Theater aan het Vrijthof programme suspended
until june 1st 2020


Slightly different together!

Dear season ticket holder, 
Dear friend, 
Dear theatre visitor,

We hope you are doing well in these difficult times. Undoubtedly, you heard that all events, meetings and performances until June 1, 2020 have to be canceled. This national measure to combat the coronavirus is necessary to ensure that as many people as possible remain safe and healthy. Because your health is paramount.

With pain in our hearts, we cancel all scheduled performances until June 1, 2020. This means that about 130 performances and concerts will not go ahead in Theater aan het Vrijthof.

What does this mean for you?
If you have tickets for one or more of the cancelled performances, we will inform you by email in the coming months of how the theatre is dealing with this situation, about any rescheduled dates or possible refunds. The theatre follows the national guidelines of our branch organisation VSCD. We ask for your understanding and your patience in this matter. This is an unprecedented situation for the theatres and concert halls in the Netherlands as well, and so it is for all the performing companies and artists. As we have to deal with so many performances and tickets sold, we request that you do not contact our UITbalie and trust that we will inform you in person.

What does this mean for the theatre world and all theatre artists and companies?
This measure has major consequences not only for the venues, but also for all resident and visiting companies, artists and creatives. Please know that their hearts beat faster when they make plans, write, rehearse, design, are on tour, perform in front of you and meet you after the show in our foyer. All these elementary things are currently impossible. The cultural sector and the theatre will be looking for solutions, but we need you to be able to do so. We need your confidence and trust, in our visiting companies and artists and in us, your local theatre.

In the forthcoming period, we will find out the consequences of this crisis for the current as well as the new season 2020-2021. We hope to welcome you again in June or September in Theater aan het Vrijthof. We will keep you informed about how we deal with the cancelled performances, about all developments concerning when and how we will announce the new season. Let us put a dot on the horizon, so we can look ahead and look forward to the first applause that will sound in our theatre again.

Take care of yourself and each other.

On behalf of all our partners and companies and all of us at Theater aan het Vrijthof

Jean Boelen
