The Repertory



The OCC Theatre Department Proudly Presents:

The OCC Repertory Theatre Company  (THE REP!)



Since 1985 OCC's theatre department has provided students with a theatre company of their own. The student members of The Rep create a full season of plays, incl​​​uding many original works. The students direct, act, design and do all the tasks required to run their productions.

 Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind
​ (30 plays in 60 minutes)


 Neo- Futurist plays by Greg Allen    

March 30 and 31 at 7:30pm

April 6 and 7 at 7:30pm

The challenge: present 30 "Neo Futurist" plays in under 60 minutes! Chosen in random order by the audience, these plays are chaotic, funny, tragic and political. This is the longest-running play in Chicago history! Prepare yourself to interact with a very energetic cast...  

This is our third crazy, laugh-filled year--come see what's new!

 Definitely recommended for mature audiences. No, really, adults only.
