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. 

Brian Stewart, Kate Herman, Adam Pierre and Kristina Watt The Extremely Short Play Festival


"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."

- Simon Callow
