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.

First time at this theatre, I was very impressed by the staff, theatre and comfy seats. I bought the tickets because of George Wendt, who was wonderful, but the entire cast were exceptional, congratulations! I have been to many Drayton performances and they are as good, if not better, than any downtown Toronto productions. I have never been disappointed. Look forward to the next performance.

We were mesmerized - outstanding acting by all! So fortunate to see George Wendt in such a dramatic, amazing, powerful way! No sitting at the end of the bar for "Norm" last night!
My husband has been in sales/sales management forever; we are both 60, and so many things about this rang true! Wow!
We got to the car last night through the rain and all 4 of us climbed in and said "Wow! What was that?" We have seen many Drayton productions and enjoyed them all - Death of a Salesman was amazing!

Thank Marebo

Thank you to the entire cast for your incredibly convincing performances and for quickly returning to the stage for the curtain call to bring us out of the darkness and back to the 21st century!

This was our first time seeing a production at St. Jacobs Country Playhouse.
What a fantastic experience!
We were drawn to the performance primarily because George Wendt was starring in it. However, we quickly found all the actors were right outstanding; the whole cast was fantastic!! The the set and costumes were wonderful - we were part of the moment!
George Wendt's performance was powerful and heart wrenching - a fantastic performance indeed.
We absolutely loved the intimate feeling of the St Jacobs Playhouse, and we will come back to Waterloo to enjoy another production!
Fantastic!!

Death of a Salesman - What a powerful, heartbreaking production. I couldn't get over how strong the whole play was from the performances to the set design to the direction. I never realized how strong a dramatic actor George Wendt could be but the same goes for the other cast members as well (Biff & Happy were highlights for myself). Everyone suited their characters to a tee & really made it feel like I was watching real people having real conversations on stage.

It's so nice to have such high-quality professional productions in an intimate small town setting. What a great night.
