The Donna Summer Musical
September 15 – 20, 2020

Toot toot, hey, beep beep!” 
Say those words, and you’ll immediately feel the beat, the spirit, the heat of the legendary Donna Summer. Her songs smashed every record. Her story shattered every barrier. Now, the queen arrives direct from Broadway. 

After a twice extended, sold-out run at San Diego’s celebrated La Jolla Playhouse, SUMMER: The Donna Summer Musical, partied on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre and is now strutting its way across North America on a National Tour.

What the Constitution Means to Me
January 26 – 31, 2021

Direct from Broadway, the 2019 Tony® nominated Best Play and Pulitzer Prize finalist. Playwright Heidi Schreck’s boundary-breaking play breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of Americans. 

Waitress 
May 4 – 9, 2021

Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.” When a baking contest in a nearby county — and a satisfying encounter with someone new — show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.

The Prom
June 1- 6, 2021

Everyone’s invited to the joyous Broadway hit that New York Magazine calls “smart and big-hearted” and The New York Times declares it “makes you believe it musical comedy again”!

Hadestown
June 1- 6, 2021

Hadestown intertwines two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers, and singers, this is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets’s go.

Winner of eight 2019 Tony® Awards, this acclaimed new musical by celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) is a love story for today… and always.

OKLAHOMA!

Over 75 years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this is OKLAHOMA! as you’ve never seen or heard it before – reimagined for the 21st century. 

Stripped down to reveal the darker psychological truths at its core, Daniel Fish’s production tells a story of a community circling its wagons against an outsider and the frontier life that shaped America. Upending the sunny romance of a farmer and a cowpoke, this OKLAHOMA! allows the classic musical – and our country – to be seen in a whole new light. 

Information is available at www.attpac.org/broadway. Subscriptions may also be purchased from your Corporate Concierge or by phone at 214-880-0202. For groups of 10 or more please call 214-978-2879.

© 2011 Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss. By special arrangement with Pippin Properties, Inc. and Gurman Agency LLC.

The coolest ever rock-n-roll romp through a bug’s world commands center stage in this hip-hoppin’ musical that promotes eco-consciousness, earth science, and tolerance of others. The popular characters from the bestselling books are not so unusual: Worm eats his homework and has no legs. Fly has 327 siblings and wants to be a superhero. And Spider can’t wait to grow up and molt.

When Fly’s Aunt Rita needs help getting out of a tight spot, the squad must combine their talents and work as a team on the rescue mission of a lifetime. While there’s no pop quiz, you might just learn that a bug’s life isn’t that different from your own.

Get to know all the critters in the class!

Worm, Spider, and Fly have been studying their environment all year long… and now they are ready to share the facts they have learned with you and your family.

Before each performance for a critter-themed craft that will have you bugging out big time. As is tradition, photo ops abound and actors will sign autographs at all performances. And, exclusively after the show on opening night, all are welcome to cool off with a snow cone from Big D Kona Ice.

Dallas Children’s Theater
June 14 – July 7, 2019 – Ages 3 and up

Book, Music & Lyrics by Joan Cushing
