Seating for our PWYC performances is General Admission. We advise that you arrive no later than half an hour prior to curtain to get the best seat possible.

Standby tickets at the Box Office the night of each PWYC performance. This allows patrons the opportunity to purchase tickets who may have missed the chance to purchase online. While we can never guarantee that standby tickets will result in a seat, we are confident this option will allow more of our community the opportunity to attend our PWYC performance. Any ticket that does not result in a seat will gladly be refunded.

See you at the theater!

 


 

WORLD PREMIERE

penny candy by Jonathan Norton, directed by Derrick Sanders                            
Life in Dallas' Pleasant Grove was both sweet and sour.   

June 5-July 14     Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Studio Theatre
Growing up in a candy house sounds like every kid’s dream. But for 12-year-old Jon-Jon, helping his father run Paw Paw’s Candy Tree out of their run-down one-bedroom apartment isn’t quite a dream come true. As their neighborhood sees a surge of violence fueled by epidemic drug use and increasing racial tensions, the business begins to fail and danger looms immediately outside Jon-Jon’s front door. Oh, and then there’s the looming threat of Vacation Bible School. Worst summer ever! A world premiere from Dallas playwright Jonathan Norton, and set in Dallas’ own Pleasant Grove, penny candy follows one family as they seek to balance their responsibilities to their community and to one another. 

PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN is Friday, July 5  Tickets go on sale Friday, June 28
