Arkansas Weekend Planner ~ November 13 – 15, 2015


The weather is cooling off and Thanksgiving plans are being made. It’s the perfect time to get out and enjoy our state. Check out some of the events happening in Arkansas this weekend. If you know of others, please let us know in the comments.

Pippin ~Fayetteville


Pippin is Broadway’s high-flying, death-defying hit musical. Full of extraordinary acrobatics, wondrous magical feats and soaring songs from the composer of Wicked, it will lift you up and leave you smiling. This unforgettable new production is the winner of four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival. Hailed as “an eye-popping, jaw-dropping extravaganza,” it’s unlike anything Broadway has ever seen. Come experience one young man’s journey to be extraordinary.
