Because we believe that a look behind the scenes and conversations with the artists makes your visit even more interesting (and more fun), we organize all sorts of activities, such as previews, after-show talks, guided tours of our beautiful building and you can attend public rehearsals at the ITA ensemble.
The story, the actors, the ideas of the makers, the secrets from the chef: our speakers will tell you everything you need to know about the show. They provide you with all the information and information needed to enter the hall well-prepared. And above all: to enjoy the show even more.
ITA offers a preview for (almost) every performance. They start half an hour before the start of the show, last fifteen minutes and are free for visitors to the show.
During the after-show talks, the actors, dancers and / or directors join in to tell more about their ideas and methods of working. If you have any questions, this is the perfect time to ask them. For performances of the ITA ensemble, there is a standard after-show talk on Friday. Even after our guest performances, there is a regular conversation with the artists. You can find the info on this in the agenda.
Our after-show talks are free of charge, start shortly after the show in one of our foyers and last an average of half an hour.
Discover the history of our theater (a national monument), visit places that are normally not accessible to visitors, wander around the stage and the changing rooms, hear everything about the architecture and receive all anecdotes about what has happened here in recent centuries.
Every first Saturday of the month a tour starts at 3 p.m. This costs € 7,50 and takes an hour and a half. You can buy tickets for this online or at the box office.
Tailored group tours are also possible. For this, contact Anne Lotte Heijink (firstname.lastname@example.org).
What does a director do to make a text live? How does an actor take on the role of his character? Have you always wanted to know what is really going on behind the scenes of a theater production? Then you are very welcome at the public rehearsals of the ITA ensemble.
After an introduction by the dramaturge, you can then watch for an hour and a half and enjoy the very latest stage directions before the show premieres. Depending on the rehearsal process, you see a certain scene several times or already a part of the piece. Some directors whisper instructions to their actors and others silently observe. But one thing is certain, it will be an uncensored, exciting look in the kitchen.
Tickets cost € 7 and can be purchased online or at the box office.
We provide English surtitles for all performances in August and all ITA ensemble performances during the year on Thursday. We recommend that visitors who are dependent on surtitles take a seat in the rear part of the room (from row 9 and higher), so that you can simultaneously view the stage and surtitles at a glance.
Performances in other languages are surtitled in Dutch. The Dutch surtitles, wherever you sit in the venue, can be read everywhere.
