Clarksville, Ark. --- Stages Theatre for Youth at the University of the Ozarks will offer a special "Theatre Discovery Day" on Saturday, Dec. 13, on the U of O campus.

Stages Director Ginny Sain and U of O theatre students will present a full day of fun and exciting workshops designed to get kids of all ages on stage to explore the magical art of theatre in a non-competitive, friendly and entertaining way.

Students in 6th through 12th grades will enjoy hilarious theatre and improvisation games designed to get them thinking creatively, character creation activities, lessons in professional acting techniques, and the chance to act in a scene with a partner. There will also be a detailed tour of the theatre facilities and the chance for some “hands on" experience with lighting and other technical elements.
