A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens, adapted by Kevin Moriarty, directed by Tiffany Nichole Greene
Dallas’ family-favorite holiday tradition.   

Nov. 28, 30Dec. 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13   Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Potter Rose Performance Hall
Tis the season to be jolly when Dallas’s favorite holiday tradition returns to the Wyly Theatre! Three spirits have come to visit the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, and to take him on a fantastic journey through Christmases past, present, and future that annually delights audiences across North Texas. But will it be enough to save Scrooge’s soul? Brimming with joyful songs, magical spirits, and holiday cheer, Dallas Theater Center’s A Christmas Carol boldly reimagines Dickens’ classic tale of joy, redemption, and the spirit of Christmas.


SWEAT by Lynn Nottage, directed by Tim Bond
From assembly line to picket line, it’s more than just a job. 

January 30     Kalita Humphreys Theater
It’s the year 2000 in the steel town of Reading, Pennsylvania, and all best friends Tracey and Cynthia need are their steady factory jobs, their favorite bar, and each other. But as years pass and a recession hits, hard times at the factory threaten their livelihoods and test the limits of their friendship. Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize, playwright Lynn Nottage's second Pulitzer, and nominated for the 2017 Tony Award® for Best Play, Sweat takes an unflinching look at life in the industrial working class that has been hailed as “the first theatrical landmark of the Trump era.”


TWELFTH NIGHT by William Shakespeare, directed by Kevin Moriarty                           
"If music be the food of love, play on!"

April 9, 11, 17, 18, 25     Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Potter Rose Performance Hall 
Viola has just lost everything in a shipwreck, including her twin brother. She’s found herself on the shores of Illyria, a place she’s never been. And in order to get work, she’s had to disguise herself as man. When hired as a servant to Duke Orsino, she encounters yet one more problem: she’s totally in love with him. Unable to express her feelings without blowing her cover, Viola sets out to fulfill the Duke’s orders - which include wooing another woman. One of Shakespeare’s finest comedies, Twelfth Night will whisk audiences away to a world of scheming outlaws and daring rescues, unbelievable love triangles, and one truly unforgettable adventure. 


REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES by Josefina López, directed by Christie Vela                    
Women are powerful, especially when working together.

May 8     Kalita Humphreys Theater
Ana just graduated from high school, and though she dreams of going to college and becoming a writer, for now she is stuck working in her sister’s garment factory in East L.A. The hours are long and the pay is low, but Ana grows to appreciate the strength, passion, and dedication of the women she works beside. While the ladies of Real Women Have Curves struggle with things as personal as body image and as consequential as the threat of deportation, they still find joy, humor and beauty in their relationships with one another, and within themselves.
