- ROLLA DAILY NEWS: “The Diviners,” by Jim Leonard Jr. is Ozark Actors Theatre, third and final production of the 25th Anniversary Season and it is my hope that the community supports this production with the same enthusiasm that it has shown the first two productions. It certainly deserves community support, as it is one of the most thought provoking and moving plays of the contemporary theatre and is directed by F. Reed Brown with great sensitivity… A wonderful production… The performances given in this play are outstanding. It has been interesting to watch many of these actors, who have performed in all three of OAT’s summer productions, transition from musical theatre, to comedy, and now to this serious drama. We certainly have had some versatile and talented actors in our midst this summer and those who have missed these summer productions have missed some real virtuosity. “The Diviners,” has a tight ensemble of eleven actors who have created fully developed characters.
