The Playhouse Theatre

The Playhouse Theatre
The burgeoning town of Somerset West on the suburban fringe of the city has long been home to an amateur dramatic society of much repute.  The Hottentots Holland Dramatic Society (so name for the mountain range that looms large over the eastern side of the small theatre) rather uniquely owns the theatre and is responsible for the bulk of the productions that are presented here. 

A story of success
The Playhouse Theatre story is a story worthy of a play in itself - one of community spirit and the overcoming of all manner of obstacle as a small group of committed residents took their passion for theatre and literally built their dream of creating a theatre for all to enjoy.

Live their dream in theatre
Today this dream is a reality and the Playhouse Theatre stands proudly on the corner of Lourensford Road (at the end of this road you will find the Vergelegen, Morgenster and Lourensford wine estates) and Swalle Street.  The productions here are frequent and of a level not often matched by other amateur dramatic production houses.  A visit to the Playhouse is a wonderful way to enjoy some South African theatre in a setting much less commercial and with a very authentic and local feel.  Call the box office to find out what is on and for times and dates of the performances.  The runs tend to be quite short as most of the participants have day jobs to get to, so be sure to enquire as soon as you hear of something you like the sound of.  Local dance is also often showcased here and, as with all the productions, would benefit enormously from your support.
