Festival Hall Centre for the Arts is a non-profit organization located in the Upper Ottawa Valley dedicated to the provision of high quality theatrical and artistic experiences in a variety of forums for both citizens and visitors of all ages and backgrounds.
Festival Hall Centre for the Arts fosters artistic, heritage and historic awareness in the production of diverse, quality, professional entertainment including live theatre, music, dance, storytelling, comedy, visual arts and educational programs. Its 600 seat theatre with a storied 35 year history allows people to attend and participate in live theatre locally, enhancing quality of life, celebrating and contributing to the spirit of the community.
The Centre for the arts and its theatre form part of what is now the Equinoxe School property, located at 401 Isabella Street in Pembroke. It is leased by a municipal Consortium (joint venture of the Town of Petawawa, the City of Pembroke and the Township of Laurentian Valley) and its operations are outsourced to a not for profit contractor to provide management services. The Theatre has grown from a volunteer and sponsor driven organization to one which has full time staff in addition to its host of volunteers.
