Live theatre in the heart of Waterdown

Village Theatre Waterdown is a community theatre that performs at historic Memorial Hall located in the downtown core of Waterdown, Ontario. Village Theatre produces challenging and entertaining dramas, comedies, thrillers, and mysteries for lovers of live theatre. Since 1973, VT has provided a creative outlet for hundreds of local volunteer actors, directors, designers, and enthusiasts to express their ideas and share their passion for the performing arts.

Village Theatre is proud of our reputation as a group of volunteers who foster unique cultural experiences in community. Memorable productions include Top Girls, Equus, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Love For Love. We continue to introduce opportunities for community to perform, volunteer, and learn the art of theatre.

Initially an actor-centred theatre, our experience and technical sophistocation grew and we challenged ourselves with productions that demanded more sets, props, costumes, lighting, and sound. In 2007, The Royal Bank sponsored our production of The Hobbit, stretching our company to new heights as the audience entered the imaginary realm of Middle Earth.

Village Theatre is a registered charity and able to issue charitable tax receipts for donations over $20.


Waterdown Memorial Hall celebrated 100 years in community in 2022. The main hall has served as a meeting place for numerious community organizations, and at times has been a library, a courthouse, a cinema, and a nightclub. The basement has been used as a dormitory, a shooting gallery for the local gun club, a roller rink, and even a jail - used only once, for a man who allegedly stole a horse!
