Huron Country Playhouse Announces Sensational 2024 Season

October 5, 2023

Smash Hit Broadway Musicals, Heartwarming Comedies, and Family Favourites Set to Lift Spirits in 2024

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – The Huron Country Playhouse has announced its 2024 Season, featuring six productions on its two stages. Blockbuster musicals, delightful comedies, and family favourites will be on stage June 12 to September 1.

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


The 2024 Season on Ontario’s West Coast will open with a time-honoured favourite. Fiddler on the Roof is the heartwarming story of fathers and daughters, husbands and wives, and life, love and laughter, with a book by Joseph Stein, music by Jerry Bock, and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. 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. Jersey Boys is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Ellice, with music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe.  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 musical Priscilla, Queen of the Desert the Musical will end the 2024 Season in style, running August 15 to September 1. Based on the Latent Image/Specific Films Motion Picture distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., it is adapted for the stage by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott. Priscilla is the story of three drag queens who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship. 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!

This feel-good musical is on stage June 12 to June 30.

Next up is the ageless comedy Doris and Ivy in the Home by Norm Foster, which is a riotous tale that will shatter your preconceived notions of what “senior living” ought to be. When retired prison guard Doris Mooney moves in to a retirement home and quickly befriends Ivy Hoffbauer, what follows is a testament to living each day to the fullest. This mirthful production is on stage from July 11 to July 28.

Close out the 2024 Season with Drayton Entertainment’s perennially popular family panto. Next year’s offering is Peter Pan: The Panto by Caroline Smith.
