Dutch Theatre Festival in Amsterdam

Get star struck as the biggest names in the Dutch and Belgian theatre world strut the red carpet and experience the drama as performers compete for the theatre awards. The Theatre Festival features the best productions of the theatrical season in various locations, including the city's Internationaal Theater Amsterdam and Theater Bellevue. A number of performances with English surtitles are suitable for non-Dutch speakers, while other visual performances are aimed at much younger audiences.

Jury & Theatre Awards

During the season, the theatre jury selects the year's highlights, revealing its top 11 productions. The jury also nominates producers and actors for the VSCD Theatre Awards and of course, audience favourites are placed firmly on the listings. Various English-speaking masterclasses and lectures by top international theatre experts and practitioners are usually also planned during the festival.

Amsterdam Fringe Festival

Running alongside the Dutch Theatre Festival, the Amsterdam Fringe Festival celebrates the avant-garde by staging around 80 productions by cutting-edge home-grown and international producers and artists at diverse locations across the city.
