Welcome to the OCT website,

Our 30th Anniversary season was a great triumph closing with our Summer production of Wizard of Oz, jr. It was a great success in spite of the heat, but we are going to try to remedy that for next year.

Now, it’s time to look forward to our next season. We are very happy and proud to announce our season lineup. This November we are pleased to present the fun loving musical comedy How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Is the story about the triumph of the common man amid the buffoonery of big business. When a restless, creative, and ambitious window washer named J. Pierrepont Finch happens upon a book entitled "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying", he decides to begin his rise up the corporate ladder. With the book’s instructions and a dose of his own cleverness, Finch starts by landing a job in the mailroom at the World Wide Wicket Company, before quickly gaining promotions and outsmarting his scheming, sniveling rival, Frump (who also happens to be the boss’s nephew) until finally reaching the very top of the organization. From the very beginning, Finch has had the love and support of Rosemary, a marriage-minded secretary who recognizes Finch’s potential, and finds his innocent demeanor endearing. But in his single-minded pursuit of the top job, Finch is in danger of discounting Rosemary’s love. In a moment of crisis, Finch’s manual to success can no longer help him: he must rely on his own wits, and ultimately, his heart, to save the day.

This February we will continue our theatre season with the wonderful classic play Driving Miss Daisy. And this April we will bring you Don’t Hug Me, We’re Married, a sequel the Musical comedy favorite, Don’t Hug Me.
