Come on stage with Young Company!

Young Company is OCT’s student production program. Young actors will love taking to the stage as they work alongside their directors and technical staff, working to bring productions of full-sized adventure to life. Students may sign up for one production or register throughout the year.

Through a diverse and exciting production season, Young Company offers opportunities for children and teens to experience the excitement of the theatre as they hone their craft, develop new skills, problem solve, and make new friends in a safe and encouraging production environment.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever! 
Ages: 8-16
Dates: October 26th- December 16th (See Full Schedule for Details)
Join our Young Company Cast for this delightful holiday comedy based on the best-selling young-adult book by Barbara Robinson!
When the original director breaks her leg, Beth’s inexperienced mother is put in charge of the church’s Christmas pageant. When the Herdman kids, known as the most inventively awful kids in history, are cast in the leads, chaos-and fun- ensues. But Beth and her community watch in surprise as the same old Christmas story is rejuvenated by the creativity, energy, and unexpected sincerity of a misunderstood young family. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is warm, incredibly funny, and sure to get you in the holiday spirit!
