Can admission to the theater be refused?
To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, a check-up with a health check takes place with each visitor at the entrance of our theater. The visitor is asked about the following health complaints:
- Do you have a sneeze?
- Do you have a sore throat?
- Do you have a runny nose?
- Do you have a cough?
- Do you have a fever?
Before you can visit the theater, you must be able to answer "no" to all the above questions before the start of the visit.
If the answer to one or more of the above questions is "yes", it is unfortunately not allowed to visit the theater. Access will then be refused. The visitor is contacted the next working day by an employee of the Box Office about the follow-up procedure.
How does your theater visit looks like?
Immediately after entering, guests will see signs with the applicable house rules. An audit interview is held by employees of the ITA public service.
Self-scanning devices are available at the entrance, with which tickets can be scanned hygienically and without contact. An ITA employee will assist visitors if necessary and will also ensure that the 1.5 meter rule is followed.
The visitor follows the route to the hall by means of arrows. At the room, guests will be received by an ITA employee. The 1.5 meter is indicated by several clear ground stickers, which are indicated on the walking routes.
Wardrobes are not in use. Any coats and bags can be taken into the room. Visitors can put these coats and bags on the chair next to them.
What measures does ITA take so that everyone can keep a sufficient distance from each other?
We have taken measures throughout the theater, so that our visitors and our employees can keep a minimum distance of 1.5 meters. Adapted routes have been created, so that every visitor is guided to the place in the hall with as little delay as possible. All available chairs are always at least 1.5 meters apart.
Doors are open so visitors don't have to touch door handles. There are enough employees available to show visitors the way and thus guarantee a smooth passage. It is only possible to pin in our theater.
Are the foyers and bars open?
The bars in the foyers in the theater are closed. However, the ITA-Brasserie is open, where - after reservation - you can go, via the entrance on Leidseplein.
Is the wardrobe open?
The wardrobe is closed for security reasons. Visitors take the jacket into the hall and can put it on the seats next to them, which are kept free to monitor the 1.5 meter distance.
How do you enter the venue?
If the hall doors have not yet been opened, we will indicate by means of various ground stickers where visitors can wait at a safe distance. Placing in the hall is done on the instructions of the ITA employees.
Before the performance, visitors are instructed on the rules that apply in the hall. It also states that it is not possible to use the toilets during the performance. It will also be announced what the procedure will be after the performance.
How many people are allowed in the room?
The one and a half meter rule is taken into account throughout the visit to the theater. No more visitors are allowed in one room so that this rule can be enforced. The number of tickets that we make available for a performance is adjusted to this.
Can I sit next to my family / roommate / partner?
When booking tickets for a performance during the corona measures, it will be possible to choose a row, but no seat number. Admission tickets are bought without a specific seat. The evening of the performance, the ITA employee will assign you the row so you can insert.
Is there an intermission?
We try to minimize the number of contact moments and the number of times that delays can occur. As a result, there are no intermissions in the performance for the time being and our bars will remain closed.
Is the toilet safe to visit?
Visiting the toilet during the performance is not possible. The toilets can be visited before the start of the performance. We request that you take into account the 1.5 meter distance when entering. Hygiene is of course paramount in the toilet areas. There will be enough disinfectant hand gel. In addition, the cleaning of these spaces has been intensified, before, during and after the performance.
How do you leave the building after the performance?
You are requested to remain seated after the performance. An ITA employee guides the audience out of the room. As soon as the last visitor has left the theater, all exits are closed by the theater staff. Cleaning staff will disinfect all sanitary and all contact surfaces, such as doorknobs, taps, armrests, door posts and stair railings, once the visitors have left the theater.
