Oskar and the Countless Costume Changes

Directed by Kristin Shoffner
August 1 - June 1 | On Tour

OSKAR WILL BE GOING ON TOUR TO SCHOOLS IN 2018-2019

Ten-year-old Oskar gets to fulfill his dream of writing and directing a play at his school. But when classmates challenge his rigid ideas about the male and female characters everything starts to fall apart. Will Oskar solve the backstage brouhaha before opening night? This funny and fast-paced farce tackles stereotypes head-on and encourages audiences to consider the complexities of gender roles and whether there are such things as “Boy things” or “Girl things.” Oskar celebrates the many ways children have of expressing themselves and understanding others.

 

The entire event is 60 minutes: 45-minute show with 15-minute meet-and-greet
