Center on the Square - Live Theater in Searcy, Arkansas


Spring KidStage performances

March 15 - 17, 2018

Come see both shows for one ticket price!

Imagine That! A Musical Review - The power goes out and a group of kids is left wondering what to do.  How about using imagination? 

Written by Penny Turpin and Kayli O'Neal.

15 Reasons Not To Be In A Play - This is a play about not being in a play, ironically expressed through a hilarious series of monologues, duets, and ensemble scenes. From early traumas involving a glory-seeking elementary school teacher to possible disturbances in the global climate, 15 Reasons Not To Be in a Play keeps the audience guessing just what scenario will be next.

Written by Alan Haehnel.

Arsenic and Old Lace

By Joseph Kesselring

April 6-7, 13-14, 20-21 at 7:30 pm
April 22 at 1:30 pm

We meet the charming and innocent ladies who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously "acceptable" roomers; the antics of their brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, and the activities of the other brother-these require no further description or amplification here. Arsenic and Old Lace is a ready-made comedy hit.
