Arts on the Horizon is a non-profit theatre company with a specific focus of providing performances and education programs for children 0-6.

Arts on the Horizon's performances are designed to take place in an intimate setting where children not only feel comfortable to learn and explore, but are also an integral part of the performance. We have the utmost respect for children and want, what may be their first theatrical performance, to entertain them, challenge them, spark creativity, and enhance the imaginative play in which many children this age engage.

Each education program provides targeted exploration of themes and ideas in order to help children enhance their language development, socialization, and fine and gross motor skills; all within a meaningful, nurturing environment where children can develop their sense of self and increase their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

Performances:

Arts on the Horizon’s inaugural show, Drumming with Dishes, opened in May 2011 in Alexandria, VA. It has since been performed on the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage and at the Atlas Performing Arts Center, as part of the Ford’s Theatre Lincoln Legacy Project in fall 2011. It was also selected to be a part of the national One Theatre World festival in Cleveland, OH in May 2013. Arts on the Horizon’s second production, Out of the Box, premiered in March 2012 in Alexandria, VA and then transferred to the Atlas Performing Arts Center for a one-week engagement as part of their Theatre for the Very Young series. The show was remounted in the fall of 2012, as part of the Kaleidoscope for Kids Festival in Alexandria, VA, and had a repeat engagement at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in November 2012. The Young Spectaculars and the Front Yard Adventure was the company’s third world premiere production, which premiered in February at Downtown Baptist Church in Alexandria, VA and was featured on the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage as part of the 12th Annual Page-to-Stage Festival in August 2013. Drumming with Dishes: The Holiday Edition, a spin-off of the original production, premiered at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA in December 2012 followed by an engagement at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. The show returned to both venues during its remount in December 2013. Under the Canopy marks the company’s first piece geared specifically for children ages 0 – 2 and its fourth world premiere production. The show opened in February 2014 at The Athenaeum in Alexandria, VA. Arts on the Horizon closed its 2013 – 2014 season with the premiere of Sunny and Licorice, which opened in May 2014 at The Lab at Convergence.

The 2014 – 2015 season marks Arts on the Horizon’s third full season of original theatre for very young audiences and includes remounts of Under the Canopy and Sunny and Licorice as well as two world premieres, Snow Day and Blossom’s Rainbow. Three new shows are also currently in development for upcoming seasons.

We have the utmost respect for children and want, what may be their first theatrical performance, to entertain them, challenge them, spark creativity and enhance the imaginative play in which many children this age engage. Our performances are designed to take place in an intimate setting where children not only feel comfortable to learn and explore, but are an integral part of the performance.
