This is a very exciting moment for Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School. Over the past eight months or so we have been partnering with ORCTV and LakeCam (with financial support from Rockland Trust) to start an extracurricular TV production program at the school. Instructor Marsha Davenport and our OC students have worked diligently to get their first episode on the air. The results are fabulous!
We look forward to continuously enhancing the list of offerings at Old Colony RVTHS to meet the varied interests of our student body. Congratulations to the OCTV team and special thanks to ORCTV, LakeCam, and Rockland Trust for making this effort possible.

2016’s production of Cafe Murder at Old Colony was a huge success! View Sippican Week’s article of that event here.
This year’s production will be Door-to-Door. A dramatization of opportunities involving two doors onstage which represent various types of doors in life: bedroom doors, closet doors, apartment doors, dorm room doors…even the metaphorical doors we face every time we make a decision. Eight individual scenes and monologues take us through these doors, offering a breadth of tones that reflect upon life, choices, moments and self-discovery.
No experience needed. All personalities accepted. Sign up with Ms. Guy in the Library by September 29th to be part of the club. Our first meeting will be on Tuesday, October 3rd after school.
