The Maynardville Open-Air Theatre is situated in Maynardville Park, Wynberg.  The spectacular green wooded park has earned it the reputation as one of the best-loved outdoor theatre venues in the lush Southern Suburbs of the Cape Region.  It offers its patrons both a beautiful wooded park for pre-show picnics and drinks, as well as a unique wooded 700-seater theatre setting.  


Most famous for the annual Shakespeare-in-the-Park, it was started in 1956 by Cecilia Sonnenberg and Rene Ahrenson in conjunction with the City of Cape Town who purchased the property in 1949 as part of its park portfolio.  


Until the Covid-19 Pandemic, this tradition has been unbroken.  


VR Theatrical is very proud to have taken over the running of this amazing festival .
