Cambridge: Drayton Entertainment announces its 2022 season

Monday, March 28, 2022

Our doors are open, the stage lights are on, and we’re thrilled to finally welcome you back to all our venues across the province. Be a tourist close to home, and rediscover LIVE theatre at the Drayton Festival Theatre in Drayton, Hamilton Family Theatre in Cambridge, Huron Country Playhouse in Grand Bend, King's Wharf Theatre in Penetanguishene, and St. Jacobs Country Playhouse and the Schoolhouse Theatre in St. Jacobs.

Our seven stages will be alive with memorable music, entertaining stories, joyful laughter, heartfelt applause, and maybe even a few tears as we celebrate the long-awaited chance to be together again sharing the magic of LIVE theatre. This season will look a little different with perhaps one or two fewer shows as we cautiously resume operations, but the top-quality entertainment experience and customer service you’ve come to expect remain the same.

This is a very special year for the Huron Country Playhouse as we celebrate 50 years of theatre in Grand Bend. Commemorating the longevity of this iconic summer theatre means that much more after all we’ve been through over the last few years, so make a special trip to Grand Bend – hit the beach, visit local restaurants, play a round of golf, tour the wineries nearby, stay over at one of the many first-rate area accommodations, and of course, see a show or two to mark this momentous anniversary.

We cannot thank you enough for your unwavering support. Although we continue to navigate this ongoing pandemic, we’re hopeful about the future. We know you love LIVE theatre as much as we do, so please join us in making wonderful memories this season. Years from now we’ll all talk about where we were, and what shows we saw, the year that theatre came back.

2022 Season Worry-Free Guarantee

Book your tickets knowing that flexible options are available if needed, for whatever reason. If your performance is cancelled or you are required to stay home due to COVID-19 symptoms, you may opt for a flexible ticket exchange, credit on your Drayton Entertainment ticketing account (which never expires), or a full refund.

Seating Capacity

The Government of Ontario has lifted restrictions for theatres, allowing for 100% capacity. However, we have surveyed our patrons a number of times over the last two years, and you've made it clear to us that you have different degrees of comfort. We want the return to live theatre to be as easy as possible for everyone. With that in mind, we have created show schedules with varying capacities and protocols that gradually change as the season progresses. Please choose the performance option that suits your needs best.

There are three performance options from May through July:

100% capacity with no proof of vaccination required

Limited capacity (33% reduced) with no proof of vaccination required

Limited capacity (33% reduced) with proof of vaccination required

There are two performance options from August through December:

100% capacity with no proof of vaccination required

Limited capacity (33% reduced) with no proof of vaccination required
