Playwrights Welcome is a new program developed for Dramatists Guild of America Members by Samuel French along with Dramatists Play Service, Dramatic Publishing, Music Theatre International, Playscripts and Rodgers and Hammerstein. The goal is simple: to provide free access to theater for playwrights, composers and lyricists. We are invested in the success and artistic health of our industry’s writers, and by extension the vibrancy of the American theater. We’re also aware that attending theater is an integral part to how writers learn their craft and grow as artists.

Dallas Theater Center is proud to take part in Playwrights Welcome, which offers available tickets to professional playwrights on the day of a performance, free of charge. To receive a ticket through Playwrights Welcome at DTC, please contact the box office in person or by phone @ (214) 880-0202 on the day of the performance you’d like to attend. Please note that a Dramatists Guild membership card is required to pick up tickets, and there is a limit of two free tickets per member. Available while supplies last.
Other restrictions may apply.
