Overview

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. With the exquisite Best Western Plus St. Jacobs Country Inn next door, and endless shopping within walking distance, a visit to the Playhouse is a memorable outing, whether you're coming from near or far.Operating year-round, the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse is a distinctive venue that features turn-of-the-century masonry and heavy timber accents associated with traditional Mennonite architecture. With 385 seats, the theatre auditorium has a raked layout that affords each seat a fantastic view of the stage.

Good music, interesting story, excellent singing and acting, especially by the leads. You can't miss with Drayton Festival musicals. Dinner beforehand or after (if a matinee) at Jack's is a good way to start or end.
