Since 2009 AOR Presents has produced performance opportunities with professional mentors. Students auditioned and were cast in shows alongside professional actors and worked with professional actors and directors. Our recent Mentors shows include The Diary of Anne Frank 2009 directed by Steve O’Connell, The Outsiders (2011) directed by John Rao, and Lord of the Flies (2012) directed by John Rao.
At the end of each production run a Memorial Award was given to students who best exemplified the hard work of the awards namesake: James D. Boone.
2009 Melissa Reid

We are getting ready to start an new exciting initiative that takes this project to a new level.
