Our touring program is integral to the success of our organization, even more so during this economic downturn. School districts are slashing budgets, eliminating teaching positions and drastically reducing or eliminating field trips. Touring productions will be accessible and important as we all look toward ‘making lemonade from lemons.' Long-term success would mean that every child in Oklahoma has the opportunity to see live theatre.
Our educational outreach residencies are housed in Putnam Heights, Edgemere, F.D. Moon, Eugene Fields and Cleveland Elementary schools. We host up to four classes at each location and teach theatre skills as well as creative thinking and teamwork through drama education. These programs are no cost to the school.
OCU students:Each semester we employ up to seven part time OCU student workers providing practical education and experience in working for a professional theatre company.
Youth Board: The Youth Board consists of seasoned children’s theatre kids, ages 13 and up, who have volunteered, performed and/or worked with us as they’ve grown. This group’s goals include fundraising, volunteering and creatively enhancing OCT’s programming in the community.
Teen Volunteers:Our teen volunteers are crucial during our seasonal camps and summer camp months, helping with a variety of tasks. Many of our volunteers have been campers for many years, and aspire to become teachers’ assistants when they are old enough.
Thanks for everything! OCT has really changed my path and helped me get through my first year.
