OTR Spring Festival

OTR's Spring Festival is a celebration of our ensemble, which has been generating and developing work together since January 2021. Continuing what we started with our Fall 2022 Festival, some of the work in our Spring 2023 festival was begun under our late Artistic Director, Alice Spivak. The rest of the work has been developed under our new leadership, and through our Scene Study workshop. The festival showcases more than 40 members of our diverse ensemble in 3 full length plays, 4 short plays (including two premiere original short plays) and our first ever Scene Study Showcase.

OnTheRoad Repertory Company was founded in 2012 by Artistic Director Alice Spivak, the renowned acting mentor and author of How To Rehearse When There is No Rehearsal- Acting & the Media. The company was founded in collaboration with her advanced professional acting students. OTR staged more than 20 full theatrical productions under Alice Spivak's direction between 2012-2019. Since her sudden passing in 2020 during COVID, the company has devoted itself to keeping alive her memory and legacy- coming together to complete the work begun by Spivak, and to create new works of theater in her honor. OTR's ongoing mission is to continue the philosophy of Alice Spivak's work, and her approach to theater and acting. An approach that is organic and places a real focus on the material.
