Fall activities and ways to celebrate the arts are looking a little different this year - as is everything. Lucky for us, many of Fayetteville’s theatres and studios are taking performances, classes and acts to the virtual stage. We are so excited to see that Art’s Live Theatre is expanding its education offerings throughout the year with the goal of putting young artists at center stage.
