    Theatre for Young Audiences Version

    April 2019
    Directed by Stephanie Drahozal

    Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe... all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.

    This production is especially geared toward our teenage and youth performers.

    Since its sinking on its maiden voyage over one hundred years ago, the story of the RMS Titanic has resonated into the hearts of millions. This magical musical about its fateful voyage won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1997 and tells the stories of many different people aboard the ship from the owner, designer, and captain, to the crew and passengers. Weaving storytelling through its largely sung-through score, Titanic focuses on the human impacts of the disaster. OSHP is proud to announce the first original version amateur theatre production of Titanic in Dane County.

    Congratulations to our 2018 scholarship recipients!
