The Catalina Theatre was one of the first businesses to open its doors at Durban's iconic Wilson's Wharf. Since its inception the theatre has sought to stage a variety of artistic works with the specific aim and intention of bringing these new artitsic works (and the artists involved) into the public eye - an extremely difficult and challenging task. The company was registered as a Not For Profit Company in 2006 so that it can better serve its development goals. We are incredibly grateful to RCL Foods, Themi Venturas, Ethekwini Municipality and the Department of Arts and Culture KZN for the funding that they give. Without their assistance, the shear cost of operating a theatre in the city would ensure the company's closure and we surely wouldn't be able to do as much good for the artists and the arts industry in Durban.
