Our Mission

To provide...
Educational opportunities that will foster a greater understanding of the Performing Arts and their power to enhance and enrich lives.

  • WORKSHOPS introduce students to professional artists and the world of theatre.

  • PRE-SHOW CHATS before evening performances enhance & enrich the productions.

  • THE FRANKY AWARD recognizes extraordinary commitment to Command Performances.


In 1963 eight inspired citizens determined that the Performing Arts should be brought to the North Country. The spirit of these civic-minded individuals, was in no way dimmed by their lack of fiscal resources. Energy plus enthusiasm were the key ingredients that contributed to the early success of Ogdensburg Community Players.

In 1992 the name was changed to Ogdensburg Command Performances and 54 volunteers committed themselves to running a business with a new mission: “… to present the finest professional touring productions” and “… to provide educational opportunities.” The Board of Trustees also recognized that few performing arts opportunities existed that were designed specifically for youth and a second series, Youtheatre: Class Acts, for students in grades preK-12, was born.
