Maynardville Open-Air Festival

17 January – 10 March 2019


Where: Maynardville Open-Air Theatre
When: Annually from mid-January to mid-March.
The annual Maynardville Open-Air experience is an essential experience, as is the preceding picnic in the park. Each year sees a different Bard-production brought to life on the tree-shrouded stage. Be sure to bring a blanket or two, as the open-air theatre gets quite chilly in the evenings.

This spectacular green wooded park has earned the reputation for one of the best-loved outdoor theatre venues in the Cape Region. It offers its patrons both a beautiful park and lake for pre-show picnics and drinks, as well as a unique wooded 700-seater theatre setting.  Cape Town’s annual Shakespeare under the stars has delighted audiences for 62 years but 2018 took the theatre tradition into a new era with an expanded classical experience called the Maynardville Open-Air Festival.  Showcasing a season of symphony, Shakespeare, ballet, comedy and more, the Festival runs from 17 January – 10 March 2019.
