On Oct. 24, 2012 I saw the play Tempting Providence which was about Nurse Myra Bennett who was the only medical resource on the western side of the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland for many years. The play was very well done and very enjoyable but the playhouse is quite charming in its own right. The Springer Theatre sits right on the water and intermission can be spent on the outer terraces enjoying the beautiful scenery. The staff are very helpful (especially Susan in charge of the box office) and the theatre itself is small enough to be intimate with all seats affording a good view of the stage. Gananoque is a nice town with an interesting Arthur Childs Heritage Centre of the 1000 Islands, a small museum in a heritage building near the tour boat docking area. The Springer Theatre is open only in Spring, Summer and Autumn.
