Arkansas Public Theatre to present STUPID KID in March 2019

Arkansas Public Theatre (APT) will present STUPID KID by Sharr White, on March 22-24 and 28-31, 2019. This is the first non-professional production of STUPID KID being done by special arrangement from the playwright.

Playwright Sharr White has molded the riveting study of a family under the worst kind of stress imaginable – for this is stress which doesn’t go away with time and only gets more and more intolerable as the years roll by—with hilarious results. Stupid Kid weaves the tale of 14-year old Chick Ford, who is tried as an adult and convicted of his girlfriend’s rape and murder, a crime which he swears he didn’t commit. Fourteen years go by, and the Innocence Project becomes involved in his case – only to find that his DNA suggests that he did not kill the victim. When Chick is released from prison at 28, he returns home to poverty-ridden East Colorado to find that his family is flat broke and less than welcoming. This production contains adult language and content and is recommended for mature audiences.

Curtain time for Thursday thru Saturday performances is 8 p.m. with Sunday performances at 2 p.m. Doors and Concessions open at 7:00 pm. Cabaret Seats are $29/per person or $48/table (includes 2 individual seats) and Balcony Seats are $22/per person. Group discounts for 10 or more guests are available by contacting the Box Office. Tickets may be purchased on the APT website at or at the APT Box Office at 479-631-8988. All performances will be held at the historic Victory Theater, 116 S 2nd St, Rogers, AR 72756.
