Whether you are a person that enjoys the magical world of live theater or an amateur actor or technician wanting to do more on stage, The Weekend Theater is the place for you. The Weekend Theater is a non-profit theatrical community that produces socially significant plays for the Central Arkansas community. Although we are called The Weekend Theater, a more descriptive name might be community playhouse. We attempt to be a true community of people dedicated to the teaching, learning and practice of kindness, respect and honor.
The Weekend Theater is a unique black-box theater at the corner of 7th and Chester Streets in Little Rock, Arkansas. The audience can enjoy the intimacy of the small theater in a wonderful, comfortably remodeled theater House with a new stage lighting system to bring The Weekend Theater productions to life. The Weekend Theater is decidedly New York in character – apartments upstairs, theater downstairs, pizza joint/microbrewery across one street, and the local fire station across the other! And a nice-to-know fact about The Weekend Theater is that our productions run on weekends only. And the people who make up The Weekend Theater consist of volunteers, who also work at day-time jobs.
There are many opportunities to become involved at The Weekend Theater, as well as partaking in the excitement of live theater. For the actor, actress, and amateur, there are opportunities to audition for shows, become a member of cast, work backstage with running the lights or sound, stage managing or producing a show. If you are not interested in becoming involved in the production of the theater, there are also opportunities to volunteer your time for a non-profit organization. From volunteering to be the house manager or running the intermission bar to even donating your time to help with small things around the theater.
