Drayton Festival Theatre

Brown Insurance logo Surrounded by rural countryside, a visit to the Drayton Festival Theatre offers a pleasant drive along quiet roads where common sights include farm-gate signs and roadside stands that will tempt you to stop and make an impromptu purchase of fresh produce, flowers and maple syrup. Occasionally you'll pass an Old Order Mennonite horse-drawn buggy that so eloquently reminds us of life's simple pleasures.

The Drayton Festival Theatre is a renovated 1902 Opera House, boasting wonderful acoustics. This former Town hall has a rich history of entertaining audiences with the finest talent in professional theatre.

Located only 35 minutes from Guelph and Kitchener-Waterloo, the Drayton Festival Theatre offers a scenic drive through rolling farmland and quaint villages.

When visiting the Drayton Festival Theatre, skip the line at intermission and pre-order your refreshments upon arrival. They will be waiting for you at a pre-determined spot, ready for your enjoyment. There will not be an in-person 50/50 raffle for each performance. We invite you to play along with our monthly online 50/50 raffle. Tickets may be purchased at drayton5050.com.

Rave Reviews about the Drayton Festival Theatre

“I love this theatre! — Part of the Drayton Entertainment theatres, this stately old building was the original Drayton Entertainment location. The organizers are to be commended for making changes that have made it more accessible and inviting. Every show has that Drayton quality guarantee. Local, economical, excellent entertainment. We are so lucky to have such great theatre in our area.” Gail L., Mitchell, August 2018

"Great Experience — On Aug. 24/18 took in a musical at the Drayton Theatre. First thing that impressed us was ample off street parking nearby. The venue had a large area for refreshments and for mingling before the performance. The musical was excellent with very experienced singer/dancers. Enjoyed the event very much." dalfredg, Meadford, August 2018

“Very Professional — The actors and musicians are as good as any I have seen or heard in Toronto or New York. The seats are comfortable and the staff is helpful and friendly. The price for tickets is more than reasonable for talent of such superb quality.” Don M., May 2018
