Opening Act Theatre Company

What? Roosevelt High School's resident production company

Who? Students as members enrolled in Theatre Production class, RHS students auditioning for productions, and community members when shows include an "open call" for auditions

When? Our season runs concurrent with the school year. Typically, OATC has a fall production (full length or one-act), winter production (full length or musical), and spring production (Senior Shorts: senior-directed one-act play festival).

Where? Roosevelt High School's Auditorium, Black Box Theatre, and Main Stage Studio (auditorium stage converted to an intimate performance space for Senior Shorts).

How? Please email Jo Strom Lane at for more information on how you can get involved with OATC as a cast or crew member.

To become a company member:
Students enrolled in the Theatre Production class are resident OATC company members for that school year. Other students and community members outside of the class become company members for the duration of any production of which they are a part. Contact Jo Strom Lane for audition information.
