FULL HEARTS FOR SOHROB

Sohrob Keynejad

We lovingly dedicate our season to Sohrob Keynejad (OPHS ‘17). A kind, enthusiastic, respected leader & ITS member, Sohrob was the glue that held our stage crew together during his years at OPHS. Whether it was building sets, doing tech or managing the crew-Sohrob did it all! He was a team leader and team builder and an artist. He led his crew with patience, understanding and humor. Sohrob was and will always continue to be a most precious part of our OPHS theatre & Thespian family. #fullheartsforsohrob

Director's Notes

 PIPPIN, with its unforgettable score and timeless story from theatre icon Stephen Schwartz, seemed the perfect fit  as we jumped back into our annual spring musicals live and in person!  Returning to the stage for our third show this year, things still look a tad different but as you will see at this performance, the magic is still there.  The  continued resilience, enthusiasm, dedication, and sense of humor from all of the students working on this production from actors to designers  to musicians  continues to be an inspiration. I know I speak for the entire production team when I say how lucky we are to be working with such a talented bunch!

     This show’s original Broadway production, directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse, opened in 1972 and won several Tony Awards including Best Direction and Choreography for Mr. Fosse. The Broadway Revival opened in 2013 and received several Tony Awards as well,  including Best Revival  and Best Direction for Diane Paulus. With the universal theme of finding the meaning of life along with its magical score, PIPPIN is a show that continues to captivate audiences. We are so glad to have you ‘join us’ as our dazzling troupe of players, led by our charismatic Leading Player, tell the story of Pippin and his journey to find meaning and a life that is extraordinary. Enjoy the show!

PRODUCERS

Oak Park Performing Arts Alliance (OPPAA)

OPPAA is a community of volunteers committed to promoting and supporting the theatre arts program at OPHS. OPPAA funds the productions through donations and produces the Fall and Spring performances. We provide support in all areas of production, from costumes to sets to concessions to ticket sales and everything in between. OPPAA also provides annual scholarships for performing arts seniors who intend to continue their education in performing arts related fields. Our goal is to encourage and guide students in all aspects of theatre and give them the opportunity to cultivate, grow and learn about the areas of production that interest them both on and off stage. Most importantly, we hope the students learn to love theatre!

PRODUCERS

ITS TROUPE # 6074

"Act well your part; there all the honor lies."

​The International Thespian Society (ITS) is an internationally recognized honor society for theatre students that promotes and recognizes student excellence in the theatre arts.  There are ITS Troupes at high schools and middle schools across the United States and abroad.  Students earn membership by participating in productions and accumulating points based on their theatre work. For more information visit schooltheatre.org. Formed in Fall of 2014, our troupe started with just a few enthusiastic theatre kids who had been involved in productions at Oak Park High School.  They wanted to expand their theatre experiences and bring more visibility to the community. With the guidance of a couple of dedicated theatre moms, these students chartered Troupe 6074 of The International Thespian Society. As a troupe we aim to raise awareness for the importance of theatre arts and education through philanthropy, promotion, and being a positive community influence.  We incorporate unique individualistic qualities to form a unified group that stands for cooperation, compassion, creativity and communication through theatre.

As for this play, in particular, I've been listening to Pippin's soundtrack for a long time, and I am really excited to be in this show, even if just as a player. I've always loved theater, and it has been a long time since I got to stretch my theatrical muscles, so I'm glad. Enjoy the show!
