A unique, professional live theatre experience.
T2 productions are bold, intimate and original. T2's trademark intimacy at every show means that exceptional artists performing great works are literally feet away. Scripts are selected for quality of storytelling, including many which have never been performed—and might never be performed—in the state or region. Each play, whether contemporary, classic, or World Premiere, is newly envisioned and staged here in Northwest Arkansas, and can only be seen here.
Education that inspires Arkansas youth.
More than 18,000 students and teachers take part in TheatreSquared productions, classroom workshops and training academies each year. Students attend from close to home and in schools throughout the state — from Fayetteville to Mena, Bentonville to Searcy, Rogers to the Arkansas Delta. Rigorous, empirical studies have shown that watching a TheatreSquared show is a transformative experience for underserved kids.
A home for artists in Northwest Arkansas.
TheatreSquared is one of only two fully professional theatre companies offering a year-round season in the state. Directors, actors, and designers are compensated for their work on a national scale. Many are affiliated with professional unions, including Actors' Equity Association, United Scenic Artists, and the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society. T2 holds auditions throughout the year in NWA, Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. Skilled local and national professionals spend months in residence at TheatreSquared — reimaginging, rehearsing, and performing each work.
