OVST’s- Summer Youth Theater Program

Ohio Valley Summer Theater presents a new program to nurture students in the development of age appropriate theatrical knowledge and skills. Participants will have an opportunity to explore performance and/or technical production and artistry. Individual growth and development is the goal. Open to primary grade through early high school students, the program will take place July 7-25. Classes will be held M, W, and F, 9am - 1pm. The program will culminate on Saturday, July 26 with a free demonstration performance sharing with family and friends the knowledge and skills learned. Sign-up and fee structure information is available at


The APE Center, with the support from ARTS/West and The Dairy Barn, offers a creative week of self-esteem, cooperation and team-building skills enhancing theater program for children and youth in GRADES K-10. Participants will learn HOW A THEATER SHOW COMES TO BEING – not only through the actors/actresses but
through the efforts of a large team offstage.

The sessions will take place at ARTS/West, every day MONDAY, JULY 28th through FRIDAY, AUGUST 1st from 9am – 4pm, with a free presentation of the SHOWS on SATURDAY afternoon, AUGUST 2nd in ARTS/West. Check their website at
