Upcoming Performing Arts Club Events for 2017-2018
Pride and Prejudice at Water Tower Theater, Addison, TX
Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 2:00 pm
Calling all Jane Austen fans – and everyone else who loves a sparkling comedy about the entanglements of family, love, marriage, and money. As the story of the Bennet daughters and their formidable social-ladder climbing mother unfolds, strong-willed Lizzie charts an independent course as she negotiates very mixed feelings about the aloof and seemingly snobbish Mr. Darcy. This imaginative and irreverent version of this literary classic makes Austen’s deep insights into the foibles of human nature a theatrical treat you won’t forget.
A Christmas Carol at The Dallas Theatre Center (Wyly Theatre)
Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 2:00 pm
NOTE: this is a different production than the 2017 version we attended last season.

‘Tis the season to be jolly, when the family-favorite, holiday production of A Christmas Carol returns to the Wyly Theatre. In this delightfully re-imagined take on Dickens’ enduring classic the audience is surrounded by the actors, with magical ghosts flying above, scary ghosts bursting out of the floor, and snow falling on everyone. Full of traditional Christmas hymns and songs in fresh, toe-tapping musical arrangements, joyful bursts of choreography, and eye-popping special effects, A Christmas Carol is Dallas’ favorite “must-see” holiday tradition.
