Children’s Theatre on Tour Coming to Preschool!

The Arkansas Arts Center Children’s Theatre on Tour will perform The Engine That Thought It Could at Hobgood Auditorium on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 9:30 am. Children’s Theatre on Tour is part of the State Services program at the Arkansas Arts Center, the state’s premiere center for visual and performing arts with a renowned collection of international art.

The Children’s Theatre on Tour invites Smackover Preschool children and parents along on this classic tale of determination. Join in as Millie, the Little Engine, learns that hard work pays off even when faced with adversity.  The play is written by Alan Keith Smith and based on the 1906 story by Reverend Charles S. Wing.

“The Children’s Theatre on Tour brings the magic of the theatre to thousands of children and families across the state,” said Arkansas Arts Center executive director Todd Herman. “Every year, their performances wow the audiences and create extraordinary theatre experiences that educate, challenge and inspire young people and their communities.”

Children’s Theatre on Tour will be traveling to tour locations around the state from April 1 to May 9 performing The Engine That Thought It Could. Although this production closes out the 2013-2014 season, a new line-up of plays will begin touring later this year.

Kindergarten Registration will also be held on Thursday, April 17.
