Toneelgroep Amsterdam provides English surtitles (Projected English translation) for all her August and Thursday evening performances in the Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam.

Flip trough the brochure or download as a pdf.

In order to reach Amsterdam’s expat community, foreign visitors and other theatre loving English speakers, TA has opted to make it available for them to view the performances by our celebrated Dutch actors with the aid of projected translation. This way, English speakers can truly experience the multi-layered approach to Dutch theatre in all its facets, while encountering no difficulties as to understanding the Dutch texts.

When booking a ticket on our site, all surtitled performances on the website can be identified by the word ‘surtitles’ behind the production name. These performances will be all the ones performed on Thursdays in Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam.

During performances of TA, surtitles are projected as close to the actors as possible and are always controlled manually. Thanks to this, visitors who do not understand Dutch can easily follow the action.

Visitors who are dependent on the aid of surtitles are advised to sit more to the back of the audience, so that they can simultaneously view the full stage and the above projected surtitles.


The Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam serves as Toneelgroep Amsterdam's home base, but the group travels across the Netherlands and abroad. Toneelgroep Amsterdam operates internationally with organizations such as Holland Festival, Festival d'Avignon, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Schaubühne Berlin, and Barbican London.

Whilst reviewing a performance in the latter, Michael Coveney of The Independent exclaimed; 'The overall scope of this wonderful project was impressive because of the acting quality of Toneelgroep Amsterdam. It made you want to go straight on to Amsterdam and catch the rest of their repertoire.'
