I've seen multiple shows at this venue, and they're all very professionally done, and almost always entertaining. The theatre is also in a great location in Westboro with lots of great restaurants nearby for dinner.

Great place to take in a show. Small and intimate theatre. Great shows! Have never been disappointed there yet. I am glad this theatre has survived. Always great to have a vibrant arts scene in any city!

We are subscribers and go to several shows at this theatre every year. It is close enough to downtown Ottawa for tourists to get to. The plays are always interesting and often very memorable. Give it a try!
