Volunteers are critical to Odyssey’s success. As a non-profit, charitable organization, we depend on help from the community to produce top quality theatre. Our volunteers augment our capacity and provide valuable skills and expertise to the Artistic Director, General Manager and Board of Directors. Volunteers help the Theatre undertake projects and activities that we would be unable to complete on our own. Volunteers help build community support and public awareness of our work and raise the resources needed to create and perform excellent theatre for the residents of Ottawa.
