Welcome to Leiden English Theatre!

Leiden English Theatre (or LET, as we affectionately call it) is THE English language theatre group in Leiden.  Are you interested in joining our theatre group? Simply e-mail us at  joinus.let@gmail.com. On this website you can find information on everything to do with us, auditions, productions and more.

For the Spring production, we are finally producing the long awaited and anticipated sequel to one of our original plays. Leiden English Theatre would like to present:

 ‘An Evening with Shakespeare, Part II’.

An Evening with Shakespeare, Part II will consist of scenes from some of William Shakespeare’s most famous and infamous tragedies, comedies, dramas and sonnets. From monologues, to singing and big scenes, there is something for everyone.

Don’t limit yourself to only one scene. You can try out for many in order to increase your chances of getting a role and take part in all the genres.

To make sure that we are able to see everyone we ask you to fill in the form before Sunday, February 2nd.


Just like the first ‘An Evening with Shakespeare’, Part II does not require just one director, but multiple.

If you always wanted to be a director, but never wanted to direct a big production, then this is your opportunity. You can pick a scene, no matter how big or small, from any Shakespeare’s work and mould it to your heart’s desire. You can choose to direct any scene from the works of William Shakespeare, as well as modern adaptations of his work. This is your chance to get a taste of what is like to direct before you take on a bigger project.
