Summer Festivals

From 1-11 September, the Dutch Theatre Festival in Amsterdam revisits the best theatre productions of the season - those hailed as must-sees by critics and audiences alike.

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 festival features the best productions of the theatrical season in various locations including the city's Stadsschouwburg Theatre, Theater Bellevue, DeLaMar Theater and De Krakeling Youth Theatre.

During the season, the theatre jury selects the year's highlights, revealing its top ten productions in May. The jury also nominates producers and actors for the VSCD Theatre Awards, presented during the festival's glittering gala event at Amsterdam's Stadsschouwburg Theatre. Audience favourites are also nominated and included in the festival listings. The highest scoring production receives the prestigious Avro Toneel Publieksprijs Audience Award, worth 35,000 euros.

For the newest generation of theatre goers, the festival includes a youth theatre listing with performances taking place at De Krakeling. But avant-garde theatre isn't left behind, with the Amsterdam Fringe Festival staging around 80 productions by cutting-edge home-grown and international producers and artists at over 25 locations.
