A [[Dutch]] term equivalent to [[Amateur Theatre]]. Used as a generic term, but also as the name for a specific venue.
#REDIRECT[[Liefhebbery Toneel]]
==As general term==
The Dutch name for "Amateur Theatre". In adapted form, i.e. as  [[Liefhebbery Toneel]], this was adopted by early [[Afrikaans]]. Later [[Afrikaans]] began to use [[Amateur Toneel]] or [[Amateur Teater]] as terms in general use.
== A Cape Town theatre ==
The name  [[Liefhebbery Tooneel]] was given to a theatre which the amateur company [[Tot Nut en Vermaak]]  opened in Hope Street, Cape Town  in 1825, as an alternative venue to the [[Afrikaansche Schouwburg]]. It was this society's exclusive venue until 1834 (with the exception of sporadic appearances by English companies). Later the children’s dramatic society [[Tot Oefening en Vermaak]] played there (from 1835-1836) and from 1834 to 1838 the venue was also used by [[C.E. Boniface]]'s [[Vlyt en Kunst]]. From 1837, [[Tot Oefening en Vermaak]] played there.
It was later known as both the [[Hope Street Theatre]] and (from 1846, when it was overhauled) the [[Victoria Theatre]], under which names it continued to exist until 1851. It was also briefly known as the [[Sans Souci Theatre]] in 1848, when [[Theatre de L’Union]] played there. The '''Liefhebbery Tooneel''' should however not be confused with another venue also situated in Hope Street, and briefly used in 1849, which was known as [[Haupt’s Warehouse]] or [[Haupt's Theatre]].
