The 360-seat Thousand Islands Playhouse Springer Theatre on the waterfront is the original Playhouse, our flagship theatre. This renovated heritage venue, built in 1909, was originally the Gananoque Canoe Club, and features two of the longest decks in the region from which theatre guests have a panoramic view of the St. Lawrence River and many of the Thousand Islands.
The Springer Theatre lobby retains the vintage cottage-style craftmanship of the canoe club – while the rest of the building has undergone several renovations to create a modernized, air-conditioned auditorium featuring a proscenium-style stage.
Entrances to the Springer Theatre itself are on both the upper level and shore level. A licensed concession can be found in the Springer Lobby and the Springer Box Office opens two hours prior to Springer Theatre shows.
Limited wheelchair seating is available by reservation, as well as infrared hearing devices. The Springer Theater has a level entrance and accessible washroom on the upper deck.
