Thank you to everyone who auditioned to be part of our 2019 Junior Company and Summer Show Choir! We are a team and everyone was selected to be on this team for a reason. Don’t let us down…we need your talents this summer.
Also remember that being “just in the ensemble” is never OK to say. If you enter a show with that attitude it is my suggestion you should start to think about a new hobby or potentially a new career. The ensemble is the foundation of any show and acts as the driving force to make up the story!
So proud to have you all part of the OCTC family
And now….drum roll please….

2019 SHOW CHOIR
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.
