Voted Ottawa's Most Unique Venue by the Ottawa Business Journal 2015!

​Located in the heart of Ottawa's Glebe neighbourhood, the Acting Co. studios are housed in what was once the historic Avalon Theatre (one of Ottawa’s first movie houses). Our three studios were built in the summers of 2013 & 2014 - and have new hardwood floors, theatre lighting, AC, sound capabilities and Wifi. 

​Our principal space, the Avalon Studio, has dramatic 60 ft. ceilings and a mezzanine, which doubles as a Green Room. With its high ceilings, hardwood floors, lighting and sound capabilities, ​the Avalon makes for a perfect rental space for fundraisers, event launches, workshops, and productions.
