Owner description: 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 like 'Croft Talks Live, 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. Proceeds from Playhouse events support the free programs and services provided by Hospice North Hastings which is why we say the Playhouse supports "Caring through Culture."

Visiting cottage country near Bancroft with relatives turned into an unexpected treat when We
discovered they had reserverd tickets to "Too Many Cooks"!---A Bancroft Summer Theatre
Production; in association with Blackfly Theatre.
Simply put---this production was Outstanding, Hilarious, Professional!
Cast and characters were brilliant! And this was certainly played to a full house.
Great location, as you can wonder around this picturesque village and enjoy many of the
shops, food and beverage houses.
This will be a repeat next time We visit , and certainly a hi-light for anyone visiting the
Bancroft area.

“Fun local theatre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

If visiting Bancroft, check out the Theatre to see what play the local talent is putting on. Always a great way to spend an evening. Tickets are well priced and its in walking distance to local restaurants.
