Unfortunately, the old saying “the show must go on” will not apply to the Ocean City Theatre Company’s 2020 Season. We have made the difficult decision to cancel our Summer Broadway Series and Music Pier Children’s Theatre Series. Ultimately the safety of our staff, artists, students and patrons are at the foundation of this decision.
We have suspended all camp/class programming until we can evaluate how we can offer educational opportunities that adhere to the guidelines mandated by State and local health authorities.
Auditions for OCTC’s Junior Company and THE SOUND OF MUSIC Von Trapp kids scheduled for June 5, 6 and 7 have been cancelled. We are looking at ways to continue the Junior Company so please stay tuned!
Each summer the Ocean City Theatre Company employees more than 150 educators, technicians, artists and designers. Over 300 kids participate in a summer camp or youth production and over 8,000 patrons enjoy one of our summer shows. This loss of employment and ticket revenue will be devastating for OCTC. However, an even bigger loss will the lack of arts, creativity and the magic that comes with live theatre in Ocean City, NJ.
Ticketholders for all shows will be contacted to process refunds or to see if you would be willing to show your support by turning your ticket sales into donations. Please allow time for us to reach out to everyone as the refund process is time consuming and we are navigating our way through this unprecedented time.
We are grateful for your patience, support and generosity during these challenging times. For now, just think about this as an extra-long intermission and before we know it the curtain will rise on Act 2.
