A passion for the performing arts can begin at an early age. Arts Education performances give our youngest audience members the opportunity to experience live performing arts in our historic Wayne Theatre. The mission of this program is to present the best educational theater that engages children of all ages in meaningful ways, complements school curricula, and cultivates appreciation of the performing arts. (When available, links to study guides are offered below.)

Field trips to live theater enhance literary knowledge, tolerance and empathy among students, according to a study published by researchers in the University of Arkansas Department of Education Reform. (read full article)

All of our arts programming is open to all ages and open to the public. Buses and large groups are welcome but advance tickets are required.
