Posted on 04/29/2021
New Hope City Council has approved an agreement with Off Broadway Musical Theater (OBMT) for the summer of 2021.

The agreement, approved at the April 26 city council meeting, calls for OBMT to produce up to nine performances of the musical, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” at the New Hope Performance Center. Performances will be held the weekends of July 22-24, July 29-31 and Aug. 5-7, weather permitting.

Auditions are currently being held for the summer production. Those interested in auditioning may learn more at obmt-newhope.org/auditions.

OBMT is a community-based performing arts group. The group has been producing the city’s summer musicals since 1976. This will be the first production held in the new performance center after a hiatus in 2019 and 2020 due to park construction and the COVID-19 pandemic.
