What started off as a fledgling theatre in the village of Drayton, Ontario has grown into a national phenomenon in Canadian theatre. In the span of two decades the charitable organization has grown to include seven theatres operating in five unique communities.
Drayton Entertainment does not receive funding from any level of government for its annual operations – it is a model of sustainability studied throughout North America.
Annual attendance exceeds 250,000, making Drayton Entertainment one of the largest professional theatre companies in Canada. It is also recognized by Canadian Actors' Equity Association as one of the largest employers of professional artists in Canada.
