GOOD NEWS! New York State recently announced live public theatre events can reopen and our team wasted no time getting right back to performing! Although we have been open and running educational programs since July of 2020, the beginning of April marked our ability to welcome back in-person public audiences!

EFFECTIVE: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 4TH
Due to the community uptick in COVID-19 cases, and ever changing recommendations by the CDC, the OFC team has adopted the following policies until further notice: 

 

  • Vaccinated performers/students and instructors do NOT need to wear their masks while on stage and in rehearsals if proof of vaccination is on file with the OFC office
     

  • Unvaccinated performers/students and instructors (or those without proof) MUST wear their masks
     

  • All audience members are asked to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. Audience members may take off their mask if physically eating/drinking
     

  • Performances are still at 100% capacity and all seats may be sold for certain events.

We expect these policies to change in the coming weeks. By attending an OFC event you agree to our Liability Waiver, see below.

Many shows have three options on ticket pricing. General Admission is the normal cost for tickets to attend the show live in person. The Theatre Supporter and Theatre Hero tickets are higher priced, but the extra cost helps keep OFC’s lights on while returning from a reduced capacity.

If you are interested in specific seats being reserved for you for a general admission show there is a $20 per seat charge for them to be held for your party. Please contact us if interested.

See you at the theatre!

BARE: A Pop Opera

Live in person performance on Friday, September 24 at 7:30PM; Saturday, September 25 at 2PM; Saturday, September 25 at 7:30PM; Sunday, September 26 at 2PM at the OFC Creations Theatre Center Main Stage; Appropriate for ages 13 & up

A group of high school seniors at a Catholic boarding school face issues of sexuality and personal identity. As the students struggle to come to terms with who they are, and who the world thinks they should be, they seek answers from their Church, their friends, and ultimately, from within themselves. The story follows Peter and his hidden relationship with his boarding school roommate, Jason. While Peter wishes to share their relationship with the world (and his mother), Jason is set on keeping their life secret and to remain one of the popular jocks of the school. With pressure from Nadia (Jason’s sister who throws her weight around), Ivy (Nadia’s mean girl misunderstood roommate who falls in love with Jason), Matt (who falls in love with Ivy, and outs Peter and Jason’s relationship), and the church’s priest and sassy nun, Sister Chantelle, the story comes with a message of hope for the next generation to love and accept one another. Bare: A Pop Opera features a rich, vibrant score, as the entire show is sung through, with draws on many styles of contemporary music. 

Directed by Eric Vaughn Johnson

A fundraiser for "Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS" will be held at each performance of BARE.

Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's Rent follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.

"40 Years of Progress - It's Time to End the HIV Epidemic." 2021 marks 40 years since the first five cases of what later became known as AIDS were officially reported.

Partnering with OFC sponsor Trillium Health, OFC's production of "RENT" focuses on Reflecting, Recommitting, Reenergizing, Reengaging to end the HIV Epidemic.

Directed by Judith A. Ranaletta
Featuring a cast of professional adult actors.​
