OPA Needs Your Help to Move Forward in 2019

As part of our family, we truly value your involvement and support. While there is a cost for services here at OPA, we are a non-profit, and running an organization such as ours can be extremely costly. We have done as much as we can to cut costs and increase revenue, but we are currently facing a dire need to raise money. To renew our lease in January 2019 and begin priority enrollment for the spring session, we must raise $28,000 by Thanksgiving. A letter explaining the details of the situation is being sent to the 600+ OPA families, and we are coming to you – the families who have called OPA home for the last 15 years and the friends who have supported us throughout our history – for help.

If you have ever been touched by OPA, have seen your child gain confidence and fine-tune their skills, bonded with a teacher, created lasting friendships or seen a career begin here… Please consider donating to OPA today and help us continue impacting lives and bringing arts and culture to our communities.

#FF0000 Raised $8,210 towards the $28,000 target.

In this family-friendly musical, we'll take you through Mother Goose Land, Toyland, and the Spider Forest as you follow the villainous Barnaby's quest to gain the love of sweet Mistress Mary Quite Contrary.

Don't let your kids' physical activity slow down just because the weather is getting colder. Bring the kids to open gym and let them run, flip, tumble, and play in a warm and safe environment! Our Thursday morning sessions are perfect for the youngest tumblers and home-schoolers, and our Saturday sessions are a blast for everyone!
