Its mission is to recognise and reward excellence in the Performing Arts, to raise the profile of Live Theatre and to create awareness of the abundant talent alive and well on our SA stages.

The Naledi Theatre Awards has honoured over 60 Lifetime Achievers: veteran artistes, technicians, and administrators who have dedicated their lives to SA Theatre, and also pays tribute to people in the Arts who have taken their final bows during the year under review.

The Naledi Theatre Awards covers all mainstream professional productions from the period 1 January - 1 December of the previous year and the Naledi judges typically evaluate over 70 productions in approximately 27 categories. The Naledi panel of judges consists of informed and regular theatre-goers, academics and members of the media covering the arts in Johannesburg.

Generous sponsorship is provided by the DAC’s Mzansi Golden Economy and Kyknet, with support funding from Business and Arts South Africa (BASA).

Sponsorship in kind is received from the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City; Tsogo Sun, Distell, The Johannesburg Youth Orchestra (JYO), OffCentre Design, MJ Event Gear, Jimmy Choo Man, Illicit, Gearhouse Splitbeam, AVIS and Stiki corporate gifts.
