One of my favourite things, are visiting the theatre in PD. I have loved every show that I have seen! Screwball comedy last week was a hoot! Totaly sold out. Warmly recommended!

We went from Barrie to Port Dover and back to Barrie in one day to see this play, and it was well worth it. A very funny play about newspaper reporters.. well worth seeing!

Excellent acting and music! Have gone to a few shows here, including Burlesque! Have a glass of wine before the show, seats are comfortable up or down. They have a variety of shows to choose from.

We saw The Birds and The Bees to a full house. It was extremely well done, and incredibly funny, and slightly risqué. I recommend the theatre and the play if you can see it somewhere else
