Zac Efron sits in an empty theater and shares his story about his passion for the arts in a new PSA for Ovation.

The 23-year-old actor shared, “The first time I got on stage, I was really young, but I’ll never forget the feeling it gave me — that gratification. The key to discovering your dreams in the first place is creativity.”

Ovation is a television channel featuring programming on visual arts, theater, opera, music and dance and can be seen cable systems across the country and the PSA is to support and encourage the next generation of artists.
