Bancroft Village Playhouse

Tweed & Company Theatre

5 Hastings Street South
Bancroft, ON K0L 1C0

The Bancroft Village Playhouse is a beautiful 184 seat theatre in the heart of Bancroft, which has been hosting sold out plays, musicals and concerts since the early 1990s. Formerly the Bancroft Community Hall, the historical building was once the local jail, courthouse and library. The building is owned by St. Paul’s United Church, and is currently under a ten year lease to Tweed & Company. We are thrilled to begin to fill the space with theatre, music, film and local arts-based community groups once again.
