Odyssey offers theatregoers a magical experience. Tales of the trials and triumphs of the human spirit are brought to life with masks, pageantry, original music and humour. We create critically hailed Canadian plays and dynamic adaptations from the international repertoire. Join us—and enter a world of laughter, intrigue and enchantment.
Theatre under the Stars summer productions in Ottawa’s Strathcona Park appeal to a broad audience. Periodic indoor performances feature edgier themes. Odyssey supports new play creation, artist training and youth programs that draw Canadian and international theatre artists to work with us. Be sure to check those sections for public participation options.
On December 9, 2013 at the National Arts Centre, Odyssey Theatre celebrated Stuart Conger, the Theatre’s long-time friend, supporter and a former Board member who passed on November 28th at the age of 87.
Stuart was an influential national and international figure in the development and promotion of Life Skills training and career development. He loved creativity in many forms but especially in the theatre and considered Odyssey Theatre to be an excellent example, having achieved national recognition.
At the event, Stuart’s wife contributed $25,000 to Odyssey Theatre on Stuart’s behalf. To honour him, Odyssey has established the Stuart Conger Endowment Fund that will support the company’s growth to include important long-term projects like touring and developing our outdoor facility in Strathcona Park.
