Off The Leash is born of an idea, an inspiration, a philosophy: that sometimes it’s necessary to get ‘off the leash’ to get something done.
Off The Leash produces theatre, film, the written word, photographs, events. Off The Leash was founded in 2009 by Jeremy Webb.
Take a stroll around the site to learn more about OTL’s shows, media activities and services. From event production and hosting, to full-blown theatrical production OTL has something for everyone.
A Christmas Carol on the road
For the past two and a half weeks, our production of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol has been down in the USA, touring venues in Georgia and North Carolina. Next week we finish up our US tour with some shows in Bartlett, Tennessee, before heading back to Halifax, Nova Scotia – in time for our Neptune Theatre shows.

On a personal note, Jeremy Webb was thrilled to have been invited to play Max Bialystock in The Producers for Rainbow Stage in Winnipeg this Summer. Find out more about that production here: RAINBOW STAGE
The show opened July 4th.
The show was a lot of fun and a dream come true for Jeremy. Bravo to the entire cast and crew at Rainbow Stage. What an amazing company. Next year they are doing West Side Story and Les Miserables.
