Idyllic, rural, and quintessentially Canadian, each year the 4th Line Theatre Company presents Canadian plays – written by and about Canadians; small town stories or broad national sagas that touch a nerve in all of us.

4th Line Theatre’s mandate is to preserve and promote our Canadian cultural heritage through the development and presentation of regionally-based, environmentally-staged historical dramas.
For 28 seasons 4th Line Theatre has been bringing history to life on the barnyard stages of a rustic 5th generation farm in Millbrook Ontario, between Peterborough and Port Hope. Founded in 1992 by Creative Director Robert Winslow, this outdoor theatre company is committed to preserving our Canadian cultural heritage through the development and presentation of environmentally-staged historical drama. 4th Line has developed and presented 37 original plays based on regional history and culture.
In 2014, Winslow’s long time collaborator Kim Blackwell took on the role of Managing Artistic Director as Winslow transitioned into the position of Creative Director. Blackwell has been instrumental in defining the 4th Line aesthetic and works tirelessly to give audiences one of the finest theatrical experiences in the country. “These productions,” says Blackwell, “celebrate the history of the area; they are stories with national echoes.”
This magical theatre presents unforgettable outdoor, epic theatrical experiences. Thousands of visitors, young and old alike fall in love with our farm experience complete with picnics, birdsong and sunsets in the country. Create a truly unique experience with a picnic lunch, a performance and an overnight stay at a local country inn or bed and breakfast, for yourself or as a gift.
4th Line Theatre is a not-for-profit, cultural, charitable organization that heavily relies on monetary donations, ticket sales, government funding, advertising and sponsorship support to ensure our success year after year.
