Oshkosh Community Players
Oshkosh Community Players is a community-based theatre company in residence at the historic Grand Opera House. OCP merged with the Eclectic Arts Ensemble in 2003. OCP became the resident community theatre at the Grand Opera House in Fall 2010. Oshkosh Community Players has a history spanning over 50 years. The company infrastructure is organized with a Board of Directors. All decisions and events are planned and executed through the board and its committees. It is the mission of the Oshkosh Community Players to produce theater that both reflects our society and societies of the past while informing our community.
Come get involved!
Oshkosh Community Players will now hold meetings in the Grand Lounge every third Tuesday of the month.
So that we may continue our goal of bringing artistically-stimulating theatre of a professional quality to Oshkosh and the rest of the Fox Valley, we are looking to grow. We welcome anyone and everyone who wants to be part of the production process to come on out and attend these meetings!
If you’re interested in acting, directing, costumes, marketing, lights, stage managing, working crew, fund-raising, or having a hand in the show-selection process—any aspect of theatre—then THIS IS THE MEETING FOR YOU!
As previously stated, these meetings will take place every third Tuesday of each month, always starting at 6:30 p.m. and running about an hour (usually followed by social time). At future meetings, we will discuss business, share ideas, and maybe even provide some entertainment, too! ALL VISITORS AND PROSPECTIVE NEW MEMBERS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND!
Enter the Grand Lounge through the stairwell entrance on the West (Alley) side of the building. Cash bar is available for social hour.
Oshkosh Symphony Orchestra
The Oshkosh Symphony Orchestra is Wisconsin's most exciting and innovative professional orchestra.
The OSO has been an integral part of the cultural life of Oshkosh since 1942. The Orchestra has evolved from a civic orchestra, to community symphony orchestra, to a virtuoso professional orchestra to remain relevant and meet the changing needs of the community.
Works for orchestra are often virtuosic in nature, dynamic and very brilliant. There is also room for great expanse, lyricism and drama. Our repertoire has something to offer every audience member; it spans from the Baroque to Beethoven and Brahms to works of our time. In short, a performance by the OSO is everything you want from an orchestra concert, and more.
The OSO creates community partnerships that provide innovative musical experiences and participation opportunities for local students in youth symphonies to entertain, educate, and enrich the quality of life for people in the Oshkosh community and beyond.
Hysterical Productions is proud of their fresh look on traditional, classical and other momentous stories-brought to life on the stage, in the park, at historical locations and even in your own home!
Hysterical Productions aims to inspire and inform all ages through fun, unique, dynamic productions and events, as well as workshops and classes.
'It is our belief that a story inspires and moves through the people it presents. By bringing those people, fictional and/or historical, to life in a dynamic and creative way the stories of our past, present and future will take on new meaning-and inspire change within one's self, our community and society. It is Hysterical Production's goal not only to put breath into people and stories in unique ways, but also to train others in carrying on the tradition.'
