A Message from the OMS Theater Department:

After much study and research the school play has been decided, sort of. The plan this year is to perform a series of 10 minute plays that will revolve around a theme. The working title is “Why Me? and Other Burning Questions” Four or five specific scripts will be selected. This will allow the director to cast the best 15 or so actors and use them in multiple roles.

Can vomit and spoiled milk be art? What if public speaking could kill you? Does proper grammar really matter? What would you do if your worst nightmare came true? And, why do girls always have the upper hand on guys? All these questions and more will be answered in “Pieces of Seven”, a collection of seven 10 minute plays performed by the Ooltewah Middle School Theatrical Ensemble. 

Casting List:

Grace Atkins, D'artagnon Grant, Riley Grove, Audrey Lane, Emily Purcell, Morgan Milner, Thomas Quartez, Michelle Smith, Mari Taylor, Katy Wilson

The show will be performed in the OMS Theater on Friday and Saturday, April 17 & 18 at 7:00. .


Congratulations to 8th Grader- Drew Carson who will compete in the State Geography Bee on March 27th in Nashville.
