Hugo Theart receives a B.Drama degree from the University of Stellenbosch in 1997. Since then he has worked in all areas of the entertainment industry including managing live events, television and theatre.

Theatre highlights include Grafwater: There is life after jumping - a true story in 1999 (as producer, co-writer and lead actor—which won the De Kat Slurpie award for best newcomers at KKNK), Yerma in 2001 (producer), Onbekend in 2003 (director), Marthinus Basson’s Storm in 2007 (actor), Lawwe Geluide (translation of Noises Off, actor), As you like it (Maynardville Open Air Theatre 1999, actor) and Antony and Cleopatra (Maynardville Open Air Theatre 2010, assistant director).

Live Events / Television highlights include Kora All Africa Music Awards (International live broadcast 2000 from Sun City Superbowl, Production Manager), Skouspel 2001-2003 (Live concert with various artists at Sun City Superbowl, Production Manager), Nelson Mandela 85th Birtday Celebration (Sandton Convention Centre 2003, Assistant Stage Manager), Revlon Supermodel (Reality series on SABC3 2007, Production Manager – winner SAFTA Best Reality Series 2007) and most recently Fairlady Style Intern 2010 (Reality Series on MNET Series, Production Manager).

In 2009 he and director Marthinus Basson established the theatre production company TEATERteater. With Theart as producer, and Basson as director, they have already produced two highly acclaimed and award-winning productions: Manfred Karge’s Jacke wie Hose - in English as Man to Man and in Afrikaans as As die broek pas - and Marlene van Niekerk’s opera/cabaret Die kortstondige raklewe van Anastasia W.

Although Theart still works as a freelance production manager, actor, director and producer, his main focus is TEATERteater and the development of new productions and projects for the company.

Marli van Eeden, Hugo Theart KKNK 2020-08-20

"Vir die KKNK is dit ’n besonderse voorreg om deel te wees van ’n musiekreeks van dié gehalte en standaard. En as ek kyk na die reaksie van die mense wat reeds gekyk het, is dit ook ’n besonderse ervaring vir die gehore. Dit is wonderlik. Musiek is nodig in dié tye. En hierdie reeks bied dit op steroids!"

Mercy Kannemeyer, Hugo Theart, Amee Lekas Teater 2017-07-04

"In Suid-Afrika moet ons ook nooit ophou om unieke maniere te vind om sosiale kwessies aan te pak nie. Teater is vir mense ’n manier om genesing te vind. Mense kom teater toe om te ontvang en hulle soek nuwe antwoorde."

X+Y: "Die jong akteurs is vreesloos"

Henry Cloete, Hugo Theart 2013-01-25 "Die definisies is maar net ’n basiese beginpunt – die interaksie tussen die generasies is wat meer hier ter sprake is."

Marthinus Basson, Naomi Meyer, Hugo Theart 2012-08-15 "Lag en huil kom vanuit dieselfde plek. En Reza de Wet het dit baie goed verstaan en sy het dit die heel mooiste vasgevang in haar werk."
