Kalk Bay Theatre

Show Run: Mar 10th – Apr 10th 2010.

The Kalk Bay Theatre (KBT) is a 78-seater theatre located at 52 Main Road, Kalk Bay in the old Kalk Bay DR church, built in 1876 and is a heritage protected building.The building has been lovingly converted into an intimate theatre with a bar area serving light meals, snacks and drinks on the upper floor. KBT offers a unique night of entertainment. Theatre, sustenance and quality time with friends all under the same roof.

Patrons arrive from 18h00 and, after reserving their theatre seats, are directed upstairs to the bar area. The tables and chairs are set around a gallery, allowing customers to look down onto the stage below. Those wanting food can “cherry-pick” dishes off the menu allowing you to decide how much you want to spend/eat on the evening. Food is mainly served before the show but drinks and [by arrangement] some food is served after the performance. Patrons make their way down to the theatre when the show is due to start – drinks may be taken into the theatre but there is no service in the theatre during the show.

The menu is vegetarian friendly. Other specific dietary requirements will, wherever possible, be catered for provided advance warning is given. KBT is licensed. Corkage is charged at R20 / bottle.

The ground floor theatre has 78 comfortable seats crafted out of beech wood and modelled around the comfortable Morris chair. The theatre is a thrust stage with the audience on three sides. This allows for a very intimate theatrical experience. Shows run for four to eight weeks in the venue. Performances are from Wednesday to Saturday night [and sometimes Sundays as well] at 20h30 with “THEATRESPORTS” are resident at KBT every Tuesday evening at 20h30. Matinee performances can be arranged. The various shows are normally announced by email and on our website [www.kbt.co.za].

The venue is located at 52 Main Rd, Kalk Bay. Parking is available across the road in the municipal parking lot. For bookings check the information for each show as booking numbers can differ for specific shows or email bluebottle@iafrica.com.
