TheatreSquared’s locally produced and nationally acclaimed productions reach 24,000 patrons each year. The company is Northwest Arkansas’s only year-round professional theatre, offering a unique audience experience in its intimate 175-seat theatre at Walton Arts Center’s Nadine Baum Studios. In 2011, TheatreSquared was recognized by the American Theatre Wing, founder of the Tony Awards, as one of the nation’s ten most promising emerging theatres.
TheatreSquared’s audience includes more than 12,000 students and their teachers. The theatre partners with teachers and schools from Northwest Arkansas to the Delta Region, working to give students across Arkansas access to live performances and leading arts-based learning tools.
A professional company, TheatreSquared employs trained artists from across the country to create its 160 annual performances, and is contracted with Actors' Equity Association. The theatre is also Arkansas’s home for professional playwrights, developing scripts through the Arkansas New Play Festival in Fayetteville and Little Rock and producing new works and world premieres each year.
Now in its eighth season, TheatreSquared’s work remains rooted in its founding vision, that “theatre—done well and with passion—can transform lives and communities.”
