Scene Change!

The OOHP Capital Campaign

Pulling back the curtain on one of Southeast Wisconsin's best kept secrets and building a theatrical legacy that audiences can enjoy well into the future is the reason for our Capital Campaign.

We have been in the business of live theater for 33 years and at our current location, the 6th Street Theatre, for 24! Over the years, our theater has gone through a lot of changes, all to improve the professional experience we want to give to our patrons. It's time for a "scene change" in order to keep improving that experience!

Long time season ticket holders and patrons of the arts, Val and Gary Zamencnik, have generously offered to match donations up to $50,000 !
