It 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 privatized and renamed in March 2001, when the Cape Performing Arts Board (CAPAB) was dissolved. The Artscape Theatre Centre is also the home of Fine Music Radio and oversees the Maynardville Open-Air Theatre in Wynberg, Cape Town. It also houses the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra and the Cape Town Opera (en)
