Curse of the Castle Spectre
A ragtag crew of performers who earnestly love theater are trying to avert disaster backstage when an actor mysteriously disappears and the play takes a chaotic turn—they persevere through the mayhem with heart and pure dedication.
An unconventional comedic adaptation of 1797 melodrama. There will be dramatic sword fights! Ghosts! Bloody daggers, secret trapdoors, unrequited passion, and musical accompaniment! A play within a play put on by an amateur community theater company.
About Our Theater Program
Stage productions at OES are an opportunity for the practical application and further development of technical and acting skills learned in curriculum-based courses, serving to encourage students to become involved in the theatrical arts, as well as providing thought-provoking entertainment for the community.
The Visual, Performing, and Musical Arts Department is committed to providing the opportunity for students to participate in at least three fully-produced mainstage productions per year. We are committed to staging plays that align with our school mission and thus benefit the intellectual, cultural, spiritual, emotional, and artistic growth of our students. We strive to choose plays that are relevant to the community and that complement each other over the course of the year in style, content, and technical demand.
Our spring show is a student-driven (written, directed, produced), curriculum-based production, though all productions offer multiple levels of acting and technical challenge to meet students at appropriate developmental levels. Utilizing a mentorship model, OES mainstage productions offer leadership opportunities for our student directors, actors and technical crew. In all productions, we seek a creative, collaborative process and environment and encourage crossing disciplines, divisions, and departments, as well as involvement with the wider community.
