Owner description: 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.

This venue for live theatre is excellent. There are no bad seats in the house. You can expect to experience professional theatre that is both entertaining and stimulating. The theatre season operates from early spring until late December. You can combine an evening of entertainment with a tour to the famous St. Jacob's Market on the following day.

Terrific venue to view live theater. All seats offer excellent views of the stage. Accoustics are excellent. Take the kids to see the fall pantomime for an excellent family experience.

My sister-in-law and brother managed to get us 2 complimentary tickets for opening of "Foursome" play.
Impressed with well-designed accessible theatre, good acoustics and excellent acting. Not very impressed with excessive crude humor.

Thank you for the positive review about St. Jacobs Country Playhouse and The Men`s Foursome. We are glad you were able to join us for an opening performance and enjoyed the venue in St. Jacobs. Some of our comedies and farces do have language/humor that may not appeal to everyone, so we do our best to offer a wide variety of productions such as musicals which focus more on the live music and professional dancing. We look forward to seeing you out in St. Jacobs for another great year of live theatre!

Went to see 'The Men's Foursome' by Norm Foster yesterday. Excellent! This is our second time seeing a play at eh Country Playhouse.
The staff was friendly, the seats comfortable, and the theatre clean.
You are invited to bring your 'treats' into the theatre while watching the play. How cool is that!?

Great little playhouse right beside our hotel. We sipped our wine while watching a very funny and enjoyable play. We ordered wine for the break when we entered thus ensuring it would be waiting for us when we emerged. Would definitely see another play here!
