Capitol Theatre

The Cameco Capitol Arts Centre is a professional regional theatre located 1-hour east of Downtown Toronto where you will experience top quality productions and concerts in the historic and picturesque small town of Port Hope. Since 2013, under Artistic Director & General Manager Antonio Sarmiento the Capitol has won awards and recognition for embracing its historical status AND using innovative technologies in visual effects to create an enhanced live experience. Recent critically acclaimed stage productions utilizing these technologies include productions of “Disney’s Mary Poppins” and “Singin’ In The Rain”, “SNARL’D! The Rapunzel Panto” and our highly anticipated productions of “On Golden Pond”, “Crazy For You” and the global sensation “Mamma Mia!”. The Capitol has become a “must-see” Ontario destination that has partnerships with local restaurants, cafes, merchants, accommodations and more to offer a complete “experience” to our guests.

Incredible talent and stage design in my fav intimate theatre. The performance was so interesting and exciting it had us on the edge of our seats. It is a memorable show that goes well beyond its famous line: you can’t handle the truth. Tom Cruise, you gotta see your new competition.

St. Jacobs Schoolhouse Theatre

The St. Jacobs Schoolhouse Theatre is located in the heart of the old town, adjacent to Canada's original Home Hardware Store and just steps away from the bustling main street. With unique gift shops, excellent restaurants, museums and galleries, as well as quaint country inns and B&Bs, the village of St. Jacobs is the perfect spot to spend a few days.Set in a renovated 1867 village schoolhouse, this professional theatre is high on charm. With only 100 seats and remarkable acoustics, the intimate atmosphere lends itself to cabaret-style performances, where you can enjoy a beverage at your table that's positioned just a few feet from the stage.

Port Stanley Festival Theatre

Reviewed By parney1329 - Bala, Canada

Revisited Port Stanley in JANUARY, because of our positive experience at this theatre in the summer last season. It is operated by community volunteers who are friendly and extremely helpful. My partner and I were seated one behind the other and the ticket office came to us prior to the show and offered us 2 seats together if we preferred. Fantastic customer service! The seats are comfortable too. Both performances were excellent and we will be back despite the long drive home to Muskoka.

This is a wonderful facility in which to watch shows. Every seat in the place provides good viewing. The place is spotlessly clean, lots of women's washrooms and intermission snacks. There is an elevator for diabled people. Unfortunately there is not enough parking and both times although arriving half an hour early, we have had to locate street parking that was not real close.

King's Wharf Theatre

Nestled within Discovery Harbour on Georgian Bay, the King's Wharf Theatre is a pleasantly rustic, 385-seat venue that offers all the comforts of a modern facility. Flanked by the historic buildings of a 19th-century British naval and military base, the theatre is located at the end of a beautiful boardwalk that looks on to the homeport of replica ships H.M.S. Bee and H.M.S. Tecumseth. A visit to the King's Wharf Theatre takes only 45 minutes from Barrie and Orillia, or just over an hour from Collingwood.

There are many excellent musicals around, all entertaining. But Come From Away eclipses them all. It’s not based on a fictitious story line, but on a real event. If that’s not enough, it’s one of those events that most of the audience members recall personally. “I remember what I was doing when...”. Add to that the amazing performances of the talented cast members, effortlessly transitioning from one character to another; the excellent musical score; the mood swings from laughter to tears and back again; the superb lighting changes; the random acts of kindness; and the fact it’s unabashedly Canadian. See it, and tell your friends!!
