About the venue
The Orangeville Town Hall Opera House is managed by Theatre Orangeville on behalf of the Town of Orangeville.
Originally built in 1875, the Opera House on the second floor of the Orangeville Town Hall was fully restored in 1993—and a dream was born. Under the leadership of founding Artistic Director Jim Betts, Theatre Orangeville opened its first season in 1994.
After nearly 20 years of professional productions, it was further renovated in 2013, focusing on increasing accessibility and updating the infrastructure.
The Opera House features:
- Excellent acoustics and visibility from every seat
- 273 plush, comfortable seats
- Superb sound system and full complement of microphones
- Professional lighting equipment and inventory
- High-efficiency LED lighting fixtures
- Dressing rooms
The Opera House has 40 seats throughout the theatre that are either removable or offer a swing-out aisle end to allow for easier transfer into a seat.
Accessible parking is available behind the Opera House. Both the Broadway and Second Street entrances are fully accessible.
Unfortunately, this venue is not wheelchair accessible. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and are looking to rectify the situation moving forward.
There are accessible washrooms available on the main and upper levels of the building.
