About Arts Live Theatre


To empower children and enrich lives through excellence in children's theatre and education.

Arts Live Theatre, a 501(c)3 non profit children's and youth theatre company, was established in 1983 and incorporated in 1984 as a professional touring company bringing theatre to students throughout the state of Arkansas with an adult cast of professional actors.  In 2000 the mission of Arts Live Theatre was redesigned offering children's and youth theatre by children and youth.  In addition to productions, Arts Live Theatre offered after school classes in theatre.


Currently celebrating 35 years in Northwest Arkansas, Arts Live Theatre is the region's only dedicated children's and youth theatre company.  Arts Live is housed in a 6,000 square foot facility complete with classrooms, theatre, dressing rooms, actor's lounge, scene and costume shop, props storage, and administrative offices.


In 2009 Arts Live, with the acquisition of its new space, increased its production season from three mainstage productions to two main stage musicals and eight second stage productions.  In addition to productions, Arts Live offers a series of after school, spring break and summer camps for grades K-12 in theatre production, acting, television production, radio theatre, reader's theatre and more.


Production auditions and class and camp enrollment is open to any interested student grades K-12.  Arts Live also offers the ALT Scholarship Program to assist in class and participation fees.
