Theater Kikker is a versatile theatre in the heart of Utrecht which puts on contemporary theatre, modern dance and youth theatre on its two stages. The history of Theater Kikker (the ‘Frog Theatre’) goes back to the year 1972, when members of the Utrechtsch Studenten Corps student association started a small theatre. They named the theatre after the hazing ritual that used to take place in the same spot: new students had to leap like frogs through the pub before they were officially admitted to the association.
In 1980 it moved to its current location on Ganzenmarkt. Theater Kikker has grown into an important venue for contemporary theatre, modern dance and youth theatre. Some of the performances are of interest to non-Dutch speakers. These are labelled as ‘Language no Problem’.
