Frequently asked questions

What are live streams?

The first two programmes of the 2020-2021 season will be made available to you as a live stream: the performance danced by the dancers of NDT on stage in the Zuiderstrandtheater will be filmed live and then streamed. This means that you can attend the performance live at home, and watch the performance on a screen in your own living room. This is by no means a diluted theater experience. The dancers and support teams make every effort to make your visit to our online 'theatre' as special and inspiring as possible.

The live stream consists of an introduction and the entire performance itself. Tickets for the live streams cost € 15 each.

Can one person order more tickets for different people?

Zuiderstrandtheater asks you to only order tickts for you and your own household, so they are able to maintain the 1,5 meter distance between different households.

I have a disability, will I be allocated a place in the Zuiderstrandtheater?

In that case, you are able to take a seat in the downstairs area of the auditorium. Employees of the Zuiderstrandtheater will guide you to your seat.
