The Avon Theatre began life in 1901 as a vaudeville house called Theatre Albert. By the 1950s, it was being used almost exclusively as a movie theatre.
The Stratford Festival bought the premises in 1963 after renting it for several seasons as a venue for its music and film festivals. A number of major renovations took place over the ensuing years, culminating in the massive renewal project that was completed in 2002. The Theatre currently seats 1090 people.
The Avon houses a traditional proscenium stage.
