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.

Casting List:

Grace Atkins, D'artagnon Grant, Riley Grove, Audrey Lane, Madison Miller, 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. Rehearsals begin on Tuesday, February 24. The schedule will be determined by the scripts chosen and the actors cast in each, but plan to work at least twice a week.
