Recognized by The Drama League as one of the best regional theatre companies in America, the Arkansas Arts Center Children's Theatre is the only professional company in Arkansas that produces children's literary works for the stage. Since 1979, Children's Theatre has been creating exceptional theatre for family audiences. Well-loved contemporary stories and classic tales come to life with fantastic characters, brilliant lighting, colorful costumes and a little magic in our fully-staged productions. There's no sound that delights us more than the gasps of excitement or the bursts of laughter when families enjoy the wonderful capers on stage.

Children's Theatre Restaged

While the Children’s Theatre at the Arkansas Arts Center undergoes a much-needed renovation, Children’s Theatre Restaged will bring the magic of live theatre to stages across Arkansas. In this reimagined format, the Children’s Theatre will expand its touring capacity while the Arts Center’s MacArthur Park facility undergoes its major renovation and expansion project. Children’s Theatre Restaged will also include additional public productions and performances at the Arkansas Arts Center’s temporary location in Riverdale and at other community locations. Details about additional programming will continue to be announced throughout 2019. Main Stage shows will resume in the Arkansas Arts Center’s renovated theater in fall 2022. Read More »
