The theater is working actively to bring theater closer to the public. The Deventer Theatre is a place where the audience may come in contact with the performing arts. The Deventer Theatre is also the home for the leading performers of the city, both amateurs and professionals.  The Deventer Theatre offers a wealth of different possibilities. In addition, its building can be used in whole or in parts. The different areas can independently of each other or be correctly matched to each other. There are Great Hall, Small Hall, four foyers and the stage. The stage of the Deventer Theatre is an area of ​​430 square meters suitable for giving exclusive corporate events, or organizing a festive dinner in a theatrical setting.

The history of Deventer Theatre began in 1870. When the Deventer Theatre was founded in 1870, it was the subject of ridicule, because the small building with many narrow corridors was definitely not suitable for a theater. A theater association was founded firstly to play a comedy. Later performances were housed in a larger property located nearby, but this location also was not perfect. In 1954 a totally new theater was built, which quickly grew after the opening into one of the busiest theaters in the Netherlands. After a significant renovation the Deventer Theatre was opened in 1995. Since then, the theater includes a second small room, better parking and better location, i.e. directly opposite the station. Now it is quite different: pop musicians, comedians, classical musicians and theater groups like to come from around the world to the theater located in the beautiful Hanseatic city. In addition to a stage where nationally known artists and companies perform, the Deventer Theatre also can be developed to a venue for local performances and programs. Deventer Theater cooperates with various parties and people from Deventer and surroundings. The theater will develop as an open “house for art.” Deventer Theatre isa palace of dreams and illusions!

The Deventer Theatre is easily accessible by car and public transport. It is located directly opposite the main railway station, where trains from Amsterdam, Utrecht, Zwolle, Nijmegen and Enschede arrive every half hour.

Very atmospheric theater with many beautifully decorated rooms for different types of music.
Foyer too small. Too busy at the bar.
