Inspired and Inspiring Theatre!
New Theatre of Ottawa is one of the Capital’s most established small theatre companies. We have operated as NTO since 1992 but we were in existence as The Actors’ Co-op Theatre beginning in 1986. Our commitment to the Highest standards has never wavered.

The Players Advice to Shakespeare
"What a fantastically good show the New Theatre of Ottawa has brought to Edinburgh: a really fresh take on Shakespeare, performed with virtuosity and generosity by the brilliant David Warburton, taking one into the heart of the Jacobean Theatre, and out of it, to see where life and art join up - or don't. Should be sold out every night."

Sharpen your pencils! It’s that time again! NTO is now accepting short play submissions for the 4th Edition of Extremely Short New Play Festival. Submissions have to be less than 10 minutes (less is ok!), they must tell a story (whatever that means to you), have less than four characters on stage at the same time and have simple set and props requirements… and that’s about it!
Send your submissions to email@example.com
as either a Word or PDF attachment. To help keep our sanity there’s a limit of two plays per author. The deadline for submission is December 31, 2015. At the end of April 2016, the selected plays will be announced. The Festival will be at The Acting Company's Avalon Studio in the fall of 2016 (stay tuned for the exact dates). For more information send us an email.
