Looking to immerse yourself in local culture and take in an extraordinary play that will pluck every emotional cord? Visit the Thousand Islands Playhouse for performances that will make you laugh, cry and sing along!
Our time at The Thousand Islands Playhouse was absolutely incredible! We started the evening by being greeted by the welcoming staff at the stunning Springer Theatre that sits just on The St. Lawrence River. We headed in to grab a drink before the show started then sat and sipped on the balcony while the sun set over the St. Lawrence. After we finished our drinks it was time for the show!
Back In ’59 was on, a play that follows four friends that ditched their high school reunion to reminisce about their youth and the music that carried them throughout high school in the 50’s & 60’s. The performance was absolutely stunning, with an elaborate set and decade fitting costumes that transport you back to the days of Elvis and poodle skirts. The talented cast portrayed the nostalgia of seeing old friends incredibly, and their snappy choreography and brilliant harmonies were absolutely breathtaking. We left the theatre with a new-found appreciation for old friends, classic hits and the arts.
The talent & dedication showcased by The Thousand Islands Playhouse at every performance truly makes them a treasure of the Thousand Islands, but don’t just take my word for it, there are many more shows playing this season you can see such as:
