Welcome to Over Our Heads Players Season 28 !
Whether its your first OOHPS production or you've been an audience member since our inaugural production 28 years ago at our first home "George's Bar" - welcome.
Our theatre company was in fact "born in a bar" 28 years ago. Since then we have been bringing professional quality, new theatre experiences to our community and priding ourselves on winning audience members along the way. We love to hear audience members rave about adopting us as "their theatre!"
What can you expect from an OOHPS production? The unexpected.
We take great pride in offering our community an urban theatre style that is most often reserved for cities much larger than ours. Our mission continues to focus on new material and the OOHP emphasis on humor. We enjoy providing topics and humor from all angles, including thought provoking plays that may even find humor and messages in the darker corners of life. And we continue to never edit for content or language.
We are so very grateful to our loyal audience and generous sponsors that have helped make this 28th year possible. Our greatest achievement has been watching our audience and community grow with us.
The time and effort invested by our many dedicated volunteers, board and our staff, is in service the moment you arrive. Our gratitude that you have chosen to spend your time here with us cannot be overstated.
We look forward to having you in our audience !

2020 Snowdance® 16th Anniversary 10 Minute Comedy Festival! Competition of Original Comedies
You know the drill! The hit playwriting competition draws entries from around the globe. Judges choose the best to produce. Then, in the ultimate interactive experience, the audience votes on who should win the cash prize. It’s original comedy plus OOHPs’ signature hijinks between plays. Utah has Sundance; Racine has Snowdance! A great reason for season tickets – this popular event sells out.
These plays are not yet rated; they are not yet written! "R-rated" words or themes may be included.
Lyrical – yet biting - romantic comedy by John Patrick Shanley. Heartbreaking Irish struggle over land and love.
The unlikely story of Anthony and Rosemary, two introverted farmers who haven’t got a clue when it comes to love. With the years slipping away, this eccentric pair will need to overcome a bitter land feud, family rivalries, and their own romantic fears to find happiness. Their journey is heartbreaking, funny, and ultimately wonderful. Full of dark humor and poetic prose by the Pulitzer, Tony, and Oscar Award-Winning author of Doubt and Moonstruck, "Outside Mullingar is a valentine to the wonder and weirdness of love." – NY Daily News.
If this were a movie, we think it would be rated "PG-13."
Dark comedy about a comical mismatch by Jen Silverman. Powerful story of what it takes to re-route your life – and what happens when the wheels come off.
Think The Odd Couple meets Breaking Bad: Sharon, a recently divorced housewife in Iowa, advertises for a roommate. Enter Robyn, a pot-smoking vegan lesbian scam artist from the Bronx. Their chance cohabitation sets their lives spinning. "The Roommate tugs at the heartstrings as much as it tickles the funny bone." - Louisville.com
If this were a movie, we think it would be rated "PG-13" or a little stronger.
