A Message from the Artistic Director

The theatre arts are alive in the Hills. Students love the camaraderie and the discipline; administrators and parents appreciate the involvement and creativity and the community embraces the quality. 

Our mission is simple:
1.To involve the students in a variety of theatre experiences.
2.To introduce students to acting philosophy and to technical theatre.
3.To expose the entire student body and community to quality theatre thereby instilling a life-long appreciation for the theatre in the students who will be the audience of the future. 

With over 200 students and parents, and the help of our Music and Theatre Association and the Ottawa Hills Parent Association, the OH Theatre Arts Department has been able to produce the memorable stage award-winning productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Legally Blonde, Annie, The Fantasticks, The Wiz, Peter Pan, and The King and I. However, we also have had non-canonical success. Our award winning Off-Broadway productions of Agnes of God, ‘Night Mother, and Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mama Hung Me in the Closet and I’m Feeling So Sad help illuminate and respond to the darker side of the human condition.
