ABOUT US: Five & Dime Drama Collective was established by a group of Eureka Springs authors, actors and artists, including Director Larry Horn and local playwright Tom Gorsuch. Kenn Woodard is our Executive Creative Producer. We seek works that challenge our audiences intellectually and artistically. We do not limit content or language. At this time, we produce only work by and intended for adults, and only in English. We provide publicity throughout Northwest Arkansas and handle venue arrangements in Eureka Springs.

We are in our fourth season. Our past performances have included a multimedia play, a poetry slam showcase, ten minute plays, and a lyric poem adapted to the stage. We encourage the use of varied disciplines and genres (prose, poetry, rap, etc.). We prefer work with an emphasis on language rather than musicals, although weaving music, movement or other artistic elements into the performance is encouraged.
