Your show or event in Plein Theater?

In addition to a public program composed with love by Plein Theater, our theater regularly hosts (cultural) activities and (semi-)amateur and academic performances. Our theater hall can be rented for various purposes and events and is a perfect space for (small-scale) stage presentations.


Theatre rental during summer period

The Plein Theater is available in the summer months of July and August!

Please note: Plein Theater only has one space for programming and rental and there are usually more requests than we can accommodate. We prefer to give space for the (performing) arts and activities that match our vision and philosophy. Due to Plein Theater is being managed with a small team, it may take some time before we answer your email. We ask for your patience and understanding for this.
