OFC Creations presents Newsies


*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 08/24/2019
Set in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right! Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken.

Entering into its 14th year, OFC Creations (Opportunities For Creativity) continues to enhance the arts throughout the Rochester area for all ages. Through shows, events, and work-shops OFC is committed to giving back to our next generation.

OFC Creations was founded in 2005 by Eric Vaughn Johnson to give students an opportunity to push their creative limits. Students dabbled in claymation, videography, and music videos. As the group matured, OFC Creations became a more formal organization with support from the Rochester community. The group produced live musical theatre productions in Pittsford, Brighton, Fairport, Nazareth College, The Rochester Museum and Science Center, Visual Studies Workshop, School of the Arts, East End Theatre, The Kodak Center, and The Lyric Theatre.

Today OFC Creations continues supporting the community through partnerships and creative show selections in the Rochester area. OFC offers after school and evening arts programming to private and public schools, video production for events and theatrical performances, and opening opportunities to new directors in the Rochester community. Additionally, OFC partners with the LGBT community each year to present a fundraiser for Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS. In the summer months, OFC runs the largest theatre summer camp program in Upstate New York: ROC Summer Theatre Experience.
