Our Time Productions is a small but rapidly growing theater company that is dedicated to providing opportunities for young performers to showcase their talents. Last year, OTP attended the 26th annual TNT Youth Conference thanks to generous sponsorship, and their outstanding performance earned them the coveted Esprit de Corps Award, which recognizes the true spirit of the conference. The OTP youth performers demonstrated exceptional leadership qualities and brought home numerous individual achievement awards, including All-Star Cast, All Star Improv, Perfect Pitch, Monologue Performance, the Gilmore Spirit Award, and Entrepreneurship Awards. One talented young OTP actress even received a Dennis Gilmore Scholarship worth $500.

OTP and their supporters are passionate about exposing children to the performing arts, and they may offer scholarships to cover the costs of attending the TNT conference in Deer Park, Texas, because at the core of OTP is a commitment to celebrating the uniqueness of every young artist and providing them with the support they need to succeed. If you have a child who is passionate about the arts, don’t let the cost of the trip stop them from pursuing their dreams. Bring them to the Heritage Hall of the Blooming Grove Methodist Church located at 300 S Kerr Street in Blooming Grove at 6 p.m. on Monday, March 20th to audition for this unforgettable opportunity!
