ABOUT AT&T PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

The AT&T Performing Arts Center is a nonprofit foundation that operates and programs a 10-acre campus comprised of three premier performance venues and a park in downtown Dallas. Opening in October 2009, the Center helped complete the 30-year vision of the Dallas Arts District. Audiences enjoy the best and most recent from Broadway and off-Broadway; the finest dance companies from across the globe co-presented with TITAS Presents; top concerts and performers through Center Presents; cutting-edge speakers from the #hearhere series; and a five-year initiative to present The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. The Center has also become known as a platform for world premieres, including new creations from Twyla Tharp, Kyle Abraham, St. Vincent and Pharrell Williams, as well as acclaimed new works from its five resident companies. They are among the city’s leading arts institutions: Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, The Dallas Opera, Dallas Theater Center and Texas Ballet Theater. The Center’s iconic venues include the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Annette Strauss Square and Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park. The Center offers free programming for audiences from every part of the community and produces the expansive, biannual light-based art event Aurora across the Arts District. Thousands of students explore and more deeply experience the arts through the Center’s education program, Open Stages. The Community Partners program works with local service agencies to provide free tickets to underserved individuals and families. These programs are made possible by the ongoing support of donors and members. The Center’s mission is to provide a public gathering place that strengthens community and fosters creativity through the presentation of performing arts. www.attpac.org
