The Arlene James Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable enterprise devoted to facilitating, funding, producing, directing, and/or sponsoring community activities through the fields of literature, art, theater, dance, and music.

Doing business as NEXT STEP PRODUCTIONS, we are currently involved in an outdoor, musical production of A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, which will be performed free to the public on November 28, 2018. Our goal is to raise at least $5,000 for a new children's hospital in our area (NW Arkansas).
