Drayton Festival Theatre

Surrounded by rural countryside, a visit to the Drayton Festival Theatre offers a pleasant drive along quiet roads where common sights include farm-gate signs and roadside stands that will tempt you to stop and make an impromptu purchase of fresh produce, flowers and maple syrup. Occasionally you'll pass an Old Order Mennonite horse-drawn buggy that so eloquently reminds us of life's simple pleasures.

The Drayton Festival Theatre is located in a historic 1902 Opera House that contains 375 seats and boasts marvellous acoustics with a main floor and balcony. This celebrated building once served as the Town Hall and housed the Fire Department, Library, Jail, and Council Chambers. With such a varied past, this completely modernized facility is a must-see!

Rave Reviews about the Drayton Festival Theatre

“Always Enjoy the Performances — We have been going to this theatre since it opened several years ago. There is not a bad seat in the house and the sound is great. The quality of the entertainment is first class and affordable. That is why this theatre has been so successful. We will continue to return.” Brent, Palmerston, June 2016

"Great Theatre — We have never been disappointed with a production at DFT. The performances are great and the actors very professional. The theatre environment is welcoming and comfortable. The neighbourhood has good restauraunts close by and many interesting shops. Lots of free parking available." Richard G, Listowel, June 2016
