Fall 2022 Appeal!
Oddfellows Playhouse celebrates 47 Years!!
Fall is upon us and we have been loving the start of our 22-23 season!
As we prepare to enter our 48th year of service, we’re reflecting on almost five decades of devotion to the children of our community.
Just when we think we’ve heard it all, another story arrives in our inbox about how instrumental Oddfellows was in the life of an OP Alumnus.
We are so proud of this work, and none of it would have been possible without the support of people like you.
We have the most generous community!
It is so touching to receive contributions, especially after the tough last few years the world has gone through.
We appreciate the recognition you all give us through your donations.
We believe that children deserve access to high quality arts education.
This work builds the confidence and socioemotional skills of children.
We're looking forward to another 50 years of service to Middletown families and beyond.
Thank you for believing in us! We are excited for the rest of the year.
Check out what we're looking forward to this season:
Journey to the West, a modern adaptation of a 16th Century epic Chinese novel by Mary Zimmerman will be presented by our Teen Repertory Company on November 11-13 & 18-19. A special presentation will take place on Nov 16, 6:30pm at Russell Library for A Public Talk on “Journey to the West” by Wesleyan University Visiting Professor of East Asian Studies Dr. Allison Bernard, as well as on Friday, November 11: Dr. Bernard will moderate a post show discussion with the director, cast and audience about the themes and impacts of “Journey to the West.” Tickets on sale soon!
