Theatre in St. Jacobs!

St. Jacobs is home to two professional live theatres. The St. Jacobs Country Playhouse is conveniently located on Benjamin Road at the northern edge of Waterloo, in the heart of St. Jacobs' Market District. Operating year-round, the distinctive venue features post and beam construction associated with traditional Mennonite architecture. With 400 seats, the theatre auditorium has a raked layout that affords each seat a fantastic view of the stage.

The St. Jacobs Schoolhouse Theatre is located in the heart of the old town, adjacent to Canada's original Home Hardware Store and just steps away from the bustling main street. Set in a renovated 1867 village schoolhouse, this unique venue is high on charm with only 100 seats and an intimate atmosphere where you can enjoy a beverage at your table that's positioned just a few feet from the stage.
