Drama Club Stages "Our Place"

In just their second year, the OHS drama club is embarking on something new, a fall play. Fourteen students will be performing two shows of “Our Place”, a one-act play by Terry Gabbard. Carole Catherine, a local radio personality, actress and founder of Collywobbles Theatre Company in Fennville, is the advisor for the drama club and the Director of the play, “I chose this play because it has a mixture of everything including comedy and drama and has a large enough cast so that a lot of students could be involved.” 

The play centers around a dock that everyone connects with as their place; and it serves as the backdrop for five different stories, both comic and tragic. Each spring, OHS puts on a musical, but offering students a chance to do a play creates a different opportunity, “Kids who might not get a chance to be in the musical could flex their acting chops and learn about theatre,” Catherine says.

“Our Place” performances are Friday and Saturday, November 9 and 10, at 6:30pm ion the Otsego High School Auditorium. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students. They are available in the high school main office or at the door. This play is also presented in cooperation with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
