All the Roles I Loved the Most

Various Writers/Composers

Production coordinated by Rebecca Howard

Last year’s highly acclaimed extravaganza, All the Roles I’ll Never Have, gave our talented performers the chance to present a variety of roles that they would love to be cast in, but would never likely be able to do. This year, we are offering a variation on that theme–providing our local talent the chance to recreate roles that they loved the most!

Once again, it will be an eclectic mix of comedy, drama, singing, and maybe even some dancing. More than a simple “talent show,” this production showcases the extraordinary and amazing talent in our community, with the high quality production values that OxACT has always embodied!

A hilarious look at theater from the inside out. The show follows a local summer theater troupe through the point of view of the unsung heroes who call the show, run the spotlights, sew the costumes, count the tickets, and suffer through every flubbed line, forgotten prop, and missed cue. In the end, Two on the Aisle, Three in a Van continues to prove the old adage that somehow, some way, the show must go on. And it does—just not always as planned.

That adage has never been more true–after Covid cancelled this show in 2020, and we encountered unforeseen challenges that caused us to replace this show at the last minute last season (with the very successful Edgar Allan Poe Afterlife Radio Show), we are once again giving this production our best shot–third time’s a charm!

Ripcord

“A situational comedy about adversarial roommates in a nursing home:” A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden.
