Nala, from the Lion King Jr in 2019 production in Youngstown, Ohio.

Bringing up a new generation of young, talented, creative actors!

Since reopening in 2015, the Oakland Center for the arts has been reintroducing the scope of theatre that was performed there from its inception. Though currently, youth theater has been the predominant focus, we plan to bring back unique productions and shows that drew people to the Oakland in years prior.
Here are all of the previous listings of productions since we opened our online website.
