Cedarville, Ohio—On Saturday, Oct. 10, Cedarville University will host an event for high school students looking to pursue careers in theatre.
Theatre Day opens with introductions from faculty specializing in all areas of drama, including stage performance, technical theatre, design, dramaturgy and theatre education. Guests receive an all-access backstage pass to visit the scene shop, makeup studio and dressing rooms; and may also attend an acting workshop.
