Doncaster Playhouse is a welcoming, comfortable and relaxed small studio theatre. The historic building was constructed in 1863 as the area's first primary school before being refurbished as a community theatre in 1988.
The Playhouse is a great venue to experience one of the many concerts or theatre shows presented regularly by Council for the community. You can also enjoy a show with one of several local theatre companies that call the Playhouse home, including Phoenix and Sherbrooke Theatre Companies.
