All of us here at OOTA send our caring wishes to those affected by the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus. In return, we deeply appreciate the outpouring of empathy and support during this challenging time. While we have not cancelled any upcoming summer performances, we sincerely hope you consider supporting other local community artists and arts organizations by donating the cost of previously purchased tickets to cancelled concerts and events in exchange for a tax-deductible contribution. In this crisis, cultural industries and workers need your support more than ever.

We respectfully acknowledge the territory in which we gather as the ancestral homelands of the Beothuk, and the island of Newfoundland as the ancestral homelands of the Mi’kmaq and Beothuk. We would also like to recognize the Inuit of Nunatsiavut and NunatuKavut and the Innu of Nitassinan, and their ancestors, as the original people of Labrador. We strive for respectful relationships with all the peoples of this province as we search for collective healing and true reconciliation and honour this beautiful land together.
