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.
