Tots To Teens

Theater troupes share stories for youngsters


There have been an abundance of studies over the past 10 years that demonstrate the benefits of exposing children and teens to theater, including higher grades, improved literacy skills, higher graduation rates, lowered disciplinary and attendance issues and greater community engagement. Northwest Arkansas parents might count themselves lucky, then, to be in an area that offers plentiful theater opportunities. This weekend, two of the area's most established youth-centered companies are offering stimulating options for tots to teens.
