Arlington's Creative Arts Theatre and School to Move

The Board of Directors believes the move will help them cut costs.



    The Creative Arts Theatre and School, Arlington's 33-year old non-profit children's theater, is moving. 

    The Board of Directors wants to sell the theater space at 1100 W. Randol Mill Road in order to cut costs. They say finding another location will help the theater continue its tradition of bringing shows to a new generation of kids.

    "Our shows are wonderful entertainment for the audience and great education for the cast," executive director Heather Simmons said. "If we want to grow, and we do, it is time to go."

    Negotiations are currently underway to find a new location.

    "We want to continue to serve the families that entrust us with their children's arts education," said Howard Parrish, board president.

    The board is looking at available space within a 10-minute drive of their current location.

    During the transition, regular programming such as shows, classes, and recitals will continue as planned.
