Who We Are

Our Roots

ITR started off as a group of friends who got together and performed "Jesus Christ Super Star" at St. Brigid's Church in Manotick Ontario in 1973. They then moved on to organizing variety shows at St. Leonard's Elementary School in their gymnasium. They called themselves Isle In The River Review Theatre Co. to represent their Manotick roots. As they grew and gathered momentum they began doing full act plays performing at the church hall in Enniskerry Ontario. In the mid 1990s they changed the location of their performances to their present location in the Osgoode Community Centre, just south of Ottawa.

ITR Presidents Award

Each year the ITR Theatre group makes an award to an individual or couple that have made a significant contribution to ITR Theatre. These individuals have constantly demonstrated outstanding dedication to local amateur theatre in our area. To these people Isle In The River Review shall always be grateful.


We publish a newsletter a few times a year to update you on what's been happening with the ITR theatre group.
