WAC continues to provide top shows in excellent venue. Thanks to the support of local/national sponsors, we see great Broadway Series shows at a fraction of the cost compared to other cities. Every seat is a good seat in this theater and the renovated lobby is first class.

We have attended a few events now since the reopening. The SONA symphony produced a wonderful holiday musical concert. The Broadway show program is coming soon. Those that saw The Book of Mormon said it was wonderful. Don't miss the regional artists sale in the shop.

This is my very favorite place to go in Fayetteville. They have wonderful shows and the theater is not huge so every seat is a great seat.

Walton money made this theater what it is. The best live stage presentations in N.W. Arkansas. Easy to get to and Dickson Street university bar scene all around.. Plenty of action.

The Walton Arts Center is a proud landmark of Arts Excellence. One of the first multi-use, entertainment-education facilities in the region. It's significance to the quality of life of NW Arkansas can not be over estimated. A superb place of joy and inspiration.

I have seen many broadway musicals here as well as single performers. There is not a bad seat in the house. Parking used to be a nightmare but that has changed since the new parking garage was built. We always go early enough to eat and walk around Dickson st. before the shows. They have a lot of entertainers lined... More

We bought tickets to watch Beauty & the Beast. It was a great show. They let you into the theater 30 minutes before the show, however you are able to get into the building much earlier than that to purchase snacks, and gifts. Everyone who worked they was very nice. The only I would say is not to spend a... More

My family and friends love to come here for enjoying amazing artists and trending plays. The price is worth every penny as any seat in the theater is directly in view of the stage.

As a short time resident of NWA I am so grateful to have the Walton Arts Centers in the area. They always promote great performances and bring the hottest Broadway shows to NWA. At the present time, WAC is undergoing a wonderful renovation. For what it was announced recently this renovation is to be done with by November 2016. Although... More
