When Keri Forman, one of the directors of Orange Community Players (OCP) saw a note on Facebook asking for help in providing prom dresses for girls who have lost so much in the recent flooding, Foreman sent a note to the other directors of OCP asking about the possibility of donating dresses from the store of costumes at the theater. The board of directors wholeheartedly voted to share the dresses with the girls in need.

Diana Hill and Jean Hamerly went to the theater and sorted through the costume closets and found about 30 dresses suitable for prom wear.

“We are going to have a showcase of prom dresses at the Playhouse starting March 28, the day after Easter, we will also show the dresses on Tuesday, March 29, Wednesday, March 30, and Thursday, March 31. We will be there from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. The dresses are various sizes, so you will need to come in and be fitted. There will be women at the theater to assist you in fitting your dress,” said Hill. “OCP wants you to look your best for your prom. We have between 30 and 35 beautiful dresses, most are new and have never been worn. We are donating the dresses at no charge, if you want to return them after your prom; that will be fine.”

The offer is extended to all Orange County high school girls who have suffered losses from the recent flooding and is in need of a dress for her prom.

OCP is located at 708 Division Street in Orange, across from the courthouse. For information, you may call Diana Hill, OCP Board President, at 409-313-1459
