About OFC Creations

About

OFC Creations Theatre Center is a professional regional performing arts center proudly based in Rochester, NY. Since 2005, OFC has been creating unique, beloved, and high caliber theatrical productions under the direction of Eric Vaughn Johnson.

 

PRO-SEASON: OFC's Broadway in Brighton Series is a professional line up of musical productions featuring performers from New York City, Los Angeles, and across the country.  Many actors have performed on Broadway, on National Tours, and in major motion pictures. This subscription based series includes popular shows that are rarely produced in the region.

EDUCATION: OFC's educational programs offers opportunities for students ages 4 to 18 to take the stage through classes in acting, singing and dance. Students can perform in full shows that rehearse afterschool and weekends as well as in OFC's massive summer camp program, ROC Summer Theatre Experience.

The staff at OFC is comprised of current theatre professionals focused on creating the next generation of theatre professionals and high caliber productions. Johnson has assembled a team of artists and teaching artists with major credits, and continues to grow and expand the team to meet the high demand for performing arts in the Rochester region. 

OFC Creations Theatre Center

Originally housed in multiple theatres including the Kodak Center and the Lyric Theatre, OFC opened a new, multi-purpose performing arts center in Brighton in July of 2020: OFC Creations Theatre Center.

 

The OFC Creations Theatre Center (3450 Winton Pl, Rochester, NY 14623) has given the company the opportunity to expand to offer more to the community that it serves. The 260-seat theatre hosts a multitude of events. The re-designed lobby is ideal for community receptions and events. Additional spaces include a multi-use dance studio, private lesson rooms, greenroom/dressing room, and more. The center is air conditioned, ADA accessible, and has free parking for 750 vehicles.

With a focus on youth theatre education and performances, mounting professional plays and musicals, hosting community events, presenting out-of-town entertainers, the center provides much-needed performance space to local arts groups of all sizes. OFC offers classes in acting, singing, and dancing; is able to host community events, school field trips and tours; along with their popular theatre camps held during summer and the school year.
