A Theatre Like No Other!


Play a Role in the Future of Theatre!

This Giving Tuesday, we hope you’ll consider donating to Odyssey Theatre to support the future of theatre through our New Play Creators Program.

We develop the kind of plays you can’t find anywhere else. We have created 24 original works, translations, and adaptations and are currently developing five new works, including The Girl with No Hands, based on a folktale, and a myth-based work entitled The Blue Demon.

Before you enjoy these plays on our stage, they require considerable investment over several years for writers, dramaturgs, choreographers, and workshops with actors. Your donation supports the creation of the powerful stories that will inspire and entertain you in future seasons. 



OAC Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators

Odyssey Theatre is now accepting applications for the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators program. Professional theatre artists, writers, collectives, and collaborative creators in Ontario are eligible to apply for grants to create new works.

Applications are due by January 12th 2024 at 1PM. 


The Other Path Podcast

Now Playing

Take a trip down The Other Path, where witches, shape-shifters, and trickster spirits haunt derelict towns and neighbourhood parks. Classic folk tales meet modern life in a podcast series filled with magic, mystery, and danger.

Our five audio dramas are inspired by fantastical tales from the past, but set in today’s modern world. Follow the risk-takers and the desperate as they tangle with creatures straight out of folklore to pursue their dreams! 

Written by award-winning Canadian writers, each episode comes alive with the voices of professional actors and artfully crafted music and sound.
