Huron Country Playhouse

Located in a picturesque country setting, the Huron Country Playhouse is just minutes from the shores of sparkling Lake Huron in the heart of Ontario's West Coast. This popular vacation destination is full of charm and endless possibilities to discover breathtaking beaches, culinary delights, outstanding accommodations, unique shopping and countless recreational pursuits.

In 2011 the Huron Country Playhouse celebrated its landmark 40th Anniversary with an ambitious $4.0 million capital infrastructure expansion and improvement project. Visitors to the theatre this season will be among the first to experience many substantial upgrades to the front-of-house including new washrooms, lobby, refreshment bar, box office, and gift shop operated by the Huron Country Playhouse Guild, a community-based organization comprised of 90 volunteers.

There are 650 brand new theatre seats in the mainstage, and the Playhouse II has been completely renovated, increasing from 150 chairs to a fully raked 300 seat auditorium. Infrared hearing and wheelchair access are available to patrons who require special assistance.

A visit to the Huron Country Playhouse takes less than an hour from Stratford, London and Sarnia.

Rave Reviews about the Huron Country Playhouse

"Great Theatre, Spectacular Show — The theatre itself is comfortable, the seats are all good, don't shy away from the balcony, the seats are great…. A must experience theatre, high caliber, easy parking, great theatre layout, no complaints.” KlandD, London, June 2016

“The Best Theatre Around — I have been going to Huron Country Playhouse for years. They never disappoint in their productions. They are top notch and reasonable in ticket prices. I would highly recommend Drayton Entertainment in Grand Bend. It's worth the drive!" SherriLynn, London, June 2016
