Cast

This year we will be staging one musical and one play: Heathers The Musical and The Great Gatsby, respectively. Applicants are allowed and encouraged to audition for both shows, but will be asked to preference which show they would rather be in. Applicants may be called back for both, but will ultimately only be cast in one show.

OTL practices inclusive casting and welcomes all those who wish to audition to do so!

 OTL's 2021-2022 season has been cast!

Musical - Heathers the Musical

Based on the cult classic film of the same name, Heathers is the story of Veronica Sawyer, a senior at the fictional Westerberg High. Veronica longs to be cool like the clique of it-girls that runs Westerberg: the unaffected, unattainable Heathers. Unfortunately, in addition to awesome levels of popularity, the Heathers are also cruel, choosing to mock and bully their kingdom into submission. When Veronica uses her skills as a forger to get the Heathers out of detention, she impresses their leader Heather Chandler— so much so that they agree to let her into their exclusive club. At first Veronica is thrilled—until she finds out that being one of the Heathers means bullying the same kids she used to call friends. Meanwhile, Veronica finds herself attracted to a mysterious newcomer at school named Jason Dean (JD). When an innocent drink mixup results in the accidental poisoning of Heather Chandler, JD convinces Veronica to stage Heather’s suicide. The results are so successful that Veronica and JD, exhilarated with their newfound power, resolve to rid Westerberg of the cruelly popular elite forever.

 

Play - The Great Gatsby:

Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, a young Newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed, and danger. The breathtaking glamor and decadent excess of the Jazz Age come to the stage in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, and in Simon Levy’s adaptation, approved by the Fitzgerald Estate.
