Ozark Actors Theatre
26 Years of Theater
Nestled in the Ozark hills, the Ozark Actors Theatre is celebrating 26 years of live theater. Ozark Actors Theatre, founded in 1987 by Gail Andrews-Hintz and F. Reed Brown, began with a performance of Godspell in 1988.
Shows are performed in the Cedar Street Playhouse, which was converted from the historic First Baptist Church into the theater it is today. Since its origin, the non-profit organization has produced more than 100 shows.
The theater has presented The Wizard of Oz, Noises Off, The Diviners, and Les Miserables during past seasons. Les Miserables was the first show presented from the theater’s youth education program, OAT Jr., which teaches students 18 years and younger leadership and acting skills through a summer drama camp and a theater production camp.
