The Algonquin Commons Theatre (ACT) is a state of the art venue that opened in the fall of 2012 on the Algonquin College Ottawa campus. Located in the Robert C. Gillett Student Commons (Building E), the Theatre is owned and operated by the Algonquin Students’ Association. The primary purpose of the space is to host events such as live music, comedy, guest speakers, dance, theatre and more!
The ACT has been home to a variety of events. From Randy Bachman and Vance Joy to a live filming of This Hour Has 22 Minutes and the Russian Ballet Saint Petersburg State Academic Ballet Theatre performance of Swan Lake. The ACT offers an assortment of events to compliment the diversity and culture of Ottawa.
The ACT has 700 seats, but can be configured to a capacity of 835 when the seats in the lower pit are removed, allowing for a dance floor.
The space is also available for outside rentals.
