It opened on 14 February 1981 with Weiss Doubell as the first director of the theatre. It was later renamed simply the Roodepoort Theatre.

Popular for symphonic music and opera.

Theatre productions include:

1987: Hamlet (in Afrikaans) by PACT, directed by Francois Swart, with Marius Weyers and Sandra Prinsloo.

In 2014 the City of Johannesburg, as part of its ongoing Institutional Review, resolved that the two civic theatres, the Joburg Theatre and Roodepoort Theatre be integrated into a single theatre management company, Joburg City Theatres (JCT), to manage the functions and services of the two theatres. In 2014 the JCT would also take over management of the newly established Soweto Theatre.
