Our Gang returned to our "second home" at the Surflight Theatre in Beach Haven to perform four shows in October 2013, directed by Our Gang's Perry Award-winning Jessica O'Brien. Stunning songs, fascinating characters, and a compelling storyline, Cabaret is set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power. The story focuses on nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw.
Our Gang's Teen and Adult Divisions proudly presented the family-friendly musical adventure at the OceanFirst Theater for four shows in August.
Thanks to everyone for your support!
Our Gang's Junior Division proudly produced this classic story at the OceanFirst Theater for three shows in July. A talented cast of big kids and little kids -- about 100 performers altogether -- went on the journey from Kansas to Oz and back again.
Thanks to all our great audiences and supporters for helping our show to be a success!
Our Gang's Annual Summer Camp was held this year at The Horbelt School in mid-July, with leaders Mr. Stephen, Miss Emily, and Miss Kathryn. Thanks to all the children who participated!
Be on the lookout for next year's dates, to be anounced approx Feb. 2014. In the meantime, the old registration form can be viewed here. Hope to see you next July!
Our Gang presented this classic musical to enthusiastic audiences in early April! Thank you to all our supporters, cast, crew, and staff for helping us produce this dramatic testimony to the power of love! Directed by Jessica O'Brien-Roy. Opening night Friday, April 5; also performed on April 6 and 7.
OGP looks forward to returning to the Surflight again next winter! Remember to also support their 2013 season; details and show schedules can be found at www.surflight.org.
Our Gang is grateful to the Surflight Theatre for welcoming us this winter! So far, our busy winter season has thrived at the Surflight as we both do our part to "restore the shore" on LBI!
In February, we performed the classic comedy, Arsenic and Old Lace, and in March we performed the modern romantic musical The Last Five Years. Our audience, casts, and crew have enjoyed the experience a great deal! And the Surflight staff has been gracious and accomodating.
Long Beach Island is returning from its long, hard, winter and a warmer season is springing up at the Surflight -- up next for us is the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, Carousel. Don't miss your chance to experience this Our Gang production in the wonderful Surflight setting!
