Trike Theatre

About the only thing more theatrical than live music is live theatre. When we get to work together, Trike Theatre complements the APO marvellously with transforming performances from its young performers. Trike's mission is to cultivate creativity, build character and strengthen community in its players, but they do the same for us.





Northwest Arkansas' professional theatre for youth that provides professional theatre productions, literacy integrated drama residencies and drama academy programs.The mission of Trike Theatre is to Cultivate Creativity, Build Character, and Strengthen Community through its vision of transforming the lives of young people through exceptional theatre experiences.


We believe in A 360˚ Theatre Experience that empowers young people and families. The 360˚ theatre experience is Trike Theatre's DNA – the lens through which we view and program everything. It is reflected in our three programs (Theatre for Youth, Academy and Outreach). And in each of those programs, participants will SEE, LEARN and DO.

We create a safe, inclusive space where we all take risks, celebrate our mistakes, find our artistic voices by deepening and expanding our individual talents. We create community through our classes, production ensembles, and through our events. We are a catalyst for bringing together the larger community through our productions and partnerships. We celebrate the messy and joyful creative process. We give everyone permission to play, experiment and encourage sharing, reflection, imagination, exploration and creating work that is original and of value. Cultivating courage builds empathy and the self-confidence that allows the imagination to flourish. Individual Courage to take risks, make mistakes, speak out, stand up for what's right, understand another point of view. Group Courage to support each other, try new things and work together to tell compelling stories. Artistic Courage to push ourselves toward new artistic experiences that challenge and inspire both staff and our students.
