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.

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.

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.

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.

Our partnership with AT&T PAC allows Dallas Theater Center to focus on providing the best SummerStage experience possible for you and your student(s).

While on the AT&T PAC site, you may notice some "Performance" language. That's because SummerStage is the hottest "ticket" in town. Wink wink.

SUBSCRIBE, then pick the date of your first class (or PERFORMANCE), choose your child's SEAT, then provide payment information to complete your purchase!

As you click through and add classes to your cart, don't forget to fill out your student's Information Sheet after checking out!
