This very unusual performance of four very talented people who pretended that they were socially inept was very enjoyable. They sang and played some very familiar songs and some designed just for their performance.

Quotes & Highlights

“This is better than John Philip Sousa played on massed kazoos with free ice cream sodas.” —New York Post


Oil City Symphony comes to Fullerton’s Plummer Auditorium.  The show stars its authors and original New York cast  members Mike Craver and Mary Murfitt (626 performances Off-Broadway).  The story concerns four famous graduates of Oil City High School, who return to pay a very humorous homage to a retiring teacher. Each must play several instruments on stage as well as sing and act. The music ranges from “The Hokey Pokey” to the “Anvil Chorus” and also includes  “Stars and Stripes Forever”, “1812 Overture”, and “Count Your Blessings” , plus other sentimental favorites and rock standards.  The show is known for its humor and multi-talented performers.
