Het Zaantheater

Zaantheater is a regional theater with two halls and a large lounge with stunning views over the Zaan. Zaantheater was designed by the architects Wim Wester, Paul Carree and Jan Zijlstra. The theater is located in a prominent place on the river Zaan, right in the heart of Zaandam. On December 11, 1998 the Zaantheater was opened by Her Majesty Queen Beatrix. The theater offers approximately 275 theater productions per year, ranging from show and dance to opera and children’s theater. There are family festivals, there are a lot of performances in the field of youth and young people. The Zaantheater is the cultural center of Zaandam. There are premieres of major national productions, but also projects for specific target groups such as the Children’s Gala, Toddler Festival, the Festival of Classical Zaan Festival and Istanbul on the Zaan. There is a Tuesday afternoon series for anyone who would rather go out during the day, a Together Off Salon for anyone who prefers not just go out and many activities for children and youth. Zaantheater was proclaimed by the ANWB Explorers the most child-friendly theater in the Netherlands.

Zaantheater has two concert halls. A large hall can acommodate up to 890 people and a small hall that can acommodate up to 209 people. Both of them are equipped with theater lighting, sound and Flybar. The great hall (Albert Heijn Hall) has an orchestra pit for a large orchestra and a huge balcony. The small hall (Forbo Flooring Hall) has a collapsible stand with 209 seats. Zaantheater has its own restaurant where you can dine before the show. In the Zaantheater there are two meeting rooms, the Forbo Flotexzaal and the Junior Chamber. Zaantheater is a very suitable location for conferences, company presentations or meetings. It’s not a typical conference resort, but an inspiring environment with a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The various rooms and spaces can be rented for events. Also amateur groups, ballet and music schools and primary and secondary schools rent Zaantheater for a final performance or presentation. Because what could be better than giving a presentation in a real theater?

For those who prefer to just go to the theater, there is the Zaantheater Samen Uit Salon. Samen Uit Salon is very simple. You buy a ticket for the show and one hour before you are welcome at the red couch in the lobby for free coffee or tea and something sweet.

Zaantheater is also a unique venue for corporate events, conferences, receptions and for performances by amateurs.
