Welcome to The Village Playhouse

playhouse-image-3

The Bancroft Village Playhouse offers audiences intimate access to live music, theatre and film. Drawing on local talent as well as nationally recognized names and acts, the Playhouse is the heart of Bancroft’s Theatre District.

With monthly TIFF screenings and community events, there’s always something going on at the historic theatre that is by operated by Hospice North Hastings in partnership with St. Paul’s United Church.

This partnership makes the Playhouse different than most theatres. All of our proceeds support the restoration and up-keep of our historic theatre but we also use Playhouse proceeds to provide what we call “Caring through Culture.” This means that proceeds from Playhouse shows, the bar, different lotteries, raffles and contests help to fund the free programs and services that are offered in our community by Hospice North Hastings.

We thank you for your support and for your on-going patronage.
