For many who have lived and vacationed in Muskoka for generations, Actors’ Colony Theatre is a welcome return of Straw Hat Theatre, a traditional part of summer time in Muskoka. We are the inheritor of that tradition, that started in Bala in 1934 and was the first professional theatre company in Canada. Live theatre is an important part of the fabric of a community; together with music, art, dance, great cooking and being with those you enjoy. Sharing some or all of this with family and friends is one of life’s true rewards. We offer the opportunity to enjoy good theatre – performances that present humor, pathos or just plain fun.
