Score One Free For The Kids

New WAC program engages whole family

Some parents may take their children to the theater every chance they get so they can bond over a shared love of the live art form (or just over the show tunes). And some parents may simply be looking for a family-friendly activity to get everyone out of the house during the winter break. In either case, the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville offers a fun new program fit for the whole family with Kids Night on Broadway.

WHEN — 1:30 p.m. Dec. 21; activities begin at 12:30 p.m.
