At the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts, we believe in the power of live theatre to shape young lives. That’s why we’ve been writing, producing, and staging exceptional live theatre for youth and family audiences for more than 40 years.
Based on contemporary stories and classic tales, a variety of stage performances will come to life at the new AMFA with fantastic characters, brilliant lighting, colorful costumes, and a little magic.
Expect to see new, innovative productions from across the country – and the world – performed for youth and family audiences starting in 2023.
Digital submissions are now open for our inaugural year of programming! AMFA welcomes digital auditions, resumes, and portfolios from professional adult artists.
AMFA is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in our organization, community, and beyond. We are seeking a broad spectrum of artists, and people of all ages, races, gender, backgrounds, and abilities are encouraged to apply.
Paid positions are open: actors, directors, musicians, technicians, designers, playwrights, choreographers, composers, music directors, and teaching artists are all encouraged to submit materials via email.
Auditions for youth actors will be announced in early 2023.
