Dance Mums: The Parody Musical

Performances September 14-24, 2023 at the OFC Creations Theatre Center Main Stage; Appropriate for ages 16 & up

 World Premiere! From the team who brought you the sold-out runs of The Golden Girls Musical, A Golden Girls Christmas Carol, and Hocus Pocus The Drag Parody Musical, comes a brand-new outrageous parody show!

A group of entitled glamor-moms have made their local dance school a second home for their daughters, arguing that each daughter will be the next big star. Under the direction of their cranky and extremely opinionated dance teacher, Babby Bee, the kids (and their moms) are put to the test through their daily rehearsals and weekly competitions to determine who will be on top of the pyramid.  

 

In this “lost” musical episode, Babby Bee rehearses a brand-new controversial routine to be performed at the biggest competition in New York City. The stakes are high as their arch nemesis, the Caramel Apples, will also be in attendance. 

 

After a dramatic turn of events on the bus ride to the competition, only Babby Bee can save the day and lead the girls to victory through song, sequins, and of course dance!

Audiences will be ‘living on the dance floor’ as well as rolling in the aisles as Babby Bee and her parade of moms shave off their five o’clock shadow, slip on their heels, and begin to brawl in this outrageous and out of control musical. Featuring parody tunes based on hits from the biggest divas of all time including Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Elton John, Billy Joel, and Michael Jackson, who knows what might ensue – we might even make you the next star!

VIP Tickets include priority seating as well as an official dance mums pin in the style of the show to take home.  Please note that this production contains mature content, including strong language and themes.

 

Written and directed by Eric Vaughn Johnson, featuring a cast of professional performers, including Nino Ruggeri starring as Babby Bee. Ruggeri (a.k.a. Connie De LaMangia)  is a New York City based performer who has been seen in drag in productions such as Housewives of Secaucus (Laugh Out Loud Productions) and Here I Am (Kai Amore Productions). Other regional credits include Godspell (The Milton Theatre), Happy Days (Arizona Broadway Theatre), White Christmas (New Bedford Festival Theatre), and Sh-Boom! Life Could Be A Dream (Ocean City Theatre Company). He is a graduate of Emerson College (BFA Musical Theatre). @theninoruggeri / ninoruggeri.com

OFC is thrilled to announce that Garrett Clayton, well known for playing ‘Link’ in NBC’s HAIRSPRAY LIVE!, as well as one of the leads in Disney's TEEN BEACH MOVIE franchise, has been added to top billing for the October regional production of OFC's The Rocky Horror Show. Find out more HERE

This immersive production of The Rocky Horror Show will have audience members seated at tables (by reserved seating) as the production takes place throughout the entire venue - between the tables, behind you, and on our gazebo stage. Guests can order food, beverages, and Participation Prop Bags before the show or at intermission for an additional charge (not included in the ticket price). Doors will open 1 hour prior to showtime to take seats and order food and beverages.

While the majority of the production will start and take place at The Old Farm Café, guests will physically travel next door to the OFC Creations Theatre Center to experience The Floor Show and the conclusion of this cult classic (please note that select performances throughout the run may opt to not travel, see notation below). Starring actors are subject to change due to illness and unforeseen circumstances. Let’s do the Time Warp again! Under the direction of Eric Vaughn Johnson.

Please note, single tickets for this production are slightly higher than other season shows due to the reduced number of available seats. If you do not purchase all tickets at your table, you may be seated with other parties. Food orders will end 10-15 minutes prior to the show.

She Has Risen:
The Golden Girls
 Musical

Written by Eric Vaughn Johnson 

Performances April 11-28, 2024 at the OFC Creations Theatre Center Main Stage; Appropriate for ages 13 & up

 

Picture it: Easter 2024, a miracle has happened as our four favorite golden gals rise from their graves to reunite an extremely divided country. Grab your favorite Easter bonnet and join us for a brand-new show with the Rochester Golden Girls: Hunter Ekberg, Shawn Gray, Ben Reiner, Nino Ruggeri, Eric Schutt, Calvin Staropoli, and Paul Urriola.

 

When Rose launches her campaign for President of the United States all bets are off as the girls begin to fixate over the one conversation they’ve avoided all these years: Politics. As their friendship faces its biggest threat, they now have more than just the country to fix before the election’s most important event, the musical debate at Mar-A-Lago.

Join Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, and Sophia as they leave their Miami home and begin a hysterical road trip to the debate filled with song and dance from Nancy Pelosi, Ron DeSantis, The Trump Family, Joe Biden, and many more. The musical comedy will feature a range of parody tunes, as The Golden Girls “rise up” to make this one Easter we’ll never forget!

She Has Risen: The Golden Girls Musical is an equal opportunity offender! This production pokes fun at ALL sides of politics, and by doing so, hopes to bring us all closer together. 

VIP Tickets include priority seating as well as an exclusive Golden Girls Easter egg  (or other exclusive Golden Girls item) to take home.  Please note that this production contains mature content, including strong language and themes.

The Producers

Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan; Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks

Performances May 9-26, 2024 at the OFC Creations Theatre Center Main Stage

Appropriate for ages 13 & up

The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime for Hitler"), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction.

 

With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners! It is a truly "boffo" hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards with outrageous, in-your-face humor.
