How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying centers on a young window-cleaner, J. Pierrepont Finch, who begins a meteoric rise from the mail room to Vice President of Advertising at the World-Wide Wicket Company. It's a delightful musical satire of corporate life and office politics, packed with memorable songs such as “I Believe in You,” “Brotherhood of Man” and “Been a Long Day.”

Our Gang's 38th SeasonJunior Division entertains with three adorable performances of Snow White and the 70 Dwarfs!

We're so grateful to our supportive audiences and families who made this wonderful production a success for all involved. And an extra "thank you" goes out to the large crowd who braved the opening night snowstorm surprise, too! What a truly CUTE show! You knew the story -- but we can probably all agree that you'd never seen it as adorable as this :)

We are proud to have so many terrific families, children, volunteers, and supporters who all help make OGP a special place to perform and enjoy the theater!

season 38 begins

Our Gang's 38th SeasonOGP's Teen Division - Footloose!

Four shows across two January weekends helped the Our Gang Players family kick off the new year! Footloose is musical version of the hit 1984 film, highlighting rebellious teenager Ren McCormack as he moves to a small middle-American town where dance is forbidden - and encourages his classmates to defy the local pastor and call for a rock'n'roll prom.

"Thank you" to our enthusiastic audiences, to director Nick Durst, and to the entire Footloose cast and crew!
