‘Stone Soup’ Closes the Season at Arkansas Arts Center Children's Theatre
The final show of the season is taking the stage at the Arkansas Arts Center Children's Theatre. "Stone Soup" will close out the spring before the exciting 2018-2019 season starts in the fall.
This classic story is full of earnest charm, playful imagination and heart-warming music.
One day, a lovable wanderer came upon a little house at the end of a long road. “Hello inside,” he called. “Is anyone home? I’m a hungry traveler who wants food to feed his tummy.” A little woman peeked out and smiled. Then she opened her door. Delighted, the traveler stepped inside to discover a treasure even more precious than a pot of delicious soup: he found a friend.
The Arkansas Arts Center’s production of "Stone Soup" was adapted from the folk tale and is directed by Keith Smith.
The show takes the stage every Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. from April 24-May 13. Tickets range from $10-$12.50. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets.
