What people are saying about OFT On the Move

“I’ve participated in many OFT shows before, so when I heard that they were coming to my school to perform, I couldn’t wait. OFT shows always make me laugh and they teach great life lessons.”

– Annie Barrette (5th Grade)

“I experienced the 2-person traveling show of Lion Witch and the Wardrobe at my son’s elementary school. It was amazingly well-done. The kids giggled and shrieked in delight and it kept the attention of even the youngest ones in the audience. I hope we can get OFT’s touring group to come back again soon!”

– Kathy Strauss

“Nick and I very much enjoyed the program. The actors did a superb job. The majority of the children there were new to theatre and the program was perfect for that audience. It was a fun and engaging introduction to theatre.  It was obvious that they had prepared well for the performance, but I liked how it felt spontaneous.” 

 – Jill Hayes
