Uproarious slapstick meets dubious morals as two young friends stash the proceeds of a bank robbery in an occupied coffin in an attempt to hide their spoils from the attentions of a psychopathic policeman, a gold-digging nurse and a grieving widower. Winner of London’s Evening Standard Best Play Award, Joe Orton’s Loot is a pitch-black, dizzying farce that is sure to hit the spot. Warning: Loot’s crazy antics may not be suitable for the young or weak of heart.
The Ohio Northern University Band was organized in 1889-90 through the Military Department. The band played for military events and other University functions, but was not separate from the Military Department until 1914. Throughout the years, the ONU band program has continued to grow both in terms of participation as well as in quality and innovation. Students at Ohio Northern have the option of being involved in several bands, including the Symphonic Band. The Symphonic Band is open to students, faculty and staff at ONU.
"What a Way to Make a Living!" This hilarious musical adaptation of the hit film from Grammy Award-winner Dolly Parton features the hit title song and Tony Award-nominated score. 9 to 5 is the hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the rolodex era. When three unlikely friends take control of the office and put their “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot” of a boss in his place, they learn there is nothing they can’t do – even in a man’s world.

When I stage-managed The Pirates of Penzance at ONU, something changed in how I saw myself in the future. I could see myself performing and managing.
