Welcome to the OCT website,

We hope you have enjoyed our 30th Anniversary Season of Musicals so far! It has been a pleasure bringing these productions to you. Our Fall production of Mary Poppins was a big hit with over 2,000 people in attendance! And our Winter production of Nunsense also delighted large audiences with its habit humor. So don’t miss what we have in store for you next! Come and see Forever Plaid! We are proud to bring back this musical comedy favorite.

Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered they shared a love for music, and then got together to become their idols - The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo's and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge's family's plumbing supply company they became "Forever Plaid". On the way to their first big gig, the "Plaids" are slammed broadside by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at this moment when their careers and lives end, and where the story of Forever Plaid begins.

As they say on the late night TV commercials, “But wait, there’s still more!” We are also planning a 30th Anniversary Gala for next June. This is a very special Red Carpet event for anyone who has participated in Oregon Community Theatre over the past 30 years in any way. If you ever participated with us as an actor, singer, musician in the orchestra pit, worked back stage, ran lights or sound, helped build or paint a set, or even ushered, we’re looking for YOU!!! Simply click on “30 Year Red Carpet Alumni Gala” in the menu bar, then click on registration, print out the form and mail it in. Also, tracking down 30 seasons of participants is, as you can imagine a daunting task. We don’t want to miss anyone. So if you know of somebody who was involved in any of our shows, and might not get this message, please pass the word on to them. We greatly appreciate it!

Remember, you can now order your theatre tickets on line! There is no waiting in long lines at the box office and it’s easy to do. Just click “Buy Tickets and Season Memberships” and follow the prompts. Or contact Brenda at the box office at 419-691-1398.

We welcome you to join us by getting involved in any way you’d like. Let us hear from you and we will help you find your niche. Don’t forget to tell your friends and family about us. Your recommendations are our best advertising. Thank you for supporting the arts.

See you at the theatre!
Reed Steele
OCT President
