Arts Live Theatre and Rose of Sharon

This past weekend we started a new program with Arts Live Theatre, Northwest Arkansas' children and youth theatre company.  Small bouquets will be available for purchase before each show, and a portion of the profits from each sale will be donated to ALT.  

ALT just finished 'Anne Frank and Me.'  My stepdaughter's best friend was in this play, and it was riveting!  We went on Thursday night (the 2nd performance of five).  It really is amazing what these kids can do with just a few props and a stage.  

I had a great time watching the cast and crew prepare before each show.  I could see how much fun they were having and how close the group had become.  And these kids really put a lot of effort into the productions!   By Sunday, you could see that everyone was tired--5 performances in 4 days is tough!  And they do it on top of school and other obligations as well.  

The next performance will be 'Oliver Twist' with performances March 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th.  'The Secret Garden'  will be April 14-17, 2011.  We'll be there with flowers and support...hope you will be, too!

1st night: buckets of flowers and materials.
