Artscape Theatre Centre and Nico Malan Highscool is the main performing arts centre in Cape Town, South Africa. It was opened in 1971 and is located on reclaimed land in the Foreshore area. The complex includes:
- Opera House, seating 1,487 with provision for two wheelchairs.
- Theatre, seating 540 but more or less depending upon whether the pit is used.
- Arena Theatre, seating 140.
The Artscape Theatre Centre was formerly known as the Nico Malan theatre complex, after the former National Party administrator of the Cape Province, Dr Johannes Nicholas Malan, who initiated the project.
The centre was renamed in 1999, when the Artscape company replaced the former Cape Performing Arts Board
