OCTA offers workshop days during the year for anyone to attend.  The location varies depending on community theatres across the state that offer to host and use their facility.  Registration includes the entire day of workshops plus lunch.  Subjects depend on what our members have requested help with or expressed interest.

Broken Arrow Community Playhouse hosted in 2010 with workshops on Grant Writing, Costuming for Pennies, Managing Volunteers and  Diversifying Your Community Theatre.

Town and Gown Theatre (Stillwater) hosted  in 2011 with workshops on Digital Marketing (website), Auditioning, and Internet Ticketing.

Poteet Theatre (Oklahoma City) hosted in 2012 with workshops on Producing a Shorts Festival as a Fundraiser, Using Auditions to Build Your Volunteer Pool and Stage Management 101.

Heller Theatre (Tulsa) hosted in 2013 with workshops on Making the Impossible - Possible:  Directing Ethnic Dance & Music Shows, Performance Improv, Building Diversity in Your Theatre, and Theatre Etiquette in the Digital Age.

After a long absence, the OCTA Youth Workshops returned in 2014.  They are held annually at the end of spring break.
