Parkview Drama Program
"Where all the world is our stage."
The Parkview Drama program opens a world of theatrical opportunity to students with state of the art facilities, advanced theatre arts classes, and professional theatre instructors. Parkview students perform across the Little Rock metro area including historic Mt. Holly Cemetery, the Clinton Presidential Center, Pinnacle Mountain State Park, the Arkansas State Capital, schools, nursing homes, and at community events.
The world truly is our stage. Come. Be a part of that world.
Ninth Grade One Act: Crushed
Audiences enjoyed the hilarious show featuring two teenagers who were guided though the "do's" and "don'ts" of the dating world. The show was Thursday January 16th at 7pm in Babbs Hall. Canned foods were accepted and donated to The Arkansas Rice Depot.
Dating is awful but Guy and Girl are pretty pathetic. Rather than interact with other humans, they've retreated to their own personal fantasy worlds of sappy romantic comedies and violent video games. Luckily, their hours of gorging on ice cream and battling imaginary enemies cause them to hallucinate their own spirit guides to romance, who will gleefully usher them into the world of dating, starting with lessons in what not to do. Don Zolidis' Crushed is a hilarious and wild look at the pitfalls of having a crush.

Arkansas Adventures Hits the Road!
Parkview's Drama Department toured an original show about Arkansas history to four LRSD elementary schools on Thursday, Oct. 17th with a cast of twenty actors and two student directors / playwrights.
Tales of the Crypt
Parkview Arts-Science Magnet High School performed “Tales of the Crypt” on Tuesday evening, October 8 to 1,531 visitors to Mount Holly Cemetery. Forty one Parkview students took part to help make this year’s presentation successful. The students efforts help fund some of the needed work to Little Rock’s most historical cemetery whose only way to bring in money is through a small amount from the city Little Rock raised from property taxes. As all cemetery plots have been sold, revenue to help other necessary improvements must come through other sources and “Tales of the Crypt” helps meet that need. Congratulations to all the students who worked hard to make this event happen.
Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre
The Parkview acting classes presented four showings of "Art May Escape You" on September 27th & 28th and October 4th & 5th. This was an original play written by Lauren Richards and Maddy Meigs. The presentation took place at the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History located in MacArthur Park with performers from Parkview’s acting classes. The art work featured during the show was that of Ian Turpin, a senior at Parkview. We would very much like to thank everyone who attended these performances.
