Mr Baskett (fl 1860s) was a Cape Town building contractor

He was responsible for revamping the Sefton Parry's original Theatre Royal in Harrington Street, Cape Town for H.J. le Roy, who had hired the theatre.

The company Tuppen and Stonestreet were the architects and the decorator was the set designer R.S. Cooper. The Le Roy and Duret company utilised the revamped venue from 29 January 1866 till 13 July 1868, when the building burnt down.
