Congratulations to the William and Nancy Hughes Performing Arts Center and Ocean City High School Drama Guild and everyone involved with the four performances of the Fall 2022 play, “Once In A Lifetime.”

The student actors and adult staff members were outstanding.

This was a great special event to attend. The commitment by everyone involved was exceptional.

Please support local theater by making contributions to support their efforts and attend their plays. They work so hard and having a great crowd at each show is so important to all of the cast and crew.

We are already looking forward to their next play.

Believe it or not, work on this starts today. The Spring, 2023 play will be the musical “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.”
