YAG is Fort Smith's national award-winning youth theatre and Arkansas's oldest youth theatre!

Our Mission: To foster a love of the arts and inspire creativity in young people in the River Valley through no-fee, high-quality theatre production opportunities and workshops led by professional theatre artists. WE ARE YAG … and so are YOU!

The Young Actors Guild is proud to host actor and YAG alum, Hunter Doohan, star of Netflix’s “Wednesday” and Showtime’s “Your Honor”
as he talks about his journey from Fort Smith to Los Angeles. He will do a Q&A as well as lead a master class with 10 local pre-selected young actors on auditioning for television and film. 

Don’t miss it! 

Tickets are $25. This includes the Q&A and observing the audition masterclass.

All tickets are General Admission. No refunds because it’s a fundraiser! Thanks for supporting arts education. 

Monday, February 12th at 4:30-6:00 pm
The King Opera House, 427 Main Street, Van Buren, AR. 

 All proceeds benefit the Young Actors Guild.
