Masque Theatre

Cape Town, Western Cape

In 1957 local attorney, Bertie Stern, Chairman of the South Peninsula Dramatic Society, purchased the land for the Masque Theatre. With the help of friends, the derelict building was rebuilt. Bertie insisted that the theatre be multiracial. Every possible obstacle was used to stop Bertie opening a theatre in which all races were welcome, however persistence eventually won the day, and 10 January 1959 saw the grand opening of The Masque Theatre. Then in October 1997 the Masque Theatre was gutted by fire. Thanks to a R1 million donation by philanthropist Joan St Leger Lindbergh and the overwhelming support of the local community, a new theatre rose from the ashes. It is now a first-class venue, seating 173 people, able to host a variety of live shows - musicals, plays, dancing and other events. Visit the website for news of the latest productions.
