The Acting Company is Ottawa's most comprehensive recreational performance arts school. Our program includes over 30 different courses ranging from acting to writing to improv to cinematography. Our students range from 13 to 80 years old and during any given week we have over 250 students working and playing in our studios.

We do not lecture. Students are up on their feet and working right away. We focus on providing a practical and fun approach to the creative acting process.


We emphasize FUN & WARMTH. We laugh a lot in classes! Our instructors are all professional artists & expert instructors.
