As long time Drayton theatre members we visit this theatre several times a season and are never disappointed. The seats are comfortable with great view lines and good leg room. The productions are consistently good. The cozy feeling of the theatre embraces the large productions making the shows a terrific experience for all.

If you want to spend 2.5 hrs at the Dunfield Theatre that are entertaining and take you to a place that you can simply relax and enjoy, then this is the show for you. These spirited and talented actors provide the opportunity to immerse yourselves in song and enjoy the characters that theyrepresent. Each personality provides enough of a glimpse of the person they bring to life and are so relatable. The environment is always relaxed and there is never a bad seat in the house. If you want to escape from the realities of the day enjoy this wonderful production. Alex Moustakas continues to have his finger on the pulse of his attendees. A wonderful show filled with young and talented people and please don't delay enjoy this show.

While we were a bit hesitant to head to the theatre with a 5, 7 and 9 year old, we decided, after several discussions with them about proper theatre etiquette, to "bite the bullet" and go to see "All Shook Up". The kids loved it (as did mom and dad) and they did us proud. There were only one or two other kids in the mostly sold out seats. There were booster seats available, suggesting that well behaved children are welcome at performances.
The venue is lovely and the show itself was wonderful--from the music to the performances to the costumes.
The only downside is that now my kids have been bitten by the theatre bug and are already asking when they can go see another play.
We look forward to a return trip next year.

We have seen some great entertainment at the Dunfield. The last one we saw was All Shook Up, and although we expected it to be really good, we were mesmerized, nice story, great acting, beautiful and powreful singing, and spectacular dancing.

We both said we have seen big Broadway plays that were excellent, but weren't as entertaining and as spirited as this play....it was pure FUN! By the way, the audience gave a huge well deserved stand up ovation at the end.

We have seen other great plays here and they have always been spectacular. Also, like the convenience, easy to get to, lots of parking, great theatre with excellent seating.

We are so fortunate to have Drayton Entertainment in our vicinity, with the production of such great theatre. The Dunfield is a wonderful setting for their endeavours, lots of parking, and restaurants close by for a quick bite, or a fine dining menu. The theatre is not huge, great lighting, and large area for intermission.
