John and his team at The Centre were amazing. We had the most wonderful reception. John was so on top of every email and every little detail leading up to the wedding, which alleviated sooo much stress. We didn’t worry about anything because we knew that John was behind the scenes making sure that everything would be perfect and in its place – and it was. Our day turned out perfect, we couldn’t have asked for more. It was the best day of our lives. John made us feel so special and so taken care of. It was a great pleasure to have worked with someone so thoughtful and dedicated to their craft.

The Dryden Entertainment Series is extremely grateful to present 8 to 10 concerts in the Dryden Performing Arts Centre each season. The Centre, as it is locally known, features a beautiful 500 seat auditorium; a large functional stage; state of the art sound and lighting equipment; and a spacious and welcoming atrium for greeting guests. As well, the professional and personable staff efficiently and effectively takes care of all our presenting needs. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful facility in our community.

The Dryden Performing Arts Centre is the “home” of Theatre 17. All of our performances have taken place on its wide, acoustically perfect stage. It is an asset that we are very lucky to have: it allows us to put up a full set, utilize the great stage lighting and sound system, and showcase our talented actors. The handy green room is close, well equipped and perfect for our needs. The beautiful, designer building is a perfect setting for artistic endeavors.

Not only are we lucky to have such a beautiful physical structure, but the management and staff are most efficient, always going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that the cast and crew have everything they need, and that the needs of the audience are a primary consideration. We thank you for all your help.

We’ve chosen The Centre on a number of occasions as a venue for our Leadership Development Institutes, public forums, meetings and celebrations. Our experiences working with The Centre to host these events has been consistently excellent! John and his staff are leaders in customer excellence; polite and respectful, wonderfully supportive and helpful! They are experts at paying careful attention to matching and accommodating what we’re doing, meeting us were we need to be met, supporting us in our work and helping us when we need help!

The Retired Teachers of Ontario, District 35, has held a number of our monthly Luncheons at the Centre. Christmas Luncheons are always extremely popular, due, not only to the fine catered food, but also to the helpful staff, the beautiful table settings with uniquely folded napkins and the special Christmas punch and wines which we enjoy in the spectacular atrium. Thanks, to John and the staff!
