Make New Memories At The Opera House With Their Summer Season


The Gravenhurst Opera House has been a community cornerstone since 1901 and probably Muskoka’s oldest entertainment tradition. Its beautiful wood interior boasts some of the best acoustics in Canada, making it a great place to see theatre and live music too. What a perfect time to come and make new memories in our newly renovated theatre, completed to maintain the historical charm while giving the beautiful space a fresh look.

Live Theatre returns to the Gravenhurst Opera House this summer with a brilliantly written two-hander play. ‘Are you satisfied with what you know?’ Stewart Lemoine’s romantic comedy THE EXQUISITE HOUR asks that very question. On a beautiful summer’s day, a very ordinary and satisfied fellow blissfully putters away in his back yard, that is until his life is upended by a not so ordinary encyclopedia salesperson. In one hour, life takes a rather unexpected turn. An ordinary, contented man’s life is changed in one extraordinary, yet whimsical hour. It’s 1962. It’s summer. Life is comfy and predictable for Zachary Teale on a lazy, hazy day. Then the lemonade takes a twist with the arrival of a Mrs. Darimont. Never has one hour changed the course of one man’s life, like the Exquisite Hour. Gravenhurst’s own Richard Peters and Jane Miller take you on a playful and imaginative journey when two rather peculiar people cross paths over, of all things, an Encyclopedia. Never has the letter ‘H’ had more possibilities and laughter than in Stewart Lemoine’s THE EXQUISITE HOUR. Be sure to catch to show between July 19-30, with both matinees and evening performances.

Filling out the rest of the season are wonderful concerts with award winning talent such as The Travelling Millbury’s on August 4th, Mad Dogs and Englishmen on August 13th, The Spoons on September 17th and much more!

Pair up your show of choice with a dinner or a cruise, or just enjoy some great shopping downtown. Find more show details and ticket information by visiting or contact the Box Office today to get your tickets at 705-687-5550 Ext. #21, Toll-Free: 1-888-495-8888.
