The South African State Theatre is a national flagship that facilitates the arts and entertainment and encourages diverse cultural provision; we seek to play a unique and vital role in the cultural life of the Nation, the Province of Gauteng and the City of Tshwane.


The South African State Theatre seeks to present the very best performing arts work from the local community, the province, the country and from around the world. We seek to provide a programme in which our own produced work is of the highest standard and accessibility and complements the presented work.

We seek to provide development opportunities for emerging arts practitioners to learn and perform within the context of our programmes.

We seek to provide Audience Development programmes for new audiences to experience our work. We seek to continue to develop our unique theatre facilities, upgrading and maintaining them to support our artistic ambitions for excellence and our passion for welcoming audiences from across South Africa’s diverse population.





The South African State Theatre saw the birth of, and was the driving force behind, the establishment of the performing arts in all spheres in South Africa. The Theatre today plays a leading role in the development of the performing arts, and is host to the colourful variety of entertainment found in the diverse cultures of our wonderful country.

The opening of the theatre complex in May 1981 was a milestone in South African theatre and marked the beginning of great things to come. In 2000 The Theatre re-opened as a receiving house and has been host to blockbuster shows like Cats, Sarafina!, The Phantom of the Opera, The Sound of Music to name but a few. The South African State Theatre has an important and necessary part to play in the daily lives of everyone and is definitely here to stay!
