About Us

The Masque Theatre is a unique historic space, a gorgeous little theatre that you will find on Muizenberg Road in Cape Town, South Africa. The theatre is 61 years old, and is both home to many of the community theatre societies in Cape Town, and a professional venue-for-hire: a favourite spot amongst our Southern Peninsula audiences.

Coming Soon...

This Moment

It’s opening night... A troupe of performers are backstage,  desperately awaiting the magic about to come alive on stage, and in their own lives. Their sacrifice to be part of this demanding world is great, yet they return to theatre again, and again. Sometimes all you have is This Moment.


We all just want to love and to be loved in return. This is a story about the enduring love we have for the theatre and the hopes and dreams we have for our lives.

What we were doing during #Lockdown...

Still going! www.backabuddy.co.za/masque backabuddy.co.za/masque


Our fundraising campaign is heading past R120,000! Thank you everyone, these funds are absolutely vital to our community theatre's survival through this time.


Thespians come play! Bertie's Ghostlights



Our initiative birthed out of the #Lockdown: we're creating live in-the-moment theatre experiences, with the key element being friendly human interaction. Sign up below to receive a weekly event schedule, with a range of theatre-linked events - including our "In Conversation" series, where we have a genuine 'chat' with  different theatre luminaries, such as Pieter-Dirk Uys and UK Theatre star Lucian Msamati.

Click the link to sign up: Bertie’s Ghostlights

The name Bertie's Ghostlights is in honour of the Masque Theatre founder and original benefactor, Bertie Stern - and the age-old theatre tradition of Ghostlights in a dark theatre "We'll be back!"


Coming As Soon As We Can...


Sister Act - The Musical



The 2020 cast and crew of Sister Act waiting in the wings for when we reopen our doors and can hit rehearsals and invite guests again, watch this space!


Shakespeare's Twelfth Night - One day, one day...


  Update here: until rehearsal in person is safe, the cast can do no more online, and rehearsals are paused for now: but we have heard they are rehearsing in secret. Sometimes you just get a cast who are dedicated to each other and to bringing a show to life. Holding thumbs we can set you a date soon, CTP! Constantiaberg Theatre Players have been rehearsing Twelfth Night digitally, sharing their work with the Berties Ghostlight Members with invitations to an open rehearsal, and an evening of prepared selected scenes. Thank you to Director Barbara Basel, and cast. All are raring to go as soon as safety allows, here's a snap of the shared scenes evening:



Looking forward to seeing this come to life on stage!
