Established in May 2007, The Teatro at Montecasino is one of the top entertainment venues in Johannesburg, featuring the best musical, dance, drama, and comedic productions in South Africa.

Other features include Disney Musical, The Merchants of Bollywood, Chicago – The musical, Beauty and the Beast, and High School Musical – Live on Stage. There are wheelchair friendly seats available.
