North Central Louisiana Arts Council is making plans for its annual program, Drama Warehouse, to be held this April at the Jackson Parish Library in Jonesboro. Drama Warehouse is part of our MARK programming, Making Art Reach Kids.
These programs encourage creativity in our youth through creative workshops, educational programs, visiting artists and touring exhibits. Drama Warehouse is a month-long workshop that pairs literacy and drama. Since 1994, NCLAC has presented Drama Warehouse in Lincoln, Jackson, Bienville, Claiborne and Union parishes.
