Special Events

The Playhouse at play…
Several times per year, the Playhouse hosts colourful special events to benefit the theatre, assisted by creative volunteers, entertainers, and generous local businesses.

They range from casual BBQs on the deck (what better way to spend a warm summer evening on the river), to a shore-side Fish Fry capturing the marine spirit, and elegant gala evenings which inspire and excite.
