On June 20th, 2017, The Downtown Optimist Club of Meridian President Dan Derrington demonstrated the DTOC’s continuing support for the Meridian Little Theatre’s CenterStage Youth Programs by presenting a check for $1,000 to MLT Director Ellie Massey who came to our meeting to provide the DTOC with an inside glimpse of the amazing benefits children derive from participation in the Arts.
Meridian Little Theatre’s CenterStage Youth Programs are geared toward students who have completed first through sixth grades, in the summer the CenterStage Workshop offers students ideas and skills to use in developing their dramatic abilities. Young participants experience all aspects of live theatre: acting, singing, dancing and staging. Past experience is not required.
