TheatreSquared in Arkansas returns to in-person 2021 performances this April.




It didn’t go entirely as planned. But in the year that’s passed, we’ve marked unexpected, welcome successes, with the advent of our acclaimed streaming programs (called the year’s best by The New York Times), the 2020 American Architecture Award, and superlative national reviews (“Outstanding drama company” – The Wall Street Journal). 

None of this would have been possible without your patience, generosity, and flexibility throughout this crisis. With your steadfast support, TheatreSquared has been able to innovate and continue creating world-class theatre right here in Northwest Arkansas. 


Today, we announce our updated, final 2021 calendar with a return to in-person performances this April. 

First, in March, we’re thrilled to host the return of the multitalented duo James Taylor Odom (Scrooge in our hit 2019 A Christmas Carol) and Brian Walters for a special encore streaming production of Murder for Two, taking the place of Twelfth Night. This hilarious and virtuosic musical quickly sold out its initial run in 2016. The cast and creative team are at the theatre even now in final rehearsals, and streaming begins March 17. We’ll welcome audiences back to the theatre on April 28 for the darkly hilarious At the Wedding — and the lineup of remarkable, live theatre continues at full speed after that. From My Father’s War, to Matilda the Musical, to the music-filled American Mariachi, to the world premiere of Designing Women and the five-time Tony-nominated musical Violet, the remainder of your 2021 is jam-packed with amazing live theatre.


We’ve taken aggressive steps to maximize safety at our state-of-the-art theatre, with fresh air resupplied at an air change rate exceeding six times per hour, MERV-13 filtration, safely distanced seating maps, universal PPE requirements, and frequent testing of all artists and crew by our on-staff, advanced practitioner nurse, all reviewed by an infectious disease specialist. Prefer to stay home for now? Not to worry—with the exception of Matilda, we’ve also secured permissions to simultaneously live stream every show. 

You’ve already got your tickets. All we need to hear from you is your viewing preference. Please reach out as soon as possible — in-person seating remains extremely limited until community case numbers and public health guidance allow for an easing of restrictions.

On May 19, we’ll also be announcing our Season 16 lineup of six exciting new productions continuing through June of 2022. We’ll reach out to you first regarding your auto-renewal preferences in advance of that date so that we can keep your seats held. 

Thank you for the tremendous commitment you’ve shown our region’s theatre over the past 12 months. Together, we’ve adapted to these unbelievably strange circumstances, and this grand re-opening is made possible by your unflagging loyalty and support.
