An interdisciplinary unit run in association with UCT's Drama Department, the Little Theatre is situated on the University's Hiddingh Campus in central Cape Town.
Aside from providing theatre spaces and facilities for theatre research for departments within UCT, the Little Theatre also provides production opportunities for theatre, film and television companies and community groups. As a production house, the Little Theatre co-ordinates a dynamic programme of classical, contemporary and experimental student productions throughout the academic year.
At times the Little Theatre has also worked in partnership with the SA Museum, the SA National Gallery and many of the professional theatres and clubs in the city. Aside from the student works staged there, the theatre is hired out to professional companies and amateur dramatic societies. International theatre companies are also invited to perform on the campus.
Little Theatre facilities include a scenery workshop, a costume wardrobe, and furniture and properties stores. In addition to staging productions, the Little Theatre serves as an informal resource for past students and members of the public needing theatre information.
