Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts

Opened in February 2009, the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts is the largest cultural facility of its kind in its region. Located at Yonge and Wright Streets in the heart of Richmond Hill’s downtown core, the 43,000 square foot multi-use cultural facility adds to the vitality of the downtown, provides patrons for local shops and restaurants, and stimulated additional developments in its downtown neighborhood.

Components designed by FDA and architects Diamond Schmitt include: a 631-seat Main Auditorium, the largest seating capacity of any theatre in the York Region; a 150-seat Rehearsal Hall with a flexible configuration for interactive presentations, dinner theatre, award ceremonies and corporate events; Lobby Galleries to display an array of visual arts, an Outdoor Piazza perfect to exhibit large-scale art and to bring productions and presentations in the open air, and multipurpose rooms for meetings, classrooms etc.

The Centre provides a home for Richmond Hill’s diverse arts organizations and brings both Canadian and international performing and visual arts to the region.
