Season 2021 — It's ON!
It's time to laugh and sing again!
We’re getting on with the show and bringing you five fabulous Fall shows featuring some of your favourite performers like Marshall Button, Aaron Solomon and Leisa Way. We’ll also be making a few changes to put all the protocols in place so you can enjoy our shows safely. Due to the shorter season and social distancing, and until we can return to our usual format, we’ll have fewer available seats, a different seating plan, single-priced tickets instead of flex passes and a self-screening check at the door. But one thing that won’t change is the Playhouse Experience.
When the lights come up on our stage you’ll enjoy the laughter and music like never before! The Playhouse returns! September 7 to December 19 — be part of it!
"Quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed Rockin' Round the Christmas Tree yesterday afternoon. In fact it is the best Christmas show we have ever seen. Everything was wonderful about the performance.
I would also like to say on behalf of myself and my husband Bill how much we appreciate the Play House efforts to keep us safe during this Covid time. You have done a tremendous job!!!"
M.L., Russell, Ontario
"On Thursday, December 16th a group of 38 residents of Russell travelled to Morrisburg to see Rockin' Round the Christmas Tree. We had such a good time. The performers were so amazingly talented and Santa was a great addition. We want to express our sincere appreciation to Courtney in the Box Office who endured my numerous telephone calls to get it all sorted out. This is our annual Christmas event and plan on continuing it for many years to come."
Group Booking Organizer
Proof of vaccination (along with a photo ID, such as driver’s license or health card) will be required for everyone 12 years of age and up for admission to Upper Canada Playhouse. You can obtain your proof of immunization by downloading or printing your vaccine receipt from the following link:
or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900. As always, masks are required in the theatre at all times.
Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted entry with a doctor’s note (along with photo ID) until recognized medical exemptions can be integrated as part of a digital vaccine certificate. Children who are 11 years of age and younger and unable to be vaccinated will also be exempted from these requirements. Regardless of vaccination status, masks are always required in the theatre at all times.
Seating Capacity Update
Although the Government of Ontario has removed capacity limits and social distancing requirements for seating in theatres where proof of vaccination is required, The Playhouse will only increase their number of seats to operate at 50% capacity in order to continue to provide distancing between groups. Proof of vaccination and ID, masks, screening and contact tracing are still required. These additional seats will be available for sale starting October 18.
