Almost two hours northwest of Springfield sits the historic rural town of El Dorado Springs, with a population of just over 3,500 people. A stone’s throw down Main Street, right off Highway 54, is First Baptist Church, which is home to the Lighthouse Children’s Theatre. This theatre program, started by local resident Lynne Hedrick, provides kids, ages three to seventeen, the opportunity to experience the fine arts through drama and music productions. And, according to Hedrick, the program has bonded the community together. KSMU’s Rebekah Clark has more.
