About Us

TheatreSquared’s locally produced and nationally acclaimed productions reach more than 55,000 patrons each year. The company is Northwest Arkansas’s theatre, offering a unique audience experience of immersive, professional productions in an intimate setting. Its work has been recognized with critical acclaim by The New York Times (“Best Theater of 2020” list), The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, NPR’s All Things Considered, and the American Theater Wing, founder of the Tony Awards.

TheatreSquared’s audience includes tens of thousands of students and their teachers. The theatre partners with schools from Northwest Arkansas to the Delta Region, working to give students across Arkansas access to live performances and arts-based learning tools.

A professional company, TheatreSquared employs trained artists from across the country to create its 320 annual performances at the theatre, in schools, and online. The theatre is also one of mid-America’s leading homes for professional playwrights, developing scripts through the Arkansas New Play Festival and producing new works and world premieres each year.

TheatreSquared’s home—winner of the 2020 American Architecture Award, the AIA New York State Honor Award, and an Interior Design Best of Year Award—is a cultural landmark in Northwest Arkansas. The 50,000-square-foot campus unites two intimate theatres, rehearsal space, a three-level commons and café, outdoor gathering spaces, production workshops, offices, and artists’ apartments. Campaign efforts are in their closing phase — learn more at ournextstage.org.

Since its founding in 2005, TheatreSquared’s work has remained rooted in its founding vision, that “theatre—done well and with passion—can transform lives and communities.”
