The Lyric

Johannesburg’s Luxurious Theatre

The luxuriously styled 1100-seat Lyric theatre in Johannesburg is reminiscent of the opulence of the world's great opera houses with its plush fittings and rich atmosphere. The Lyric has already established itself as one of Johannesburg’s top entertainment venues, presenting world-class theatre, local and international musicians, ballet performances, comedy shows and much more.

We look forward to welcoming you at The Lyric with:

  • Charming and elegant hosts 
  • Lifts and escalators to stalls – level foyer
  • Stalls – level foyer with 2 bars and merchandise outlet
  • Balcony – level foyer with 2 bars and VIP catering for royal boxes

The theatre welcomes families but please note any age restrictions stipulated. Parents can use booster seats at all shows, which are available on request.

If your enjoyment of a show is hindered for any reason, please bring it to the attention of any of our staff on duty at the time who will endeavour to rectify the problem.

The Lyric Theatre encourages you to tell us about your experience, so if you have any comments, please contact us and let us know on GRCTheatreManagement@tsogosun.com

Wheelchairs and lifts

There is one lift at The Lyric which goes to the first (stalls) level and is located next to the elevators. For detailed information and for the booking of wheelchair facilities please contact Box Office

Facilities for the hearing impaired

We’re very proud to offer facilities for the hearing impaired to enjoy our shows. Seats purchased in rows N - U in the stalls and AA – BB in the balcony allow access to the Oticon loop system for those patrons wearing hearing aids, which enables customers with a hearing impairment to fully enjoy all performances.

Most hearing aids have a tele-loop option. This is particularly useful in public places such as churches, theatres and airports, where a tele-loop system transmits a sound signal directly to the hearing aid. In our case, the sound signal is fed directly off the sound desk to the hearing aid allowing users to appreciate shows on an equal footing with hearing patrons.

Box Office

The Box Office is open between the hours of 10h00 and 18h00 Mondays to Saturdays and Sundays from 11h00 – 16h00, and to 21h00 on all show nights.

Tickets can be paid for by cash or credit card in person, or by credit card over the phone.

For box office bookings, please call +27 11 248 5168 ⁄ 5229 or email goldreef.boxoffice@tsogosun.com

For group and corporate bookings, please call +27 11 248 8957 or email goldreef.boxoffice@tsogosun.com
