ON-SITE Dining & PARKING NEARBY
TheatreSquared performs, builds, produces, and rehearses each production at Northwest Arkansas’s brand-new, 50,000-square-foot, dedicated new home for theatre at 477 W. Spring St. in downtown Fayetteville, Arkansas.
The Commons Bar/Café at the new T2 is open all day, featuring hearth-style artisan pizzas, charcuterie and cheese boards, fresh gourmet salads, toasted baguette sandwiches, baked delicacies, and more. A full café menu in the mornings—with espresso and steamed drinks plus nitro and cold brew on tap—transitions to an evening beverage selection of craft beer, premium wine, and cocktails. Opens Tuesday through Saturday at 8:30am and 11am on Sundays. In a hurry? Try the Grab & Go.
Paid parking is available in the municipal lots adjacent to the theatre at $1/hour, up to a maximum of $5 for the full day’s stay. Free evening parking is available in various locations near the downtown area. For detailed parking information, view the City of Fayetteville's parking map.
We recommend the Spring Street Deck, a 250-space covered garage at the intersection of Spring and West. The new garage and all downtown City lots operate on a pay-by-space model. Save time and skip the line at the kiosk by downloading the iPhone or Android app available here:

Arts IN NWA
The Northwest Arkansas region is home to world-class arts institutions and unique local arts experiences.
Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art
Founded in 2005 and just a 30-minute drive from TheatreSquared in Bentonville, AR, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is home to one of the world's most significant collections of American art, from early history to the modern day. With free admission sponsored by Walmart Stores, the museum "welcomes all to celebrate the American spirit in a setting that unites the power of art with the beauty of landscape."
Walton Arts Center
Arkansas's largest and busiest performing arts center is just down the street from TheatreSquared. Walton Arts Center "brings great performing artists and entertainers from around the world to Northwest Arkansas, connecting and engaging people through inspiring arts experiences." Programs include touring theatrical productions, live music on a large and small scale, and numerous other events. TheatreSquared was previously a resident company with Walton Arts Center.
While TheatreSquared is currently Northwest Arkansas's only professional theatre offering a year-round performance season, the region also boasts a thriving community, youth, and experimental theatre scene. Trike Theatre in Bentonville and Arts Live Theatre in Fayetteville specialize in performances and training for children (learn about TheatreSquared's youth offerings here); Arts Center of the Ozarks and Arkansas Public Theatre offer quality community productions by volunteer performers year-round; and the Artist's Laboratory Theatre in Fayetteville explores storytelling through experimental theatre performances.
