In the Spring of 1975, the Board of Directors of the Ohio Theatre Alliance expressed concern about the quality and quantity of theatre programs in Ohio high schools. Wanting to become involved in helping high school theatre programs, but realizing they lacked data upon which meaningful action could be based, the Board directed that a survey (of the status) of Ohio high school theatre programs be undertaken. The author was charged with that responsibility and this report-- an attempt to quantitatively describe the state of theatre programs in Ohio high schools in the 1975-1976 academic year--is a result of that action.
