Visited 1000 islands before this but somehow missed this gem. An old firehouse by the lake turned into a theatre house. Great performance and beautiful atmosphere for a theatre.. Will go again.

We visited the playhouse on our stayover in gananoque and the people were polite and well accommodating we enjoyed the history talk of the town and took some great pictures to bring home. We are definitely returning again for a summer theoretical display

This is the 3rd performance we have seen in the 2015 season...and it keeps getting better and better. Last evening we saw B&B...the talent these two actors displayed was nothing short than Academy Award worthy.

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.
