We went to watch Sound of Music and the show was amazing.
There is ample parking under the artscape and very easy to navigate. If you have family members that walk slow or require assistance then arrive earlier as - depending where you park - it can take a while to get into the theatre.
Great seating which was comfortable.
Great acoustics - one of the best in the world and we have been to many shows.
The artscape had 4 bars open which was great as you didnt wait long to order drinks.
There are no hard spirits.
Great to see that no eating or drinking is allowed in the theatre.
There is a need to upgrade the look, aesthetics, seating & layout of the theatre.

The Sound of Music production was absolutely anazing and not only one of the best productions we have seen but certainly one of the best Sound of Music renditions! The theatre was excellent, great facilities before and after and parking was a breeze.

Underground parking a disaster. 40 min wait to exit car park at 10.40pm. An off putting experience.. A lovely show spoilt.

The parking experience is so bad, I'm not sure I'd come to Artscape again. This is really unfortunate for the amazing performers using this venue.

What a lovely show with amazing choreography and voices! High energy… wrong venue for the show. We were told we may not get up and dance on the second last song. We were airing on side, close to front , but may only give standing ovation at end of show. Disappointing experience. Even in London people are allowed to enjoy the show

No food to be had prior to the show! The show was excellent, but we couldn't have lunch before the show. A restaurant needs to be enticed into this space!

Having seen the previous performance at the Fugard , I must say that this one didn't come close to that . Quite frankly found the show quite boring . Choreography average and m the Fugard show .The other thing is that it has a 14A age restriction which basically means that under 14's need to be accompanied by an adult .Following the bed scene I noticed 2 families with younger kids walk out . I really don't think it was necessary to include this scene in the show . It isn't very tasteful,and in my opinion was totally inappropriate. .overall quite disappointing.

We went to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show which was performed at the Artscape. This is the first time I saw a live performances of the show.

Over the years the Rocky Horror Picture Show has become a "cult classic" and I was so excited to see the live performance. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of the highest-grossing film musicals ever made. In 1975 on a meager budget of $1.4 million, it ended up grossing over $140 million.

The live performance was wonderful. You could tell that the actors were really dedicated and worked hard in order to put in the show. The cast was very energetic and this was positively absorbed by the audience. In the end the performance deserved and received a standing ovation.

Even though Artscape is 48 years old this year it is still a beautiful theatre and contributes to a great and unique night out.

Can't wait for Swan Lake in 2020.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show on 18 December was absolutely excellent! An outstanding performance - well done all involved!

The Sparkling Wine that was flowing among the guests tempted us too, and at R65 per glass, we were really sad :-( This is over the top Artscape - you make your money from the tickets, the bar is a service - should not be such a ripoff!
