Summer means the best in live theatre from Canada’s Storyteller, the Blyth Festival to the Huron Country Playhouse, along with The Livery and the Town Hall Heritage Theatre too. The summer theatre season begins in June each year and runs to early September and each theatre sets the stage for your entertainment. Sample summer theatre at its best: spark your imagination and recharge your spirit with lively, intriguing and entertaining theatre in Huron County.
