One More Day
by Michael Roddy
Directed by Tom Bruno


From 1942 to 1964 thousands of migrant farmer workers, or Braceros, came to the states to work for the US-Mexico Agricultural Program. Their hopes, dreams and hardships are poignantly portrayed in this original memory play that revisits the historical significance of their contribution to our country. This OCC premiere is a tribute to their lives and sacrifices.

 The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
This Tony Award-winning comic musical by Rachel Sheinkin and William Finn has charmed audiences across thecountry with its effortless wit and humor. Fast-paced, wildly funny and touching, join our colorful group of young spellers as they (and some audience members) spell their way through a series of (potentially made up) words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, life-unaffirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Many spellers enter; one leaves! At least the losers get a juice box!
