Ovation Theatres Limited is a highly successful theatre production company founded by John and Katie Plews who, since 1985, have been running the theatrical production and corporate event company, Ovation Productions.

Ovation Theatres is responsible for running Upstairs at the Gatehouse, a 140 seat fringe theatre in Highgate, North London.

Ovation was established to produce business conferences, product launches, road shows, award ceremonies and corporate videos. The company has won two Gold IVCA Awards (2000 & 2004) for Corporate Live Events as well as a Silver and Bronze in 2002. A Gold Award for organising the 'Best Corporate Event' was also bestowed on Ovation by business magazine 'Marketing Event' in 2000.

This high energy American musical then continued on a national tour visiting over sixty venues around the UK. In 2001 Ovation returned to Edinburgh with Jessica Martin's acclaimed one woman show Veronique - a Lifelong Cult. 2005 saw Ovation produce Jim Bowen's show at the Edinburgh Festival "You Can't Beat A Bit of Bully". It played to sell out audiences at Jongleurs Comedy Club.
