The Fugard Theatre is a landmark theatre venue in the city centre. We attended this delightful musical, with a fully African cast. Although ultimately a tragic story of a 1950s boxer (Ezekial Dlamini), it puts a smile on your face for most of the show....More

Great theatre, with fantastic shows, this was my third visit and I have enjoyed every one. Great view of stage from all seats in the house, especially good are the odd one off music shows.

Besides its prime programming with the best plays and musicals ever to reach South Africa, if not the whole continent, it also features a excellent bar with appetizers and perfect for socializing. Book yourself any play for the night and enjoy!
