Olathe Community Theatre 2012-2013 Season

The board of the Olathe Community Theatre Association (OCTA) is proud to announce our 38th season. OCTA has an exciting slate of shows to put up in our historic space in Olathe, KS. Our 2012-2013 season is an exciting mix of old and new, plays and musicals, with something to offer audiences of all ages.

Our 2012-2013 season is:

We kick off our season in August with the hilarious and poignant musical revue I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change – book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro, music by Jimmy Roberts, Directed by Shelly Stewart with Musical Direction by Kevin Hershberger

In October, don't miss OCTA's very first production of the greatest English-language playwright, William Shakespeare, when we present Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare's comedy of bickering lovers. Directed by David Martin.

Gone With the Wind was one of the most-beloved books and films of the 20th century, but how did the book become the movie? In Moonlight & Magnolias, Ron Hutchinson shows us what happens when you lock three of the most driven men in Hollywood in an office for five days. Coming in February 2013. Directed by Nancy Eppert

The beautiful story of an old man whose Impossible Dream takes over his mind, the songs in the musical Man of La Mancha will linger in your soul long after the show is over. Coming in April 2013, Directed by Jessica Franz with Musical Direction by Darin Parker.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart is a warm, irreverent, funny and touching drama about three passionate Mississippi sisters, who, in trying to escape their past, embrace their future. In a first for OCTA, this show will go up in June of 2013, and will be directed by Darren Sextro.

Also in OCTA's forthcoming season are our December special event, a Christmas show to delight families of all ages and in late June, our annual gala, the Buddy Awards. Please mark your calendar for these events and we look forward to seeing you at OCTA!
