Went with the whole family to go and watch my daughter performing with her school. Place is well looked after. Snacks and drinks are not expensive at all.

It’s sad to see how this place is going downhill! Maintenance is not up to par and it feels dirty in the theater.

We attended the Capitol Singers show on 6 May 2018 which was fantastic but the venue was a real disappointment. Firstly no assistance is offered to find the disabled parking. Some of the parking staff does not even know what disabled parking means. On Sundays...More

Check out performances here if visiting Pretoria. We enjoyed a fantastic dance performance - Qaphela Caesar. The dancers were simply brilliant.

Visited the State Theater on several occasions. Very good shows including ballet, musicals and operas. Ample parking and friendly service at bars and service counters. Comfortable seating.

Lovely place to watch international standard ballets and productions. Plenty of safe underground parking but getting there is not great. I tend to visit other theatres when shows are late at night. Still has the good old "theatre" feel!

Situated in the Pretoria CBD the venue is still classy and you should enjoy your visit in the knowledge that you car is safe in the underground parking where there are ample guards on duty. On this particular visit we enjoyed a top class ballet...More
