Accommodation near Baxter Theatre

The Baxter Theatre is a Cape Town institution. You will find it on the main road, in Rondebosch, on the same property as the University Of Cape Town's Performing Arts school. It owes its existence to a benevolent Dr W Duncan Baxter, who left a large sum of money to the university with the purpose of building a theatre which would 'develop and cultivate the arts in Cape Town and adjacent districts' (Dr Baxter's own words).

It was designed by Jack Barnett and opened its doors for the first time in 1977 and despite living through it, never paid heed to Apartheid's segregation policies. Today, the Baxter Theatre prides itself on hosting the best, cutting-edge South African productions, encompassing all genres from theatre and opera to comedy, dance and recitals. The centre also aims to host relevant, exceptional international performances.

In order to do justice to the various performances, the Baxter Theatre consists of various venues; the main theatre, the concert hall, the Golden Arrow studio theatre, the flipside and the Masambe theatre. These venues are all housed within the same building but their sizes and acoustics vary.

The Baxter Theatre also has a vegetarian Indian-themed buffet restaurant which is open for lunch and dinner. There is also a bar where you can enjoy a glass of wine or a beer before a performance or during interval.

The Baxter Theatre book stall is open before, after and during the intervals of shows and sells books and plays relating to the performances on circuit as well as themes relating to theatre and South Africa in general.

The Baxter Theatre is wheel chair friendly, and they have introduced special technology for those hard-of hearing. Should you require any of these services, a quick phone call before the show is all it takes.
