“There are no small parts, only small actors.”
OPA prefers ensemble heavy shows and our productions feature the ensemble first. Every one of our young actors is trained in stagecraft, encouraged to discover his or her own unique voice, and pushed to work up from ensemble to principal roles. Not every student becomes a career thespian, but we believe there's a magic and a certain life-changing brightness that grows out of the challenge and triumph of the performing arts.
Currently, Ovation Performing Arts Theatre serves a homeschool theater community with rehearsals during public school hours. These shows are educational historical fiction productions. Shows include choral, theatrical, and soloistic music in English and foreign languages, dance in ethnic and theatrical styles, lots of parts for lots of actors and they are always family-friendly with overt Christian values.
“I am always amazed at the originality and quality of OPA performances.”
Set in the little village of Anatevka, Fiddler on the Roof centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, and featuring iconic and beloved songs such as "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a Rich Man" and "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," Fiddler on the Roof, has won nine Tony Awards since its 1964 debut, and become a core staple of the musical theatre canon.
