Come on stage with Young Company!

Young Company is OCT’s year-round student production program. Young actors will love taking to the stage as they work alongside their directors, adult actors, and technical staff, working to bring productions of full-sized adventure to life.

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