Theatre shows and concerts

In our professionally equipped hall we play host to several artists, mostly three times a week on tuesday, thursday and friday. Most of our shows are spoken Dutch, but we also offer dance performances and music concerts, see below. 

All shows start at 8.30 p.m. Buy your tickets at our desk (monday till friday 5.00 - 10.30 p.m.) or online at this website. There is a discount admission for students and VU employees (including PhD-students!). Be sure to bring your college card or emplyee-card at the night of the show; you'll be asked for it at the entrance of the hall.

It's possible to swap your tickets for another show during the same season. If a show is sold out, it's possible to be placed on a waiting list. Please ask at our ticket desk for more information or send an e-mail to theater.griffioen@vu.nl.
