The King’s Playhouse

Music, Theatre, Art, Dance and Children’s Programming in the Heart of Historic Georgetown PEI. One of Canada’s longest-running theatres, this unique community venue has been enriching and entertaining audiences of all ages with live productions and creative performances for more than 120 years.

The original playhouse, built in 1887, was unique in the idea that a county seat should have a town hall that would house both the Town Council meetings and those community and cultural events that knit together small communities and make the long winter nights bearable. Since that time, the playhouse has been hosting professional, semi-professional and touring groups to perform on its state and today remains committed to its community roots with a host of cultural opportunities for all ages.

Offering a wide range of creative opportunities to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds, we invite everyone to participate in this creative centre of cultural and community development. We aim to enrich and entertain a range of audiences through a variety of live theatre productions that enhance the cultural life of the community and beyond.

Throughout its history, the King’s Playhouse has never missed a season and continues to enhance the cultural life of our community through numerous productions, programs and concerts.

The Playhouse is available for weddings, parties, meetings and conferences and features an air-conditioned, licensed, fully-accessible social hall with free parking year-round.
