How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying centers on a young window-cleaner, J. Pierrepont Finch, who begins a meteoric rise from the mail room to Vice President of Advertising at the World-Wide Wicket Company. It's a delightful musical satire of corporate life and office politics, packed with memorable songs such as “I Believe in You,” “Brotherhood of Man” and “Been a Long Day.”

A big thanks to our audiences who enjoyed this intense production!
"Every single person involved did wonderful. From the orchestra, to crew, to the cast!"
" I loved it! Great costumes, great set, great acting. Very glad I got to see it."
We're so grateful to our supportive audiences and families who made this wonderful production a success for all involved. And an extra "thank you" goes out to the large crowd who braved the opening night snowstorm surprise, too! What a truly CUTE show! You knew the story -- but we can probably all agree that you'd never seen it as adorable as this :)
We are proud to have so many terrific families, children, volunteers, and supporters who all help make OGP a special place to perform and enjoy the theater!
Four shows across two January weekends helped the Our Gang Players family kick off the new year! Footloose is musical version of the hit 1984 film, highlighting rebellious teenager Ren McCormack as he moves to a small middle-American town where dance is forbidden - and encourages his classmates to defy the local pastor and call for a rock'n'roll prom.
"Thank you" to our enthusiastic audiences, to director Nick Durst, and to the entire Footloose cast and crew!
Our Gang had the pleasure of staging a production of one of the world's best loved musicals! This Rodgers & Hammerstein classic features songs such as "Edelweiss," "My Favorite Things," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "Do-Re-Mi," and of course the title song -- audiences loved The Sound of Music!
"We saw the Sound of Music this weekend and it was amazing!" -- P.M.
"Great job to cast and crew of the Show. Was very happy to see it last night and help out!!" -- J.B.
"Excellent Acting in The Sound of Music! Great cast!" -- S.S.
"Congratulations to the entire cast and crew of The Sound of Music on a stupendous opening night!" -- N.G.
Our Gang's Adult, Teen, and Junior performers loved bringing the famous tale to life for three shows in August!
"Great performance tonight, everyone, you put on a heck of a show! That was as professional of a production of Peter Pan as could be. You all should take great pride in that!" -- Randy W.
"What an amazing job to the Cast and Crew of Peter Pan last night was another sold out show and everybody did so great!" -- Joe R.
"AMAZING SHOW... AMAZING CAST! Congrats to all!" -- Roberta D
Our Gang's Teen Division presented three performances of the hit musical based on the Disney Channel original movie! It was fun for the whole family -- and we are so proud of our cast and crew (and grateful to our supportive audiences filling almost every seat)!
"Cast and crew of HSM - awesome work!" -- K.F.
"What a great show! Good job to cast and crew. Loved the dancing. Hope to see you all in another our gang show soon!" -- J.B.
"Great show everyone!" -- K.G.
"Terrific production! Loved the set and the choreography too!" -- S.B.
