We have several venues and foyers where we welcome you throughout the year from early in the morning until late in the evening.

Floor plans

The grote zaal has on average five ranks and comfort seats (rank 1+) where you have extra legroom. The rabozaal has an average of three ranks. The studio uses a grandstand, without ranks.

Please note, the ranking with accompanying prices differs per show.

Wardrobe & bag policy

For safety reasons, it is not permitted to take large bags or backpacks into the venues. They form an obstacle to eviction. ITA offers a free, guarded wardrobe where you can leave your bags and backpacks during your visit. Handbags are permitted provided they do not exceed the maximum A4 size and 10 cm thickness.

History of the house

Take a trip with us though the long history of the Huis van het Nederlandse Theater (House of Dutch Theater). The theatre on Leidsplein dates from 1984. But the history of the Amsterdam theatre dates back much further, from 1638. The theatre burned completely to the ground, twice. It was rebuilt. After a thorough renovation, and the
opening of a new state-of-the-art theatre hall in 2009, ITA is ready to serve as a theatre for the future.
