Mission Statement

The Ottawa School of Speech and Drama (OSSD) is a not-for profit charitable organization that provides training and education in Drama, Theatre, Speech Arts and Musical Theatre for students ages 6 through adult in the Ottawa-Carlton area. The School aims to achieve a high standard of instruction by working with theatre professionals and drama educators with proven artistic sensibility.

Description

The Ottawa School of Speech & Drama was founded by Natalie Stern in 1988 and has demonstrated significant growth since its inception. OSSD began by teaching Speech and Drama courses, aimed at developing effective vocal skills and dramatic awareness and culminating in examinations through the International Examination Board, Trinity College London, England.

OSSD has expanded programming to include courses in Acting, Creative Drama, Musical Theatre, Shakespeare, Auditioning Techniques, Improvisation, Voice, Movement, Playwriting and Collective Creations. Students learn specific skills such as vocal production, singing, movement, dance, sight-reading, language arts, text analysis, scene study, character development and aspects of technical theatre.

In August 2005, OSSD moved into a brand new facility at 294 Picton Ave. in Westboro. Housed with four state of the art studios the new space allowed the School to expand its programming further and offer more services to the community.
