The H.B. Thom Theatre is the name of a purpose built University theatre in Stellenbosch.

Originally built for the University of Stellenbosch Drama Department in 1966 at the behest of the then head of the department, Prof Fred Engelen, the venue was named after the incumbent rector and vice-chancellor of the University, Prof H.B. Thom[1], in recognition of his support.

In 2016-2017 the theatre complex was revamped and enlarged, and in 2018 it was renamed the Adam Small Theatre Complex, after the South African poet, playwright and academic, Adam Small.
