Clarksville Little Theater
Clarksville Little Theater has its beginnings in a vision of Clarksville resident Mr. Julius Obermiller. With the help of Clarksville Optimist Club, the George Rogers Clark Parent-Teacher Association and others, Mr. Obermiller staged a musical production in 1947. The first plays took place in the George Rogers Clark School gym. The group moved its plays to the Clarksville Optimist Club, using a portable stage. Members of the troupe stored the stage in their garages when the play was not in production. In 1951 a committee formed for the purpose raised money to buy land and build a theater. The Clarksville Little Theater has operated at that location ever since, holding several productions a year.
To visit this entertaining place in Indiana, you will find it is not far from Interstate 65, near Colgate Park in Clarksville Indiana.
