Die Johannesburgse Afrikaanse Toneelkomitee (The "Johannesburg Afrikaans Theatre Committee") was a ad-hoc semi-professional theatre company in Johannesburg.

In 1962, the committee, chaired by Siegfried Kuschke, was responsible for staging the Afrikaans language production during the inauguration festivities for the Johannesburg Civic Theatre. The play was Die Besoek van die Ou Dame (Durrenmatt, translated by Bartho Smit). Directed by Fred Engelen, it featured Anna Neethling-Pohl and Jan Schutte in the leading roles. Designs and set were by Kobus Esterhuysen.
