The Ocean Pines Players has announced a contest to find a new logo. Viewed as a fresh start since being shut down during the pandemic, the new logo is intended to restore visibility and signal The Players’ place as a vibrant member of Ocean Pines/Ocean City and the surrounding arts community.
Interested candidates can find the application form (including requirements and deadlines) on the OPP website https://oceanpinesplayers.org
The contest launches August 1 and is open to all residents of Worcester, Wicomico and Sussex (DE) Counties, lasting until the midnight deadline of September 5. At that time, the general OPP membership will have 5 days to select three finalists, and the OPP Board of Directors will choose a winner from among those three at their September 13 Board meeting. The winning entry will be announced as OPP’s new logo on September 14.
The successful contestant will receive a one-year membership in OPP, 2 free tickets to any production of the 2022-2023 season, local publicity and attribution for 12 months anywhere the new logo is displayed.
The Players are boosting their first full season since the pandemic with a free Open House on Aug 27 at the Ocean Pines White Horse Park Pavilion. The regular season includes two musical entries, “A Grand Night for Singing”, scheduled as dinner theater on November 18 at the Ocean Pines Yacht Club and “Love...or Not?” Feb 10-12 at Most Blessed School. They also offer two comedies, “Play On”, March 10&11,17&18 at MBS and, “Sweet Delilah Swim Club”, May 12&13,19&20 at OP Assateaque Room.
