CONWAY — Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre at the University of Central Arkansas has announced Chad Bradford as its new managing director.

“We are Arkansas’ only professional theatre company that focuses on classic and mythic tales. This uniquely positions us to tell imaginative and life-changing stories while promoting UCA’s educational mission,” Bradford said. “Recent studies have proven that arts education can lead to higher academic scores and increased levels of empathy. Therefore, the future of AST will include a more robust educational element. We are also interested in partnering with other Arkansas’ based institutions to strengthen our impact.”
