SYNOPSIS: OJ Simpson may be one of the most recognizable and infamous names of the last 20 years. So when overly eccentric theatre artist Eugene Oliver (Jordan Kenneth Kamp) decides to make Mr. Simpson the subject of his next musical, the results are truly something spectacular. With the help of some loyal childhood friends, a handful of local actors, and a group of producers from a biblical theater company, can Eugene and company overcome the obstacles they face and achieve their goal in creating the next great American musical? Orenthal, reminiscent of the work of Christopher Guest, is sure to have you laughing from Act I. – Sam Robotham.

BIO: Originally from Ohio, Jeff Rosenberg is now based in Southern California. While still in college, Jeff won a Student Emmy Award and MTV Film’s inaugural Best Film on Campus competition judged by Gus Van Sant, Allison Anders and Joel Schumacher. His short films have screened at festivals throughout the world. Orenthal: The Musical, his first feature, recently premiered at Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival.
