OKP has completed its final show of the year!

eBoard

What is the eBoard?

The Executive Board (eBoard) is a group of individuals who are elected into certain positions for one year to ensure that OKP runs successfully. There are student leaders who are dedicated to their position. All eBoard members are elected at the last OKP general meeting of the year and have to be nominated by their peers for the role. Advisors also ensure OKP is able to perform upwards of 4 shows a year by providing expertise and experience.

Officers

Colleen McGrath

Colleen McGrath

OKP President

The President has many roles in OKP. Most of my time is spent dealing with day-to-day business such as scheduling and leading monthly meetings, working along side E-board to create agendas, and planning events. Furthermore, I am in charge of overseeing E-Board and delegating responsibility to the other officers and representatives. During productions, I help to manage and facilitate communication among crews, directors, and advisors. Lastly, and my favorite part, is I get to work to create an environment of respect, learning, and community within OKP, as well as having personal connections with everyone.
 
I’m absolutely delighted to be the 2023-2024 Opening Knight Players President. Currently I am a senior, and I have been a member of OKP since my freshmen year, however going all the way back to 2013 when OKP produced Charlotte’s Web was actually my first involvement in the organization. Ever since then I have been in love with the sense of home the OKP gives everyone involved, whether it for one show or every show. Other than OKP, I am a camp counselor, lifeguard, dancer, and active member in my church’s Youth Group. After school I plan on attending a four year university and hopefully continuing theater in some capacity.

Maura Armstrong

OKP Vice President

The Vice President is in charge of making sure that our crews are all working smoothly. I also work alongside the president to help make any suggestions and advocate for our crew chairs and members. I make sure to check in with the crews during productions and try to make the work the best it can be. Occasionally I will run production meetings that will be a more formal way of communicating with crews. I will always try my best to help everyone and make everyone feel accepted and welcome into OKP!
 
Hey I’m Maura! I am very excited to be OKP’s Vice President this year and I am excited to take on this challenge! I am currently a junior and I have been in OKP since day one of my Freshman year and I work primarily in our tech crews like Sounds. I was the crew chair for sounds every show in our 2022-2023 season and continue to work and grow on my work in sounds. When I’m not geeking out over how cool sounds is, I sing and I am apart of other clubs in school like Tri-m and GSA.
 
Sawyer Brown

Sawyer Brown

Secretary

As secretary, I work closely with the president and vice president to create the calander for the year. I take notes at e-board and thespian meetings, maintain the bulletin and calander in the back hallway as well as the white board in Mrs. Willis’ classroom, and create the end-of-the-year slideshow for banquet. Throughout the year, I work with the president and vice-president of OKP and Thespian Society to ensure that the group stays organized and up-to-date with the latest information.
 
I am a junior, and have been involved in OKP since my freshman year. I love to help out in a variety of crews, and have especially done a lot of work as crew chair for scenic painting. I’ve also been an actor in a few OKP productions, such as HSM, One Acts 2022 and The Flurry. Outside of theatre, I enjoy drawing, writing, singing, rollerblading, and arranging music!

Points Secretaries

We are in charge of calculating the number of points that everyone in OKP earns. At the end of each show we collect the hours that people put into it, and convert them into points. For every ten hours you get one point. These help us to determine who can become a thespian.
