On Feb 1, 2018 OCT experienced a facility fire within the Annex building. While this building was mainly used for storage of costumes and set pieces, it also housed a smaller performance space previously used just for rehearsals. OCT was in the process of launching programming specific for the smaller space when the fire broke out.
Now, OCT begins the process of rebuilding from the fire.
