Opelika Theatre has a lot of great things going on for the first part of the new year.

CLASSES

Our O-ACT academy classes are growing by leaps and bounds. We are offering classes for ages 5 through adults in all aspects of stage, performing and musical theatre. Our acting classes focus on scene studies, audition skills, acting techniques, improv, communication skills, character development and more. Our Musical Theatre class introduces the students to basic dance steps, combos and terminology used in theatre.  

Wesley Knox, veteran stage actor and director will be offering adult acting classes on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Register for an introductory free class for Wednesday, Jan. 26.

PRODUCTIONS

OTC is partnering with NAACP/ACT-SO and R.E.A.C.H. to present a showcase for Black History Month: “Celebrating Black Greatness” to be presented at Southside Center for the Arts on Feb. 26 at 2 and 7 p.m. Applications are being accepted for performers of all ages who wish to donate their talents for this event. Deadline for application will be Jan 31.  Admission to the showcase is free, but you must reserve your tickets in advance because seating is limited at each performance.

FUNDRAISING EFFORTS

Our shoe drive has been extended to Feb. 15. We have collected 35 bags of our 65-bag goal. Each bag holds 25 pairs of gently worn shoes that will be sent to third world countries to help citizens start their own businesses to improve their economy. Drop off locations are Opelika Library, Auburn Bank Opelika and Tiger Town, Franklin Tire, Southside Center, The Observer and The Chamber of Commerce.
