About Theatre in the Park

'This tree or not this tree?' is the question of most Shakespearian students and fans scouting out a pre-theatre picnic spot in the Maynardville Park. Home to Maynardville Open-air Theatre, this leafy venue under a roof made only of stars took to fame with captivating annual productions of Shakespeare's plays (Shakespeare-in-the-Park). Sit on the lawn and sip from your picnic goblet or play hide-and-seek with Shakespeare's fairy cast in this 500m² magic woods.

The 720 seater wooden outdoor theatre shares the unique performance platform with theatre's favourite rhyming couplets and ballet's famous romantic couples. Participate in thickening plots while characters develop or spectate in graceful movements while ballerinas développé.

The classical arts have an open-air stage with Mother Nature as the lead set designer. White floor length tutus are set against luminescent green leaves and humble period costumes fall against bare bark. CAPAB (Cape Provincial Arts Board) and CTCB (Cape Town City Ballet) display commitment to creating world-class open-air tributes to live staged theatre and dance works. Ribbons and rhyme and all things sublime are celebrated at Maynardville's forested stadium of the arts.
