Overview
More
Surrounded by rural countryside, a visit to the Drayton Festival Theatre offers a pleasant drive along quiet roads where common sights include farm-gate signs and roadside stands that will tempt you to stop and make an impromptu purchase of fresh produce, flowers and maple syrup. Occasionally you'll pass an Old Order Mennonite horse-drawn buggy that so eloquently reminds us of life's simple pleasures.The Drayton Festival Theatre is located in a historic 1902 Opera House that contains 375 seats and boasts marvellous acoustics with a main floor and balcony. This celebrated building once served as the Town Hall and housed the Fire Department, Library, Jail, and Council Chambers. With such a varied past, this completely modernized facility is a must-see!

We've seen three Drayton Entertainment productions so far this year, but this show is by far the best. I say that even though I'm not a fan of Rock and Roll music and am old enough to remember the first time I saw Elvis perform...More

The best thing about Drayton, easily reachable from various directions, even for timid drivers, is its theater. Seating is more comfortable than many theaters and there are good washroom facilities and spacious waiting areas. The comfort of patrons has obviously been well thought out. I...More

We drive from the GTA for many of the Drayton Theatre productions. I much prefer the smaller, more intimate theatre experience to that of the big theatres here in Toronto. I would give most productions we have seen through Drayton a 5! It is superior...More
