WBU Theatre Department Readies For Story Store

It is the time of year when elementary students around Northeast Arkansas become playwrights and Williams Baptist University students bring those stories to life.

Every year, elementary students submit stories to the Story Store, which is an annual production produced in conjunction with Williams Baptist University and the Northeast Arkansas Educational Co-op.

Gifted and Talented students from around the region submit their stories to Melinda Williams, assistant professor of communications arts and director of liberal arts at WBU, and Williams combines their submissions into a play.

Maggie Morgan of Mammoth Spring, Ark., has been in the Story Store cast for the past three years. “I love how much fun I get to have. I have played the same character three years in a row. It is like my character is a continual part of my life. This show is honestly the highlight of my school year,” Morgan said.    MORE
