COMING SUMMER 2019

*** SCHEDULES SUBJECT TO CHANGE ***

HIGH SCHOOL JUNIOR COMPANY PRODUCTION:

Open to students in 9th – 12th grade as of Fall 2019 or a 2019 graduate

 OCTC is thrilled to present its 12th Junior Company show since the debut in 2008. Youth from Ocean City and the surrounding area have the opportunity to work under a professional production staff and are exposed to a memorable theatre experience. This production is for students entering High School, currently in High School or a June 2019 High School graduate.

The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were ‘up’ and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer’s sparkling new score does for the ’80s what Hairspray did for the ’60s. Just say yes to the most romantic musical in twenty years.

It’s 1985, and rock star wannabe, Robbie Hart, is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and, unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

MIDDLE SCHOOL JUNIOR COMPANY PRODUCTION:

Open to students in 5th – 8th grade as of Fall 2019

OCTC is thrilled to present its 12th Junior Company show since the debut in 2008. Youth from Ocean City and the surrounding area have the opportunity to work under a professional production staff and are exposed to a memorable theatre experience. This production is for students entering 5th grade in Fall 2019, currently in Middle School or a June 2019 8th grader.

Guys and Dolls JR. is an adaptation of the show considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy. Its namesake ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950 and won numerous Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Frank Loesser’s brassy, immortal score and witty book makes Guys and Dolls JR. a perennial crowd pleaser.

Set in Damon Runyon’s New York City, Guys and Dolls JR. follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.

Junior Company Members must fit the below requirements:

-Be a student in 5th-8th grade as of Fall 2019. Students in 9ths grade as of Fall 2019 can decide to do GUYS AND DOLLS JR. or THE WEDDING SINGER but not both.
