It is with extreme sadness and regret, that the Ottawa School of Speech and Drama, must inform its teachers, parents, students and cultural community, that after 25 years of operation, OSSD is forced to close its doors.

All staff members have been terminated and all Board members have resigned, leaving the organization to be no longer functioning as a legal entity. Board and staff members tried very hard for many months to find viable solutions to enable OSSD to continue its operations for the sake of the students, with no success. Operations have become unsustainable.

OSSD recognizes that this situation is devastating and sincerely apologizes for the disruption this will cause.

Thank you for the support you have shown over the years.



Here are some reputable companies that OSSD recommends for theatre education.

Dovercourt | OYP | WeAct School | Ottawa Little Theatre | City of Ottawa |

New Star Children's Theatre | Salamander Theatre | Once Upon a Kingdom
