Located right on Queen Street amidst the shops, parks and historic town centre sits the Court House Theatre, a national historic site dating from the 1840s. The Court House is where the Shaw Festival began in 1962. The building’s upper level combines an intimate 327-seat auditorium with a thrust stage and also features a convenient bar where you can pre-order your drink for intermission.

About Court House Theatre

Today, with 10 or more productions each year performed in four theatres for an audience of more than 250,000, the Shaw Festival has grown to become a major Canadian cultural icon, a gem in this country’s rich cultural heritage. Inspired by the wit and passion of Bernard Shaw, the Shaw Festival is a contemporary theatre that features a smart, provocative, potent and diverse mix of plays from the past and present, performed by our celebrated repertory theatre Ensemble. The result is theatre that is challenging, surprising, often funny and always entertaining. These plays are lovingly and artfully brought to the stage each year by a talented team of actors, directors, and designers, showcasing the incredible tapestry of talent that this country contributes to the world.
