By CHARLES DICKENS    Adapted by KEVIN MORIARTY     Directed by LEE TRULL
Nov 22–Dec 28, 2017   Wyly Theatre

‘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. Contains moments that may be scary for very small children. Recommended for people Elementary school age and up.

By NICK DEAR    Adapted from the novel by MARY SHELLEY     Directed by JOEL FERRELL
Feb 2–March 4, 2018   Kalita Humphreys Theater

When Dr. Frankenstein’s experiment goes horribly awry, he resolves to destroy the terrifying creature he has unleashed upon the world. But can he kill his own creation without becoming a monster himself? Mary Shelley’s 200-year-old horror story, widely regarded as the original science fiction novel, continues to challenge the modern imagination. And after its sell-out run at London's National Theatre, Nick Dear’s electrifying new adaptation, full of shocking twists and turns, is sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats as it brings Frankenstein (and his monster) to life. Contains mature themes and moments that may be scary for very small children. Recommended for people Middle School age and up.

By ROBERT SCHENKKAN    Directed by KEVIN MORIARTY
March 9–April 1, 2018   Wyly Theatre

Following the success of DTC’s 2016 production of All the WayThe Great Society continues the story of Lyndon B. Johnson’s turbulent presidency in the second part of Robert Schenkkan’s epic theatrical event. While the president fights a “war on poverty” at home, his war in Viet Nam begins to spiral out of control. Besieged by political enemies, Johnson desperately fights to pass civil rights legislation and some of the most important social programs in American history, even as the country turns against him and descends into chaos. Filled with a cast of legendary characters—from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Bobby Kennedy and Richard Nixon—The Great Society is an exhilarating examination of power, morality and change. Contains profane language, mature themes, racial slurs, violent projections, and violent language. Recommended for people High School and up.

By AARON LOEB    Directed by KEVIN MORIARTY
April 20-May 13, 2018   Kalita Humphreys Theater

On the eve of the state’s secession in 1861, Governor Sam Houston is torn between loyalty to Texas and loyalty to the United States. As he weighs the terrible choice he must make, certain of the devastating cost of either path, Houston tells Jeff Hamilton (his office clerk and slave) of a time when he, and the Union itself, stood trial. This searing, world-premiere drama presents the true story of some of America’s most famous leaders—Andrew Jackson, Francis Scott Key, and John Quincy Adams, among others—and one man’s struggle with what it means to be brave in the land of the free. Contains profane language and racial slurs. Recommended for people Middle School age and up.
