‘5th Edition’ of FRIESIAN PROMS. We are looking forward to it…!
