Ozark Actors Theatre strives to provide performing arts educational opportunities for Rolla and the surrounding areas.  OAT Ed is designed to build resilience and determination in students as well as help them master complex skills. Arts education encompasses many disciplines: music, drama, dance, design, visual arts.


It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.

This is a 100% youth-lead production featuring kids from all across the area!

Join us in July for OAT's Summer Theatre Academy. These week-long camps will help students develop their singing, dancing, and acting skills, making them musical theatre "triple threats." Throughout the week, guest artists from the professional acting company will visit camp to teach on various topics, and the camp ends with a performance of the songs and scenes students rehearse all week. Grow as a performer, learn from professional artists, and make great friends! 

I had so much fun today and felt like I laughed the whole time! Thank you guys for having these workshops for theatre kids like me so we can learn more about theatre!
