AS YOU LIKE IT

November 15, 16, 22 & 23 @ 7:00

By William Shakespeare

Little Theatre

Directed by Linda Burns
In one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies, Rosalind is banished by her jealous uncle and, along with her cousin Celia, seeks refuge in the Forest of Arden, a place of love, joy, and frivolity. Rosalind, disguised as a boy, falls in love with Orlando and woos him in disguise. Comic confusion ensues but the play ends with a joyful wedding and a celebration of love. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, OPRF’s Arden will look and sound a lot like the hills of Yasgur’s Farm, complete with a live band setting Shakespeare’ssongs to the sounds of folk, blues, rock, and soul of the 1960s.

AUDITIORIUM

Seize the day and come see the OPRFHS Winter Musical, Newsies. 

This new Disney musical is based on the real-life New York Newsboys Strike of 1899.  The story focuses on Jack Kelly, a rebellious newsboy whodreams of a life away from the bustle of the big city to be an artist.  After publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer raises the price of papers at the cost of the newsboys, Kelly rallies his fellow newsies into action.  They challenge the establishment, and all of New York has to recognize the power of the "little people."  With the music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman and book by Harvey Fierstein this production promises to wow audiences!

PLAYBACK THEATRE

Studio Theatre

Playback theater brings audience and actors together in a unique way.  Each performance the audience tells stories and the Playback group improvises them back to the audience on the spot. The work is both highly theatrical and interactive!
