Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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 have been enjoying the productions at the Huron Country Playhouse for many years. In the year 2000 the theatre joined forces with Drayton Entertainment and the quality of productions increased dramatically. The shows are run by true theatre professionals and the quality for your price of admission simply cannot be beat. The main stage has seating for 650 while the Playhouse II can seat 350.

The country setting is quite nice. As well, you will find a bar, snacks, gift shop, washrooms, and ample parking.

I consider this a must experience for anyone visiting the Grand Bend area (and for residents of the area who have not yet had the pleasure of seeing one of these great shows).

Stopped by and caught the play "Footloose."

Now I hated that they re-did the movie but I have to say this play was a lot of fun and the actors really sold it.

As always the grounds were clean and bright, the playhouse was well kept and the bathroom and concessions clean.

Great job!

We've been to the Huron Country Playhouse several times; last week seeing Legends of Rock 'n Roll. Again, another professional performance. Like anything you would see in Toronto without the traffic and parking. High calibre entertainment, reasonably priced in a great setting. What more could anyone want. Also not a bad seat in the house. Looking forward to their lineup for next summer.

My wife and I attended on Aug 28th to see "Legends" and I must admit I was impressed ( hard to do I have been told). The facility speaks for itself, parking is more than ample and they even run a 50/50 draw as well, so you MIGHT get some of your money back if you win. As each show is different I won't rate this one but it seems like they are all good. Prices were equal to the Grand Theatre in London so perhaps a bit high for a "country" show, but we enjoyed it anyway.

We enjoyed a recent production. Talented performers, good seats, lots of parking. Come early though as it seemed to take a while to get everyone in.
