Dear A.R.T. for Kids Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I am letting you know due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other concerns, we have ceased active operations of Arizona Repertory Theatre for Kids (Art4Kids). Furthermore, we hoped that we would be able to finish our current Wonka production. However, due to these concerns, we will not be able to.

We had four wonderful years of working together developing and learning the process of theatre with your children. We are saddened that it was cut short due to COVID-19. Your children are truly talented and we wish them the best in all their future endeavors.

If you are the parent that registered your child for a particular performance and would like a copy of a show poster or a recording of a particular show, please request via email at Please note some shows were not recorded due to licensing and there will be a fee if we need to provide via DVD or thumb drive.

As far as the future, we are so proud of your kids and know they will continue to grow and we want you to know that we are still here cheering for them!

Thanks, everyone!  Including staff, crew members, parents, and community supporters for your love and dedication over the years. It’s been a good run.

Rachel Evans, CEO
