We really enjoyed the beautiful setting on the water. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room temperature and seating were comfortable. We saw Tuesdays With Morrie. Gives you lots to think about. Well acted. Affordability priced compared to the city. Will definitely return.

Terrific play. 20+ characters played by the 2 male actors. A great mix of comedy and drama and possibly allowing the audience to understand that nowadays "being Gay is OK". A great playhouse with a choice of 2 theatres in a great location close to...More

Wonderful venue on the waterfront. Good selection of plays over the season. Theatre is well laid out to ensure good seats all around. Arrive by water or land and enjoy a great performance!

Hot humid summer night on the river. A/C was working fine. The show "Don't dress for Dinner" was entertaining. Great venue for a live performance.

My 14 year old granddaughter and I laughed our way through this spirited local version of Pirates and were delighted at the jibes about the Senate scandal. Spontaneous, professional, first class fun!

The play was delightfully light comedy. It is a small theatre so you are close and intimate. The theatre is a short walk from the town centre and close to many hotels. We love local theatre and this don't disappoint us. Hope you get to...More

We found out about the theater 30 minutes before showtime (thanks Stonewater Pub!). What a great show! We were very impressed with musicianship and acting. It was the highlight of our trip to Gananoque!

Beautiful little theatre! View to the stage is pretty good for all seats. We felt close to the actors. We saw the play 'Don't dress for dinner' and it was hilarious. We will certainly go back when in Gananoque.

In relation to the cruise, I really cannot answer that question. What I can say is that there is a lot of hills around the harbour to walk, and it may be an impediment to your happiness. However, I assume the cruises are... More
