The primary mission of the Cape Town Fringe is to grow audiences – to entice and encourage as many people into our theatres as possible because we know that if you’ve experienced the magic of live performance once, there’s a very good chance you’ll come back for more. And that’s good for everyone.

To do that. we’ve put together an exciting, innovative and fresh programme of some of the best theatre and music you’ll see on stage in South Africa – all at very affordable prices (tickets range from R40 to R100). And if that’s not enough to tempt you, we’ve made Mondays even more attractive by offering tickets to ALL performances at half price. That’s right – you only pay 50%.
