Oregon High School students will present their fall play “The Customer is Always Wrong” Oct. 16-18 in the Oregon High School auditorium.

Show times are 7 p.m. on Oct. 16, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Oct. 17, and 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 18.

“The Customer is Always Wrong”, written by Ian McWethy, follows five different high school students through their first jobs. At first, it doesn’t seem like rocket science to babysit, wait tables, pass out flyers, work at a movie theater, or be a telemarketer, but it’s not long before they find out that in the minimum-wage world, the customer is king… a brutal, ruthless king.

“This funny, biting comedy is an ode to anyone who’s ever had to tell the worst customer in the world to “have a nice day,” OHS Choir Director Zach Hall said.

Tickets are available via reservation only; they are $8 for adults and $5 for students.

To reserve tickets, email Lydia Cermak at lydicerma@students.ocusd.net.

Only one person per party should send an email for reservation.

In your email, you MUST include the names of everyone in your party and which show date(s) you plan to attend.

Space is limited and attending multiple shows may not be possible. Each group will be seated 6 feet apart from other groups.

Payment will only be collected at the door, and all attendees will also be required to self-certify that they have no COVID-19 symptoms and have not been in contact with anyone exposed to COVID-19.

Masks must be worn at all times. There is a limit to the amount of people that can attend each show, so be sure to reserve your seats as soon as possible!

“OHS’s fall play is unique to other productions because it is entirely student-led. This means that student leaders are in charge of choosing the play, directing rehearsals, building the set, and organizing for the community,” Hall said.

This year’s play is directed by Claudia Reckamp and produced by Lydia Cermak.

“The cast has been rehearsing since the beginning of school, so come see the hard work they have put in for this enjoyable comedy,” Hall said.
