Thistle Theatre, located in Embro Ontario, has been producing a wide variety of plays since its inception in 1994. Thistle's main production occurs every fall, usually in November, and on the rare occasion will have a second show in the spring. This usually happens if the production is going to be entered into the Western Ontario Drama League Festival.

All of our productions take place in the historic Embro Town Hall which has seen many interesting characters over the last several years. There have been lots of orphans, a musical con artist, and a very tall rabbit. We’ve been to Brighton Beach and Camelot. We’ve been as far back as 1949, and gone Over the River and Through the Woods.

This historic building can boast something of its own… probably the province’s smallest stage! And when you think that some of our biggest productions, full scale musicals that carry casts of 30-40 people, this is quite a feat. The hall has a seating capacity of approximately 175 people, so it’s not surprising that when we present our musicals, 1/5 of the people in the auditorium are actually on stage!

But it’s not just our stage that is cozy. So is the welcoming atmosphere that you will receive here at Thistle Theatre. Many of our new cast and crew members, and audience members coming to visit for the first time, all say they felt like family. So come and see us sometime! Thistle Theatre welcomes you.
