Buying tickets online is quick, easy and safe. On top of that, online sales are open 24/7. To buy your tickets online, you simply need to create an account the first time. In case of any problems, please send us a message at email@example.com.
When ordering tickets, you have a maximum of 20 minutes to complete your payment. After this time window, your order is cancelled, even if you complete the payment after the 20 minutes are up.

Payment using a Podium Cadeaukaart (Podium gift card)
After selecting your tickets, you can choose to pay using a Podium gift card. Enter the card number and your pin code, and if applicable pay any remaining costs using a different payment method.
Please note: online, you can only use one Podium gift card per order. At the booking office, it is possible to pay using a combination of Podium gift cards.
Payment using a Theaterbon or Concertbon
Unfortunately, the paper Theaterbon and Concertbon (the predecessors of the Podium Cadeaukaart) cannot be used directly for online orders. If you wish to use one of these vouchers for a purchase, please contact our booking office.
Payment using a voucher
After choosing your tickets, choose Tegoedbon as your payment method.
Then enter the voucher code (shown on the Tegoedbon) and if applicable pay any remaining costs using a different payment method.
If the price of your ticket(s) is lower than the amount on your voucher, the voucher retains the remaining balance.
Discounts and gift cards
Ooievaarspas holders are eligible for a 50% discount on the ticket price for many concerts and performances. To check whether your Ooievaarspas is valid for the performance of your choice, contact our booking office.
Using your Ooievaarspas to buy tickets online is not possible. We need to see your Ooievaarspas for registration purposes. This discount on ticket purchases is only available upon presentation of your Ooievaarspas. More information about the Ooievaarspas can be found at www.ooievaarspas.nl.
Youth tickets for €10
Our youth rate of €10 per ticket applies to a number of selected performances for youths up to the age of 26, unless indicated otherwise. If the youth rate is not listed as a price category, this means that the youth rate is not available for the performance in question, or the available tickets are sold out.
Please note: Are you using the youth discount? In that case, make sure to bring your ID to the performance. You will be asked to show proof of identity during the ticket inspection. If you are unable to do so, you will be asked to exchange your youth tickets for normal price tickets at the booking office.
Can I combine multiple discounts?
Different discounts cannot be combined. If you book tickets online and choose a discount rate, this choice is definitive. Refunds in the form of money or vouchers are not possible.
We accept Podium Cadeaukaart, Nationale Theaterbon and Nationale Concertbon and our own restitution vouchers.
Exchanges and returns
Exchanging or returning individual tickets
Up to an hour before the performance, it is possible to return your tickets or exchange the tickets for tickets to a different performance at the booking office. You can submit your request to cancel the performance or concert to the booking office at the ticket desk, by phone or by e-mail. When you return your tickets, you will receive a voucher. We charge a €3.50 administration fee per exchange or return.
Exchanges as part of subscriptions, series and passe-partouts
You can only exchange your tickets for the same performance on another date or time. You cannot exchange your tickets for tickets to a different performance. Exchanges can be made up to one hour before the performance at the booking office. We charge a €3.50 administration fee per exchange.
