FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre

The FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre is made up of our 4 seperate venues.

Partridge Hall is a beautiful multi-purpose concert hall and can accommodate the requirements of most theatrical and musical performances, as well as community or corporate events.
Audience members enjoy excellent sightlines and proximity to the stage, world-class acoustics and an intimate connection to what’s happening on stage. This theatre will boast the most equipped professional grade sound, lighting and video installations in Niagara including state-of-the-art systems to accommodate the needs of the most demanding events.

Cairns Recital Hall is the perfect intimate setting to experience small musical ensembles, singer-songwriters and/or spoken word.

It’s fully equipped to handle any event and designed with every detail in mind – adaptable acoustics, state-of-the-art sound, excellent sightlines and seating plan that promises each person a close and personal experience.

Robertson Theatre is a flexible “black box” space with 2,600 square feet of floor space to accommodate performances, exhibits, recitals, cabaret, workshops, team building events, small receptions, product launches and seminars.

This multi-purpose and intimate space is fully equipped and can be set with 108 retractable seats, tables, chairs, stools or nothing at all.
