QETC is Amsterdam’s leading English-language theatre company. Founded by a small group of English-speaking theatre-lovers in Amsterdam the company celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2022. Since 2002 we have been closely linked to the LBGTQ+ community. Our regular venue is the wonderful CC Amstel Theater, in the Diamantbuurt of De Pijp.
QETC produces high quality, English-language theatre and is run by talented contributors and professionals. For each acting role we seek a perfect match. We are the only theatre company in Amsterdam working primarily with English mother-tongue actors when casting native English-speaking roles, though we of course welcome all nationalities! Our high standards have given the company a loyal audience of which 50% is Dutch.
QETC has a solid reputation as the Netherlands’ top English Language theatre company. Shows have toured to Slovenia, Croatia and The Edinburgh festival. Tours in the Netherlands, have often featured Mark Winstanley (Artistic Director) and actor Loveday Smith (Associate Director). Loveday’s exciting career in theatre and television means she has worked with top directors like Sam Mendes and Sir Peter Hall. Mark also works in Film, TV and VO.
Most QETC/QE2 Amsterdam productions are staged at the city’s newest theatre, the CC Amstel. Centrally located, with a huge stage, 154 comfy seats and state-of-the-art lighting and sound, it offers our audience an unbeatable theatre experience.
