OFC Creations Executive Director, Eric Vaughn Johnson, is no stranger to summer camp programming. From 2013 to 2018, Johnson designed and spearheaded the Summer Stock program at RAPA, leading upwards of 400 campers throughout the summer. Johnson also served as the artistic director of SNAP Musical Theater for four summers with casts of 80 children performing shows including Hairspray and The Little Mermaid. Last year, Johnson expanded OFC’s ROC Summer Theatre Experience with over 500 campers performing 15 musical productions.

“We wanted to bring a one-of-a-kind theater opportunity for youth in Rochester during the summer months,” Johnson said. “The professional arts are rich for Rochester audiences, we aim to bring that same quality in theatrical education components.”

Johnson has established a robust team for ROC Summer Theatre Experience, many of whom are well-know area actors and school teachers with training from New York City, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and Orlando, Florida.

Registration is now open for 2020 summer programs. Discounts are available for campers signing up for more than one camp. Registration information and details are available at www.ROCSummerTheatre.com and at www.OFCCreations.com,
