Since 2005, OFC Creations has offered a palette of opportunities for theatergoers, performers, and students — and has continued expanding programs to meet student and audience demand. Under the leadership of Executive Director, Eric Vaughn Johnson, OFC Creations was founded to give adults and students an opportunity to push their creative limits.
“This new center is exactly what our students, artists, and audiences need right now,” says Johnson. “The theatre center is ideal for expanding our already growing programming and allows for us to connect and partner with many more community arts organizations.”
With over 10 years of venue management experience, Johnson has coordinated rentals and professional event management at the East End Theatre, Kodak Center, Lyric Theatre, Greece Performing Arts, and the Rochester Fringe Festival.
Johnson has brought Hunter Ekberg to OFC Creations as the full-time Operations Manager. Ekberg has been seen on stage in numerous OFC productions as well as behind the scenes directing youth and teen productions and summer camps. Ekberg is also the director of Hands-In Entertainment, a local non-profit focused on event and performance interpreting for the deaf and hard of hearing. Ekberg will be coordinating rentals of the new space, for rental inquires please email: Hunter@OFCCreations.com
