About
Located in a picturesque country setting, the Huron Country Playhouse is just minutes from the shores of sparkling Lake Huron in the heart of Ontario's West Coast. This popular vacation destination is full of charm and endless possibilities to discover breathtaking beaches, culinary delights, outstanding accommodations, unique shopping and countless recreational pursuits. In 2011 the Huron Country Playhouse celebrated its landmark 40th Anniversary with an ambitious $4.0 million capital infrastructure expansion and improvement project. Visitors to the theatre can see the upgrades to the front-of-house including new washrooms, lobby, refreshment bar, box office, and gift shop operated by the Huron Country Playhouse Guild, a community-based organization comprised of 90 volunteers.There are 650 brand new theatre seats in the mainstage, and the Playhouse II has been completely renovated, increasing from 150 chairs to a fully raked 300 seat auditorium. Infrared hearing and wheelchair access are available to patrons who require special assistance. A visit to the Huron Country Playhouse takes less than an hour from Stratford, London and Sarnia.

I attended the theatre to see The Sound of Music with my daughter (5yrs) it was outstanding! The performance captured our full attention for the entire show. The harmonies, solos and dancing were perfection! The performers never missed a beat and they paid attention to every fine detail. Impressive is an understatement. Thank you!

We saw the Sound of Music last night. It was amazing. All their voices were beautiful. The sound was excellent . The acting was awesome. All the actors sang and danced fantastic. The stories was well put together. And set production was first class. We'll worth the 2 hour drive.

The Sound of Music was fabulous. All the seats in the Main Stage are great. You can't go wrong watching a play or musical. The acoustics were marvelous. I can't say enough

The Sweet Delilah Swim Club was an amazing theatrical experience. Very well written & the actors were spectacular. I highly recommend this play, especially for friends to see together.
The Huron County Playhouse was the perfect venue

My 3 girlfriends and I truly needed the belly laughs that The Sweet Delilah Swim Club provided to us yesterday afternoon.
The acting was fantastic and each character we identified with and even picked ourselves out !! It was the perfect play to attend as we have been gathering at a cottage for the past few years now and it is our tradition for a few days in September. We always look forward to our getaway....
Our seats were excellent, comfy and lots of leg room and the sound was good..a few times Bernadette spoke while the audience was still laughing but she got her point across!!

We have been coming to the Playhouse Theater for many yrs. My daughter worked there when she was about 12 yrs old and she would help people find there seats. Later she ran the booth selling snacks etc. Because she worked there they would give us free tickets and that is how I started to enjoy your shows. That would make it 45 yrs I have been coming to HCP. Your shows match any shows in the large cities and I intend to enjoy them for as long as I can. Thank you so much for the many hours of entertainment. Nancy Ducharme

We went to see the Sound of Music this past weekend and it was awe inspiring. The singers and dancers were very very good. The main actress playing Maria was so full of joy it resounded throughout the performance. The children were excellent actors and singers. The rest of the performers were equally talented. Worth every penny to see all this amazing talent in Grand Bend.

The depth of talent on stage is truly incredible - and the fact that it is right here in our own backyard in Huron County makes it even more special!

The play was just what my girlfriends and I needed after the long Covid drought of culture and fun. The 5 actors were fantastic and had wonderful timing and the play was very well written. Tons of laughs and by the end a few tears. I think the actors had almost as much fun as the audience. 5 stars.....
