KickstArt Theatre Productions: Aspiring for excellence, committed to creativity.

KickstArt is a committed non-profit company, dedicated to enhancing Durban’s cultural scene with diverse and quality theatrical productions.

Durban loves them, they’re perfect…and let’s hope they never change cities, because Greg King and Steven Stead’s award-winning KickstArt Theatre Company is as much an essential and cherished part of Surf City as dips in the Ocean, slides at uShaka and gliding up the Moses Madiba Stadium arch.
