Chester Playhouse

Village of Chester

This East Coast gem has been entertaining audiences since 1938 and over the past eighty years our beloved Theatre by the Sea has earned its status as one of the most charming and well-known small theatres in Atlantic Canada.

Owned and operated by the Chester Theatre Council Society the Chester Playhouse is focused on fostering, promoting, encouraging and developing the performing arts within the community, with everything from live theatre performances and marvelous musicals, to movie screenings and concerts – folks come from far and wide to sink into those soft seats and take it all in.

There’s always something on the go at the Chester Playhouse... where “there's always something for everyone!”
