Construction begins today on Walton Arts Center building that was closed earlier this summer. Contractors will be adding steel to reinforce the trusses in the roof. It will take approximately four weeks to secure the trusses, after which the WAC Box Office, lobby and Starr Theater will reopen. The theater will reopen at the start of the new WAC season in September.

Walton Arts Center will kick off our season in Baum Walker Hall with our opening show, Dr. John and the Nite Trippers and local musical guest, the Cate Brothers, on Sunday, Sept. 28. Tickets can be purchased for Dr. John and our entire season on the web at or by calling 479.443.5600. Subscriptions can be renewed or reserved now and single tickets to all Broadway and regular season shows will be available later this week. Subscription benefits include early access, free exchanges and discounts.
