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.

Saw a show, Sister Act, Amazing show, nothing like the movie but a quality production. Tremendous voices in entire cast. Very funny show the reaction of the audience was almost non stop applause and laughter.
The Playhouse is a wonderful venue with lots of parking and picnic areas. There is an on-site bar and gift shop. All the staff were friendy, helpful and knowledgeable.

I have been going to Huron Country Playhouse for years. They never disappoint in their productions. They are top notch and reasonable in ticket prices. I would highly recommend Drayton Entertainment in Grand Bend. It's worth the drive!

We stopped in to see a dance contest that travels around Canada. Lots of kids, lots of parents, and lots of everything in general but they handled it well. Great parking and accommodation for the event. Local talent as well as from out of town.

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!
