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. 

 Theatre Under the Stars

Odyssey Theatre is excited to return with award-winning open-air theatre along the banks of the Rideau River in beautiful Strathcona Park!  Our 37th season takes place this summer from July 27th to August 20th, 2023. Click below to see what’s coming!
