Directions to South African State Theatre
The South African State Theatre is an integral part of both the history of performing arts in the country, and also the present day success of theatre in South Africa. This venue is much more than a theatre complex - it represents the life and soul of theatre in both the capital Pretoria and also the country as a whole.
The complex, opened in 1981, houses 'the greatest performing arts facilities in Africa', with a variety of theatre spaces plus a huge range of rooms suited to almost any performance, function or special event. The interior is surprisingly stylish and sophisticated, oozing quality and charm. Working as both a high-end receiving house and a theatre venue, this complex is an important focal point for Pretoria's buzzing CBD.
Expect a wide range of interesting and exciting events at the South African State Theatre - from festivals and fashion shows to weddings, parties and corporate dinners. If you're after entertainment, there is a running programme of world class ballet, opera and cabaret performances, plus regular music and drama shows. See the venue website to find out what's on now and purchase your tickets.
An upgrade project is currently under-way at the time of writing, due to be completed at the end of 2013. The front of house facilities will get a revamp, with a brand new restaurant, bars, gift shop and museum.
