Senior citizens were treated with half price tickets to see Cinderella, the ballet, a wonderful initiative by The Theatre and what a beautiful show it is. A total must-see for the whole family. Just a tip: anyone intending to eat or enjoy refreshments at the theatre restaurant is advised to go early as the service is extremely slow.

Great theatre! Good acoustics and the seating allows you a good vision of the stage from most places.

My husband and I had a lovely evening watching the Jo'burg Ballet perform Giselle. The theatre is well maintained and has a lovely atmosphere.

Always something interesting at the Jhb theatre. It's a lovely building and every time we have been, it's been a lovely experience. Our last visit was the Xmas pantomime. Lovely!
