Oscar Defrancis was born in Boston and has been raised for most his life in Northampton. A local, he's been attending the Williston Northampton School as a day student for the last five years. He's taken theatre classes in both middle and high school here at Williston, but because of his dedication to cross country and track has yet to be part of a fall or spring production. This play is a great opportunity for him to take part in something he loves and at the same time try new things.
