About the Theatre
Every season the St. Peters Courthouse Theatre comes alive with a line up showcasing local musicians, local plays, comedy acts, and storytelling shows.

Intimate, charming and always entertaining, the St. Peters Courthouse Theatre at Quigley Memorial Hall is a not-for-profit community theatre in the village of St. Peters Bay, Prince Edward Island.
