Children's Theatre on Tour
by Keith Smith
November 14 – December 17, 2017
The North Pole has never known a more mischievous elf than Jack Frost, and this year his antics are more rascally than ever. In fact, he’s the number one elf on Santa’s list—and I don’t mean his good list. Yes, jolly old St. Nick is at his wits end. He’s so distracted by Jack’s bad behavior that he can’t even do his work. It’s a good thing that wise old Mrs. Claus is around to take her two high-spirited boys in hand and save the day—Christmas Day, that is.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. “Hold it right there! Why? Can you see your house from up there? Is the weather better up there? Or do you just like looking down on things?” Good questions all, and one curious little girl is out to get some answers, beginning with: “Where did you come from, Mr. Egg, and how in the world did you get way up there? Now don’t try to duck the question, or I will cry fowl. Did you make a brave leap? Or are you too chicken for that? Or perhaps you were goosed! Tell me how? Tell me how?”
Dorothy in Oz
by Keith Smith, based on the stories of L. Frank Baum
April 10 – May 13, 2018
Once upon a time, a simple young lady from the plain Kansas prairie was swept away on a whirlwind adventure into a land of awesome beauty, surprising creatures, and wonderful magic. Now she’s going back. It may be true that there’s no place like home, but, for Dorothy Gale, there’s no place like Oz, either. That’s why she’s so determined to return to reunite with all her old friends—and meet new ones as well. The only question is: how will she get there this time? Cyclone? Sea voyage gone awry? Earthquake? An enchanted road? It seems that all ways lead to Oz if you can just find the right one for you.

Young Arkansas Artists on Tour
The Young Arkansas Artists (YAA) on Tour is organized by the Arkansas Arts Center with the cooperation of the Arkansas Department of Education. Selected works from the 56th annual exhibition at the AAC will tour the state in 2017–2018. Creations by the state’s young artists demonstrate a great range, from the outpouring of youthful expression to more sophisticated artwork from higher grade levels. YAA on Tour showcases the talent of Arkansas’ youth and inspires young artists to achieve—and perhaps exceed—the talent of their peers in the pursuit of a lifelong relationship with the arts.
