Summer 2024- The Music Man

Orange Community Players is a community theater dedicated to providing quality non-professional theatrical performances in Orange County. As an all-volunteer organization we could not make these shows happen without YOUR help and we appreciate your interest in auditioning.

There will be Trouble right here in Hillsborough this summer as Orange Community Players performs The Music Man, presented by Hillsborough Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram! We are looking forward to showcasing our talented community in this show. David Boss will be our director. Performances will be July 25-28 at Cedar Ridge High School in Hillsborough.

OCP strives to bring together casts, crews, and production teams that reflect the rich diversity of our community. To promote an inclusive environment and provide opportunities for a wider array of people, casting decisions may include non-traditional choices in terms of gender, race, or other attributes.
