Garrison Amateur Company
The Garrison Amateur Company is one of a number of names given to the theatre company of the Cape Town garrison after 1823 - as opposed to the rival civilian amateur company called the English Theatricals which arose in this time. The two apparently competed heavily with one another for audiences, also for use of the African Theatre.
