A beloved production returns.

The return of the moving love story between Mary Sophia Gapper and Edward O'Brien. This smash-hit of our 2018 season is back with performances across Simcoe County in September 2022.


Mary of Shanty Bay will take place in September-October 2022, with dates and locations of the performances to be announced. There will also be a touring presentation in Collingwood, in partnership with Theatre Collingwood

Be sure to keep an eye out for details, as the run completely sold out before the production opened in 2018!
