The Oakhurst Insurance George Arts Theatre is the home of the performing arts on The Garden Route.
The Oakhurst Insurance George Arts Theatre is probably one of the oldest buildings in George. Certainly with a history that can tell some amazing stories.
Since 2014, the local company Oakhurst Insurance took it upon themselves to help restore this heritage to its former glory. The revival of interest in the dramatic arts, and the support from companies and individuals of George, as well as the Department of Arts and Culture, has been vital in keeping this important Non-Profit Public Benefits Organisation alive. The legacy of one of South Africa’s last-standing community theatres continues to grow thanks to the support of the public.
The Oakhurst Insurance George Arts Theatre has a passion for the activity. From acting to hosting your function. Both amateur and professional actors grace the grand main stage itself. They even took the next step through the brand-new Outdoor Amphitheatre. Come and relax at the Backstage Lounge Café. The theatre also has many outreach programs that touch the lives of local George youth daily. The theatre is also an excellent venue for parties or weddings.
A number of full-length productions are held throughout the year, as well as concerts and plays featuring both local and international artists. The George Society of Arts’ December pantomime is a proud, popular holiday tradition for many families. Be sure to check out the calendar.
