Event Details

Parcel Players, Oglebay Institute’s summer theater program for students ages 13 through college, will present two plays again this summer.

Students interested in participating can attend open call/auditions at 7 p.m. May 28 & 29 at Towngate Theatre. Those seeking roles can attend either of these dates. Parents are welcome to attend.

This annual summer theater program offers young people interested in theater a chance to act, direct, design sets, work with costumes, lighting and more.

2019 Parcel Players productions include:

“The Bold, the Young and the Murdered” by Don Zolidis

The long-running soap opera “The Bold and the Young” is in its last days: its hunky hero has self-esteem issues, its villainous old man is more interested in soup, and its heroines are slightly psychopathic. The executive producer gives the squabbling cast an ultimatum–complete one episode overnight or the show dies. But when the director ends up murdered, and other cast members start dropping like flies, it seems like his threat might actually come true. Can these misfits discover the murderer before the show is literally killed off?

It will be staged July 10-13 and calls for a cast of 5 females, 4 males and 4-5 males or females.

“The Tale of Captain Ficklebeard” by Zachary Michael

Captain Ficklebeard and his band of pirates go on a quest to find an ancient treasure known as…the McGuffin. Along the way, they come across legendary creatures, old friends, old enemies…and tons of hijinks.

It will be staged July 31-August 3 and calls for a cast of 8 males, 4 females and 4-5 males or females.

All those interested in exploring theater and participating in the Parcel Players’ productions are invited to participate. For more information, please call 304-233-0820.
