Where your imagination is our reality.
Creativity, Collaboration and Community.
Power, Passion and Purpose.
The UALR Department of Theatre Arts and Dance strives to help young artists and technicians hone their skills, balancing theory with opportunities to explore the hands-on aspects of the stage. Our mission is to create an environment of exploration, which will release the imagination, reward risk in all areas, and develop the whole person. We’re putting Arkansas on the map as a new leader in innovative theatre.
