Located just three blocks from downtown Traverse City, the Old Town Playhouse and the OTP Young Company is housed in a renovated three-story turn-of-the-century church.

Performance areas are barrier-free and include a 275-seat MainStage auditorium and an 60-seat black box space. In addition, the OTP rents a second facility, located at 620 Railroad Place (at the corner of E. 8th Street and Woodmere Avenue in Traverse City), for its Studio Theatre productions and some OTP Young Company performances. The Playhouse houses conference and multipurpose/rehearsal rooms, a wood shop/set construction and storage area, make-up rooms, and costume construction and storage facilities.

In addition to performances, workshops and classes held at OTP, Young Company touring productions travel to area schools, community centers, libraries and bookstores, bringing a variety of performances to a broad audience.
