Heartfelt and Humorous Performances

 

 

Once on This Island

Feb. 11-16 (8 shows)

In time for Valentine’s Day, Once on This Island will bring a warm island breeze to Northwest Arkansas while welcoming audiences to the tale of Ti Moune as she tries to find her place in the world and tells her story in this breathtaking musical. A timeless testament to theater’s unlimited possibilities, Once on This Island won the 2018 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. Guests can even score an on-stage seat for $25. On-stage seating is limited, so purchase tickets early to be steps away from the island gods and part of the magic of the musical.

 

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo have established themselves as a major dance phenomenon.
