TheatreSquared Adjusts Performance Schedule


TheatreSquared in Fayetteville, AR announced today that in the interest of public health concerning the COVID-19 virus, the company will adjust its performance schedule for the remainder of the 2019/20 Season to support containment efforts in Northwest Arkansas.  

Executive Director Martin Miller said, “We are grateful that the flexibility provided by our new two-venue facility allows us to postpone, rather than cancel, our remaining performances for the season.”

TheatreSquared will provide all ticketholders with a comparable seat for the same production on rescheduled dates, and give full flexibility for subsequent exchanges to any alternate performance if requested. 

For the present, TheatreSquared’s public spaces will remain open and the Commons Bar/Café will continue to operate with reduced hours closing at 8pm each evening. Elevated disinfecting, sanitation and social distancing measures have all been implemented, and takeaway options (including grab & go) are recommended in order to minimize contact while containment efforts continue.

Updates and new dates for these events will be posted to the company’s website at and communicated directly to patrons. 

Randy Stewart joined the full-time KSMU staff in June 1978 after working part-time as a student announcer/producer for two years. His job has evolved from Music Director in the early days to encompassing production of a wide range of arts-related programming and features for KSMU, including the online and Friday morning "Arts News." Stewart assists volunteer producers John Darkhorse (Route 66 Blues Express), Lee Worman (The Gold Ring), and Emily Higgins (The Mulberry Tree) with the production of their programs. He's also become the de facto "Voice of KSMU" in recent years due to the many hours per day he’s heard doing local station breaks. Stewart’s record of service on behalf of the Springfield arts community earned him the Springfield Regional Arts Council's "Ozzie Award" in 2006.
