See Trike Theatre’s Shows
Trike Theatre is Northwest Arkansas’s only professional theatre for youth and families. Our plays are performed in a no-shush zone! Meaning? If some of our youngest audience members get enthused mid-show, we actually like it and roll with it.
Our Next Shows:
The Jungle book
Deep in an Indian jungle skulks the tiger Shere Khan. Mowgli, a human girl, must learn the language of the jungle to face this fierce hunter down. An original adaptation of this well-known story, The Jungle Book mixes theatrical storytelling with classical Indian dance. A collaboration of Trike Theatre, Ra-Ve Cultural Foundation and Megha Rao of Dhirana Dance, this performance features NWA youth actors and dancers amid professional adult actors. Join us to witness the strength of the jungle in The Jungle Book.

alice’s adventures in wonderland
Presented by Trike’s Resident Acting Company (TRAC) students.
It’s a very ordinary and rather boring day for Alice until she spots a White Rabbit with a pocket watch whizzing through a world that’s beyond imagination! Her insatiable curiosity draws her into a madcap adventure in which she meets remarkable characters like the Caterpillar, Talking Flowers, a Duchess and her Cook, a Gryphon and Mock Turtle, a Mad Hatter and a March Hare. When Alice finally catches up with the White Rabbit in the Queen’s Court, she’s in for her biggest adventure of all. The wonder-filled world of Alice is a fantastic journey for the adventurous of any age.
