Children's Theater Workshop, will present its 19th year at The Old Theater in Oriental, with summer workshops for students who have completed grades 1 though 12. Children from throughout the county are transported to Oriental, and grandchildren plan to visit Oriental residents during workshop dates every summer for two separate two-week periods of half-day sessions.

In 2014, the Drama Coach will be Beth Woodard, an experienced theater arts educator who has been teaching in North Carolina for many years.  The students can look forward to learning theater skills in a balance with performance preparation that will culminate in two "sharing" evenings the final Thursdays of each two-week class. Sharing dates this season are July 10 and July 24, at 7 PM in “The Old Theater on Broad Street, Oriental. The success of the workshop that emphasizes education, personal growth and exploration of imagination and creativity is evident to parents, peers and to participants themselves as the sessions progress. Extra discoveries from working together toward a common goal prove to be self worth, self discipline and respect for self and others. Many volunteers support the workshop with transportation, snacks and service as onstage aides. Fees are reasonable, and scholarships are available so every child interested in learning about theater has a chance to participate.

Other community services administered by Children's Theater Workshop include the production of A Live Nativity Pageant each December as the opening of the town's "Spirit of Christmas" celebration.  In addition,  a professional troupe of actors presents a live musical to an audience of 2nd graders in the cooperation with The Old Theater each spring.The program is administrated by a well qualified Board of Directors and supported with grants matched by local businesses and individuals.
