Oak’s Got Talent!

CANCELLED FOR 2017 due to lack of volunteers.

Over the years, Oak’s Got Talent has become something of a tradition.  The event began almost ten years ago as the OMS Coffee House with dozens of parent volunteers organizing and holding the event in our cafeteria.  In those early days, student performers showcased their wonderful talents in front of a packed house of friends and families.  A few years ago, our coffee house evolved into more of a  variety show in our OMS auditorium, again performing to full houses year after year.  With our former director’s children moving on from middle school,  we find ourselves in need of a new director who can help us keep the tradition alive.

Do you love theatre, music, dance, and other performing arts?  Do you have a skill set that would lend itself to directing these kinds of performances?  We understand the demands of busy family life and we understand that these types of events require time and effort.  The PTO and OMS administration are committed to working together with you to make the 2017 Oak’s Got Talent a reality.  Please consider volunteering.

Interested?  Contact our PTO President, Beth Casavant, at this link.
