The Masque Theatre is a vibrant, community driven theatre situated in the heart of Muizenberg in Cape Town.
Annually, The Masque plays host to a wide variety of live productions of different genres – both community and professional productions. As a registered Non-Profit Organisation; The Masque strives to make theatre accessible to all – from both an onstage, backstage and an audience perspective.
The Masque was opened in 1959 by a local attorney, Bertie Stern. Stern had a vision to provide a platform for both amateur and professional performers, regardless of their social or political situation at that time. When The Masque opened, it was one of the only theatres in Cape Town that was open to people of all ethnic backgrounds.
With two venues that are used for various productions: the main theatre, seating 170 people and the theatre foyer stage which seats 60. The Masque is wheelchair friendly, has a fully licensed bar and refreshments are available before shows and during intervals.
