Welcome to The Gladstone
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 2011, Plosive Productions and SevenThirty Productions joined forces to take on the operation of the theatre. The partnership soon expanded to include shows by Black Sheep Theatre, Bear and Co., Vanity Project Productions, Same Day Theatre, Three Sisters Theatre Company and several other independent and community theatre companies.
Gladstone audiences have enjoyed light-hearted musicals and comedies, gripping dramas, new works by Ottawa playwrights and a new holiday tradition - festive plays in the style of a 1940s-style radio show.
In 2015, the theatre building was sold again and a lease was signed to keep The Gladstone a theatre for years to come.
