It’s actually not allowed to post off-dates here in the Netherlands, at least SE doesn’t seem to approve of it. But do let me know which performances you were looking at, I’ll need to know ;D
Lmfao, that’s… interesting. Especially since fangroups of SE’s German productions can usually tell you the upcoming month’s schedule for all the swings, let alone the leads. xD
I was thinking of doing a weekend in December? So def two shows on a Saturday and then the Sunday would depend on my travel arrangements. So that’d be the 6th, 13th or the 20th, I guess.
Explain November to me, though… According to the website, there are only performances on Saturdays… is that the Dutch way of doing previews, or? xD
I know! But I must say I personally haven’t seen it happening yet for Dutch shows. I once bought tickets to a very specific Sunset Boulevard performance, Pia Douwes’ premiere, but then the other lead injured herself and it was in no way certain anymore that Pia would be playing on that date. So I mailed SE and they told me “you come for the show, not the performers”, but tbqh less nicely worded. To be fair that was 6 years ago but… guess you’ll have to keep checking her fanpage then.
Ha you want to see a lot of shows ;) Makes sense if you fly over of course. Do you want to buy the best possible seats for all performances? ‘Cause with Korea and all my budget might not allow for that… :P;
Ehm. You know I checked other sites as well and I keep getting the same schedule, but it puzzles me as well. Previews are not generally like this, but just the first week or two of performances before the show officially opens. I have no clue what’s up with that schedule… might be that the theatre was already booked but even that idea seems farfetched. So eh, sorry, I have no idea what’s going on there XD;
Silly Stage. Don’t cast Pia, then, if you don’t want people wanting to see Pia. #duh
Yeah, if I’m going halfway across Europe to see the show, I definitely wanna go at least twice. Not all for top price, though; Erasmus isn’t giving me that much money. xD Of course, if you have any info about what the situation is like over there with student discounts and/or discounts in general, that’d be super-useful.
I still need to see how I’m actually getting there, though. There’s a bus from Brno and a train from Prague, but both of them take ages and don’t cost that much less than flying would. Or, if I were to go the weekend before Christmas, I *could* fork over the money for an adult (sob!) InterRail pass and make it a longer trip, maybe visit Amsterdam or sth, idk. I need to figure this out. Tips about what to see in the Netherlands are very welcome at this point ofc. ;)
And lol @ the schedule. At least I’m not alone in not understanding it; that’s comforting. <3
I know right? But like said, they might have changed their policies so if you want to be sure, keep checking her fanpages.
Well there’s not all that many possibilities for discounts here. I used to have a culture pass that used to give me a discount at certain theatres, but I no longer have that and besides that I just see discounts for kids and the elderly. Not even those discounts apply to every show. =/
The good thing about the Netherlands is that everything is ridiculously close together. Like, I don’t know if you want to stay with me, but I live in the neighbourhood of Utrecht (about 25 min with the bus), and from Utrecht you can reach practically every city by train. Amsterdam is about 30 minutes away for example. Cities I would recommend are Utrecht, Amsterdam, Den Haag, Rotterdam or Eindhoven, because most tourists seem to visit those. Utrecht is my personal favourite, Amsterdam probably has the most sights. The theatre is in Scheveningen, which you can only reach from Den Haag (The Hague) anyways, so you could probably combine the two. And as Scheveningen is a beach town you’ll even get to see the North Sea and so round off a list of typically Dutch things to see ;D
It might still have something to do with previews, though, that’s the only reason I can come up with, but I really haven’t seen such a drawn out schedule before.
