The theatre annually presents an array of professional performances in addition to highlighting some of the best talent that hails from Chatham-Kent. The theatre is also home to two local theatre groups, Theatre Kent and Take A Bow Productions, and provides rental space to a number of community groups. The theatre is also rented by a number of national and regional promoters who present professional entertainment.

The Kiwanis Theatre has a proscenium stage with an extended apron in front. Seating capacity is 669 plus the wheelchair section, and is reduced when seats are removed to accommodate an orchestra, bad sight lines, or a soundboard.
