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
