Based on London's 1599 Globe Theatre, the open-air playhouse was constructed at the Fortress of Louisbourg by Walt Disney Studios for the motion picture Squanto: A Warrior's Tale. After filming wrapped up, the structure was donated to Louisbourg and relocated to our site just off the main street of the Town. Since opening to the public in 1994, the Louisbourg Playhouse has presented hundreds of performers to thousands of visitors during our Island's busy tourist season. We try to provide something for everyone, from our local residents to our welcomed visitors.
How to get there
If you're driving from the Canso Causeway, you have a choice. You can take Route 4, the Fleur-de-lis Trail, (also called Highway 104) to Sydney. Or follow the TransCanada Highway 105 to North Sydney and take Highway 125 to Sydney. Near Sydney you will take exit 8 onto Route 22. Driving time for either route is 2.5 hours.
