There will be no classes during the Thanksgiving weekend, Halloween, November 11th and 12th, the Christmas Break, Family Day, the March Break, the Easter weekend and Victoria Day.

We also offer shorter workshop intensives which vary in length from one day to 12 weeks. These intensives may present in one of our black box studios at the end of the course.
2018-2019 theme will be Anything Goes!!
· Works will be inspired by Anything! - Art, science, nature, stories and poetry, fairytales and legends.
· 2019 is year 30 in OST-ETO’s growth and development of theatre education in teaching theatre excellence.
· Collaborations with Ottawa theatre companies and within The Shenkman Arts Centre family of artists and arts groups, will continue to give OST-ETO students performance and backstage opportunities. We aim for increased outreach to French schools and community centers.
Students in our full year program will perform on stage in our 2019 Student Spring Showcase: Anything Goes!!
*Some students may be best served in a class level either above or below their age: Please call Kathi Langston, OST’s Artistic Director, if you want advice on what class would best suit you or your child.
Consider signing up to study and complete a Speech Drama exam; OST will be working with The Royal Conservatory again this year. It enhances theatre study and looks great on a resume.
