WAC continues season with diverse offerings

Posted: January 7, 2018 at 1 a.m.

“An American in Paris” — based on the eponymous 1951 Academy Award winner for Best Picture starring Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron brings romance, song and dance to the Walton Arts Center stage when it opens Feb. 6.

A new year marks a fresh start -- new and exciting possibilities. That could also describe the spring semester of the Walton Arts Center 2017-18 season. With more than 30 shows between now and the end of May -- not to mention Artosphere's jam-packed schedule coming in June -- the WAC in Fayetteville strives to leave no entertainment palette unsatisfied with internationally lauded musicians, Broadway productions, comedic offerings, family programming and more. But this shouldn't surprise anyone who's lived in Northwest Arkansas for more than a few days. What may come as a surprise is the sheer volume of performances and events you find yourself or someone else in the family dying to go see.
