Huron Country Playhouse

Mainstage

Located in a country setting, just minutes from Grand Bend's famous "strip" and the sparkling shores of Lake Huron, the Huron Country Playhouse is the perfect spot to experience summer theatre.

There are 650 seats in the mainstage auditorium and 300 seats in the South Huron Stage auditorium. Infrared hearing and wheelchair access are available to patrons who require special assistance.

Less than an hour's drive from London, Strathroy, and Sarnia, the main auditorium is housed in a spacious century-old barn. The beautifully landscaped grounds and gazebo are ideal for a picnic before or after the show.

Our popular live in-person 50/50 raffle is back for each performance!  Tickets are available for purchase upon arrival at the theatre. Tickets are available for purchase upon arrival at the theatre. Winning ticket numbers from each performance can be found at here

Additionally, we invite you to play along with our monthly online 50/50 raffle, where there’s a chance to win a huge jackpot. These tickets may be purchased at drayton5050.com.

South Huron Stage (formerly Playhouse II)

Located on the same property as the Huron Country Playhouse Mainstage, theatregoers cherish their visits to our charming second stage in Grand Bend. While maintaining its intimate feel, South Huron Stage boasts a state-of-the-art theatre experience including terrific sightlines and 300 comfortable seats.

Come for the day and plan your theatre outing to include a stop at Lake Huron's renowned beaches, a visit to our quaint Gift Shoppe, a meal at a great local restaurant, or bring a picnic and lunch in our beautiful courtyard.

When visiting the Huron Country Playhouse, 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.

52 years ago Huron Country Playhouse Guild was formed to assist and support the theatre, both financially and operationally. Huron Country Playhouse Guild Members are extremely dedicated volunteers who raise money exclusively for the use of Huron Country Playhouse. The Shoppe is at the heart of their fundraising efforts and draws numerous talented artisans to their door.  From precious hand-crafted jewellery, to beautiful ‘made with love’ baby clothes, to their famous ‘attic treasures’ and everything in between, every piece tells a story and adds a bit of charm to their shelves. Most certainly there is something for everyone!  Currently, they are excited to introduce some theatre-related merchandise for sale.  While enjoying the theatre today, please drop into this delightful Shoppe to browse through exquisite items on display. 

The Guild is always looking for new vendors with new and exciting ideas. Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or an emerging talent, and would like to have the opportunity to display and have your creations sold in their Shoppe, please contact Anne, the Shop Manager at ladybarnstone@gmail.com to discuss details.
