As its name suggests, the Market Theatre was once a fresh fruit and vegetable market. Built in the early 1900s, most of the original architecture still exists as well as a lot of the original signs. Within the huge complex, other than the Market Theatre stages, there are a number of galleries and restaurants. The three theaters at the Market are the Main, Laager and Barney Simon. The venue stages all forms of production from drama, comedy, musical, community, South African to experimental theater. International actor John Kani is the managing trustee at the complex. Tuesday and Wednesday nights are usually cheaper than all other nights. There are various dining and drinking options within the Market Theatre complex. Check website for more details on current and upcoming events.
