Community Invited to Holiday Events at UACCM

The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton invites the community to “The Gingerbread Man” on Nov. 29, followed by its 14th annual Night of Luminaries on Dec. 1.

“The Gingerbread Man” is a touring production presented by the Arkansas Arts Center Children’s Theatre in Little Rock. Running from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the UACCM Fine Arts Auditorium, the show tells the classic fairy tale story of the Gingerbread Man, who attempts to outrun the local residents and a very sly fox. Tickets are now available, though limited to four per person. Admission is free and open to the public. 

Night of Luminaries follows the Morrilton Christmas parade and will be held on campus. The sidewalks of UACCM will be lined with more than 2,000 luminary bags, decorated by Conway County children, and the community is invited to walk or drive through to view their artwork. Participating schools and organizations that helped decorate luminary bags include the Conway County Center for Exceptional Children, Morrilton Primary, Morrilton Elementary, Morrilton Intermediate, Nemo Vista Elementary, Sacred Heart Elementary, Wonderview Elementary, Riverview Baptist Christian School, and UACCM’s Earle Love Child Study Center.

Santa Claus will also be available to visit with children and hand out gifts in the area between the Fine Arts Building and Business Technology Center at UACCM. Families are invited to bring their camera to take pictures with him, and to also enjoy cookies and hot cocoa served by UACCM faculty and staff.

Be sure to check the UACCM Facebook page for any last-minute updates in the event of winter weather in the forecast. For more information about any of these holiday events, contact Kristi Strain at (501) 977-2081, or by email at

***An earlier copy of this press release incorrectly stated that Night of Luminaries is scheduled for Dec. 3. That has been changed to the correct date, Dec. 1. The event will still follow the Morrilton Christmas parade.
