Dedicated to putting a little theatre in everyone’s life, Ottawa Little Theatre (OLT) has been a vital part of the Ottawa Arts Community for over 100 years, making it the longest continuously producing community theatre in Canada. Professional in style, traditional in tone, OLT strives to provide a variety of popular plays suited to differing tastes, from fun-loving comedy to the energetic silliness of a farce, and from classic drama to the high tension of a thriller. OLT produces 9 productions a year attracting an audience of over 50,000. As an amateur theatre OLT invites people of all ages to explore their own creativity and imagination by volunteering for its productions – directors, designers, performers and technical running crew are all volunteers. A core staff of eight theatre professionals facilitate the work of these volunteer players.
