HOW WE STARTED
Owasso Community Theatre Company was created in the summer of 2002 by a group of theatre enthusiasts. The Board of Governor elections occurred in August 2003 among the founding members. In September 2004, OCTC produced William Inge’s PICNIC as its premiere production. Since that first show, OCTC has incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and has produced a variety of theatrical fare including plays, musicals, talent shows and also offers various workshops and classes throughout the year. The Board of Governors is comprised of dedicated volunteers who give of their time and labor to support the continued development of OCTC.
We rehearse and perform in a variety of venues in the Owasso area, including the Mary Glass Performing Arts Center at Owasso High School, Rejoice Church, and various Owasso Public Schools. Unfortunately, our locations and schedules are frequently changing and are dependent on the availability of each venue. We truly appreciate the patience of our Casts, Crews, and Patrons and we strongly encourage all those interested in OCTC to subscribe to The Newsletter for updates. Plans are underway for securing a permanent location for the educational and performance activities of Owasso Community Theatre Company in the near future.
Some of our past productions include: The Secret Garden, Stuart Little, Wind in the Willows, Picnic, Mousetrap, Anne of Green Gables, Robin Hood, Cheaper by the Dozen, The Cemetery Club, Father Knows Best, Sherlock Holmes, How the West Was Dun, A Bad Year for Tomatoes, Our Miss Brooks, Spirit, Oliver Twist, Neil Simon's: Rumors, Jack and the Magic Beans and Little Women.
OCTC are proud members of the Oklahoma Community Theatre Association (OCTA), the Tulsa Arts and Humanities Council and the Owasso Chamber of Commerce.
