910 Gladstone ave.
910 Gladstone has been a venue for professional theatre in Ottawa since 1982, when it became the home of the Great Canadian Theatre Company. In 2007, when the GCTC moved on to a new facility, local businesspeople, Marilisa Granzotto and Steve Martin acquired the building and began an ambitious renovation. In 2008, the revitalised theatre opened, re-branded as The Gladstone, with the vision to bring accessible, thought-provoking and above all entertaining professional theatre to Ottawa audiences.
In its first three years of operation, Gladstone audiences have enjoyed light-hearted musicals, thought-provoking drama, new works by Ottawa playwrights and a new holiday tradition - festive plays in the style of a 1940s-style radio show.
In 2011, Plosive Productions and SevenThirty Productions joined forces to take on the operation of the theatre. The partnership expanded to include shows by Black Sheep Theatre, Bear and Co., Same Day Theatre and other visiting companies. We hope you will enjoy our programming and join us in keeping live (and lively!) theatre thriving in the heart of Little Italy.
