Ko Shan Theatre is a modern building housing performance facilities located within a lush park in Hung Hum, in Kowloon, Hong Kong. It was completed in 1996 and replaced the 3,000-seat semi-open air theatre which originally occupied the site since 1983. The former venue was rendered useless during inclement weather and suffered severe noise problems, prompting the government to replace it with an all-weather facility.
Today, the Ko Shan Theatre is a popular venue for local Cantonese opera, concerts and other entertainment and cultural performances. It features a 1,031-seater theatre equipped with state-of-the-art sound system, computerized stage, lighting system and backstage support facilities.
It also includes a 40-square-metre Committee Room with tables, chairs, white board, and sound and video projection equipment, a suitable venue for conferences and meetings. Two Rehearsal Rooms, both 72-square-metre in size and equipped with mirrored wall, ballet barres, sprung floor, and upright piano, is ideal for music and dance rehearsals, workshops and classes. In 2013 an Annex Building was built to provide additional space and facilities, including a 600-seater theatre, a resource centre for Cantonese opera and a restaurant.
The Ko Shan Theatre is located at 77 Ko Shan Road, Hung Hom, Kowloon. It is open daily, from 9am to 11pm.
