OFC Creations has expanded its previously announced 2019-2020 season.

Earlier this season, OFC and Judith Ranaletta presented “Nunsense” for a sold-out run at the Century Club of Rochester featuring a cast of professional adult actors. Ranaletta, the former longtime Artistic and Vocal Director for Greece Athena High School, is now preparing for her spring musical, Man of La Mancha, as an interactive theatrical experience moving room to room in the Century Club mansion.

“Projects like what Judith has been creating is what makes OFC unique for Rochester,” says Eric Vaughn Johnson, OFC Executive Director. “We want to continue to offer experiences to students and audience members that broaden our vision of what performing arts can and should be.”

OFC Creations’ 2019-2020 season marks its fifteenth year as a Rochester theater company focused on education and experimental professional projects under the direction of Johnson. The season ranges from family entertainment, to drag queens, to original musicals, to interactive experiences. OFC Creations recently announced the headlining performer for the 2019-2020 season, Fran Drescher. Best known for her role in the TV series “The Nanny,” Drescher will close OFC’s season in June on the Main Stage at the Kodak Center.

Tickets for OFC’s 2019-2020 season are now on sale online at www.OFCCreations.com or by calling 585-667-0954.

Cervantes is in prison awaiting trial. He and his fellow prisoners perform a play-within-a-play, telling the story of the elderly Alonso Quijana, who renames himself Don Quixote and goes on a quest to right all wrongs in the world. Featuring classic numbers including “The Impossible Dream,” “I, Don Quixote,” “Dulcinea,” “I Really Like Him” and “Little Bird,” the story transforms the prisoners. Directed by Judith Ranaletta.

Schmoozing with Fran Drescher
Friday, June 12 at 8PM at the Kodak Center Main Stage

Fran Drescher’s first break was in the unforgettable movie, Saturday Night Fever (1977) with John Travolta. She continued to play small roles in movies, until she came up with the idea for The Nanny (1993). The Nanny became an instant success, and so did Drescher. Since then, she has been in films such as The Beautician and the Beast (1997) and Picking Up the Pieces (2000) co-starring Woody Allen. She is a cancer survivor and an inspiration to women everywhere. Drescher’s new series, Indebted, will be released early 2020.
