Each year, Dallas Theater Center presents an extraordinary gala to raise funds for its artistic and educational programming. Centerstage is no typical fundraiser. It features spectacular live entertainment, a fun and funky dress code, and a reputation as Big D’s most lively (and least stuffy!) fundraising event.
An exclusive benefit of Benefactor membership, Opening Night Dinners offer an inside look at a production immediately preceding the opening night performance. Enjoy cocktails and a three-course meal with fellow supporters of DTC and hear insider information about the production from artistic staff. After the show, attendees are invited to join the cast and crew for the opening night party!
Sponsored by UMB Bank, the annual Circle Dinner is a thank you for the generous support of Dallas Theater Center’s Gold, Platinum and Directors’ Circle Benefactors. The unique environs of the Wyly Theatre provide the backdrop for cocktails, dinner, and a memorable private performance by local and national theater artists.
Members of Friends@DTC are invited to participate in special happy-hour events for each production, which include a discussion with members of DTC’s artistic staff, behind-the-scenes looks at how productions are mounted, and a chance to watch part of a rehearsal in progress.
