We are saddened to report Arkansas Repertory Theatre has suspended operations and the production of God of Carnage has been cancelled. We are pleased to announce a new venue thanks to Argenta Community Theatre. This wonderful local theatre has extended us a special offer to host a preview showing of the musical Big River on Thursday, July 19. Adapted from the novel by Mark Twain, Big River is a family-friendly, timeless classic and an opportunity for us all to renew a commitment to local theatre.

Twain's timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Their adventures along the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming, bringing to life your favorite characters from the novel-the Widow Douglas and her stern sister, Miss Watson; the uproarious King and Duke, who may or may not be as harmless as they seem; Huck's partner in crime, Tom Sawyer, and their rowdy gang of pals; Huck's drunken father, the sinister Pap Finn; the lovely Mary Jane Wilkes and her trusting family. Propelled by an award winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.
