THE ACTING COMPANY - DOWNTOWN LOCATION
AVALON & CHAPLIN STUDIOS
The Acting Company studios are located in the heart of Ottawa's Glebe neighbourhood.
The original Avalon Theatre opened in 1928 and closed in 1956. It was first a vaudville theatre before converting to a 900-seat movie theatre, one of Ottawa's first movie houses.
The current Acting Company studios - Avalon and Chaplin - were built in the summers of 2013 & 2014. Both have new hardwood floors, theatre lighting, AC, sound capabilities and Wi-Fi.
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.
