Private Amateur Company
The Private Amateur Company was was the name given to two amateur theatrical companies active in Cape Town in the 19th century.
The Private Amateur Company 1834
The Private Amateur Company 1847
In 1847 there is another reference to a company of this name, though it is also named English Private Theatricals. The company seems to have consisted of Dutch-speakers and with A. van Breda as secretary, which performed three times in English in the Roeland Street Theatre. However it is possibly the same company.
See further English Private Theatricals for this company.
