Muizenberg and Kalk Bay Theatres
The Masque Theatre is on the Main Road (M4) in Muizenberg. It regularly hosts plays, musicals, ballet recitals and comedy shows.
Car attendants and ample parking are provided, and the bar is open for refreshments.
The theatre was founded in 1959 by Bertie Stern to foster a universal love for theatre. His dream lives on in the Muizenberg community. Despite a fire that ravaged the premises in 1999, the theatre was rebuilt. A highlight nine years after the fire was the hosting of the theatre’s 100th performance – Witness for the Prosecution – an Agatha Christie drama.

The Kalk Bay Theatre (http://kbt.co.za/)
This 78-seater gallery theatre was once a Dutch Reformed church. Today the small building – constructed in 1876 – enjoys heritage protection.
Friends gather around 18h00 to reserve their seats before enjoying a light meal and drink on the upper-level bar, ahead of the evening’s entertainment. Food is served before the show, unless by prior arrangement.
Each show runs for eight weeks, from Wednesdays to Saturdays at 20h30 (Sunday performances are occasional, so please check before arriving.)
