Performing Art Theatres
○The Centre in the Square. This is arguably the biggest theatre in the region, with a constant rotation of plays, photography, art, and other shows. Catch an exhibit featuring the underwater photography of a National Geographic cameraman, a show by UB40, or The Australian Pink Floyd Show, all coming this Fall. Look for more performances by visiting their website.
○Conrad Centre for the Performing Arts. The home base for the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony Orchestra, this theatre does not have any events scheduled for the summer. Watch for their upcoming events Skating’s Greatest Hits, Rhythm Rocks, and the 2016-2017 program for the KW Orchestra here.
○Lost & Found Theatre Company. This company often performs at the Kitchener Central Library Auditorium, but can be found at other venues as well. While this is not strictly a theatre, the plays put on by this company are always creative and bound to entertain. Furthermore, if you have a child between the ages of 14-21 who is interested in acting, consider checking out their program The Young Company!
○The Registry Theatre. The Registry has some events which are put on by the theatre itself, and some put on by renters. Upcoming events include Four Styles One Voice, Salt Baby, The Occupy Spring Project, and the Rocky Horror Show.
○St. Jacobs Theatres. A short drive from Waterloo, St. Jacobs boasts many great destinations that make it worth visiting. Most of all, they offer two theatre locations for Drayton entertainment, an award-winning, not-for-profit professional theatre company. Check performance dates, buy tickets online, and look at what else St. Jacobs has to offer here!
○KW Little Theatre. Located on Princess Street, this small venue has managed to bounce back after burning down in 2002. Participate in one of their Popcorn Play workshops, take in one of their often comical shows, and keep an eye on their event page to see what’s coming up.
○Galaxy Cinemas at Conestoga Mall, Waterloo.
○Landmark Cinemas at the Boardwalk, Waterloo.
○Landmark Cinemas 12, Kitchener.
○Princess Theatre & Princess Twin, Uptown Waterloo.
