Old Church Theater
Old Church Theater (OCT) was organized in 1985 and is a fully incorporated non-profit organization, devoted to providing entertainment and performance opportunities to surrounding communities. Governed by an eleven member board, the public is welcome to participate in all aspects of entertainment production, direction, acting, backstage, scenery, lighting, makeup, costuming and more.
The Theater’s home until 2018 was Bradford’s historic “Old Church” on Main Street. (The building is more than 225 years old.) Beginning in 2018, OCT moved its operation, temporarily, to 176 Waits River Road in Bradford, while major fundraising efforts were undertaken to restore “the Old Church” into a year-round performance arts center. Current plans call for a return to the Main Street location in 2021 once repairs and renovation are complete.
