The Bancroft Village Playhouse offers audiences intimate access to live music, theatre and film. Drawing on local talent as well as nationally recognized names and acts, the Playhouse is the heart of Bancroft’s Theatre District.

With monthly TIFF screenings and community events, there’s always something going on at the historic theatre that is by operated by Hospice North Hastings in partnership with St. Paul’s United Church.

This partnership makes the Playhouse different than most theatres. All of our proceeds support the restoration and up-keep of our historic theatre but we also use Playhouse proceeds to provide what we call “Caring through Culture.” This means that proceeds from Playhouse shows, the bar, different lotteries, raffles and contests help to fund the free programs and services that are offered in our community by Hospice North Hastings.

We thank you for your support and for your on-going patronage.

The International Man Of Wonder – Chris Funk

Chris Funk has spent the last 15 of his 23 years in magic travelling the world performing a style of magic that can only be defined as “refreshingly different.” Chris has truly mastered the integral elements of each performance and really engages and  connects with every audience, while creating standout moments time and time again.

Chris has been performing onstage since the age of 7, first as a musician, then as a magician, and now as a brilliant and witty performer known as “The Wonderist.” He combines Intuition, Influence, and Illusion with side-splitting comedy to create moments that baffle and amuse. Chris is also an improv master, allowing him to take advantage of the moments that make every show different from the last. From the moment that you speak with him on the phone to the moment he steps off the stage at your event, you will know that Chris simply understands what it takes to make lasting memories while making your job easier as the event planner.

Laugh After Death – an Evening with Carla Collins @ The Bancroft Village Playhouse
Sep 23 @ 7:00 pm

Laugh After Death

After numerous sold-out shows in both Los Angeles and Toronto, Carla Collins takes her award winning comedy show Laugh After Death on the road.

TORONTO, ON – Laugh After Death is a dead funny 75 minute live stand-up stage show where Carla Collins tackles a taboo subject with a lot of laughs and heart.

“Grief is torturous, miserable, uncomfortable and lasts a really long time. It’s like having tantric sex with Guy Fieri while listening to Nickelback.” –Carla Collins

Carla Collins and her mom Rosemarie Collins were like one person, they enjoyed an
extraordinary bond that went beyond the usual mother/daughter relationship and bordered more on soul mates. Life-long best friends and drinking partners, Carla and Rosemarie were inseparable. In fact, Rosemarie never missed one of Carla’s comedy shows and even opened for her daughter on stage. Rosemarie’s sudden and unexpected passing rocked Carla to her very core and left an unbearable void in her life. Reeling from shock, gripped by despair and unable to imagine her life without her cherished mother, Carla did the only thing that brought any type of
relief or comfort, she made jokes about her mom and death. Laugh After Death is a hilarious and loving homage to Rosemarie. It’s the mother of all comedy tribute shows.
