Since its opening in 1895, the Orillia Opera House has been a focal point for the cultural life of the City of Orillia. The only professional quality performing arts venue in the town, it sits in the heart of downtown Orillia on Mississaga Street and West Street with more than ample parking available for patrons. There are no bad seats at the Orillia Opera House. It’s a theatre that brings big name artists to Orillia residents – every seat in the house is a good one as they’re all within 75 feet of the stage. The main stage has seating for 677 and the studio theatre space accommodates 100.
The Opera House, known for its fine acoustics and has featured such artists as the Marx Brothers, Glenn Gould, Oscar Peterson, K.D. Lang, Mickey Rooney, Dan Hill, Liona Boyd, Blue Rodeo, Jerry Dee, Ron James, Lighthouse, The Stampeders, David Clayton Thomas, Bruce Cockburn and our own hometown boy, Gordon Lightfoot and many would-be greats such as school bands and local theatre groups.
Facilities now include a small theatre, known as the “Studio” with 104 seats.
Since 1895 the Orillia Opera House has been bringing the best in local, national and international talent to its stages. From performances by living legends to our popular summer theatre series, there is always something happening that will entertain, educate and inspire.
