Huron Country Playhouse Announces 2024 Season

October 5, 2023

Drayton Entertainment's Artistic Director Alex Mustakas today announced the 2024 Season for the Drayton Festival Theatre

“This is an exciting season filled with entertaining shows for theatregoers at every stage of life,” says Mustakas. “From hit Broadway musicals like Fiddler on the Roof and Jersey Boys, to laugh-a-minute comedies, and the return of the annual panto, there really is something for the whole family!”

The Huron Country Playhouse is located at RR1, 70689 B Line. Grand Bend, NOM 1T0.

Mainstage

The 2024 Season on Ontario’s West Coast will open with a time-honoured favourite. Fiddler on the Roof has touched audiences around the world with its winning combination of humour, warmth, and honesty. The production features a magnificent score full of classic songs like “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” “If I Were A Rich Man,” and “Tradition,” making it one of the most acclaimed musicals in North American theatre history. Fiddler on the Roof runs June 12 to June 30.

Next up is the Tony®, Grammy®, and Olivier Award-winning musical, Jersey Boys. This international phenomenon takes you behind the scenes – and behind the music – of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons as they work their way to the heights of stardom, thrilling audiences with electrifying performances of chart-topping hits like “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Sherry,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Too Good To Be True,” and more. Don’t miss this worldwide phenomenon that will leave you exclaiming, “Oh, What a Night!” This Broadway blockbuster runs from July 10 to August 3.

The feel-good blockbuster Priscilla Queen of the Desert the Musical will end the 2024 Season with a bang, running August 15 to September 1. With a spectacular array of outrageous costumes, flamboyant choreography, and a hit parade of dancefloor favourites, including “It’s Raining Men,” “I Will Survive,” and many more, this wildly fresh and funny musical is a journey to the heart of FABULOUS!
