What makes Drayton Entertainment awesome?Drayton Entertainment: The question should be What doesn’t make Drayton Entertainment awesome? First and foremost, we present professional world class theatre – musicals, comedies, and family favourites, like Disney’s Beauty and the Beast! Secondly, our artists have impressive resumes with many working on Broadway, and other well-known stages across North America. Lastly, all our shows are available at an affordable price point – only $46 for adults and $25 for kids!
The Dunfield Theatre Cambridge is located in historic downtown Galt, right near the 401. This new state-of-the-art theatre opened in 2013 and operates year round. In addition to a 500-seat theatre auditorium, the building also houses the construction, costume and props shops as well as the administration for Drayton Entertainment. The theatre is surrounded by quaint shops and restaurants. In 2017, the season includes big musicals like Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat and Rock of Ages as well as some fun comedies like, One for the Pot.
If you travel up the highway, you will find two more of our theatres – the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse and the Schoolhouse Theatre in St. Jacobs are both located near the famous St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market and historic St. Jacobs Village. If you drive a little further into the country, you’ll find the venue that started it all – the Drayton Festival Theatre. It was the very first theatre in our journey to becoming a seven-stage theatre company that puts on over 800 performances a season! The 1902 renovated Opera House and former Town Hall entertains audiences during the summer months with shows like the hit Canadian comedy Harvest and the blockbuster musical, Million Dollar Quartet.
Even though our other three theatres aren’t in Waterloo Region, we think they are pretty awesome too! You can see the same top quality productions at the Huron Country Playhouse and Playhouse II in Grand Bend and King’s Wharf Theatre in Penetanguishene. They are both near the water and are perfect destinations for day trippers, vacationers and locals in the summer season.
Drayton Entertainment staff are always working to ensure every member of our audience has a wonderful experience, from the moment you walk into our theatres until you leave. World Class theatre right in your backyard. Not many communities can say that!
