A world premiere by Jonathan Norton
Directed by Kevin Moriarty

Wyly Theatre, Potter Rose Performance Hall
September 9 – October 17, 2021 (in rep with Tiny Beautiful Things)

This world premiere comedy, from playwright-in-residence Jonathan Norton (penny candy), was written specifically to welcome audiences back to the theater, and features Brierley Resident Acting company members originating roles created specifically for them. In Cake Ladies, the Scott County Community Playhouse is the pride of Cedar Oak, Texas, a small town recovering from a drug-fueled HIV outbreak.  With the launch of their first ever “AIDSFest!” it seems the town is finally turning a corner for the better.  When the COVID-19 pandemic shuts down the playhouse production of Angels in America, best friends LeAnne (Sally Nystuen Vahle) and Tweedy-Bird (Liz Mikel)–affectionately known as “the cake ladies”–leap into action to make Angels soar again in their hometown. However, to do so they must confront Cedar Oaks dark past and their own carefully buried secrets. Cake Ladies is a deeply heart-warming exploration of family, friendship and the joys of community theater!

Dallas’ family-favorite holiday tradition.

Tis the season to be jolly when Dallas’ favorite holiday tradition returns to the Wyly Theatre! Three spirits have come to visit the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, and to take him on a fantastic journey through Christmases past, present, and future that annually delights audiences across North Texas. But will it be enough to save Scrooge’s soul? Brimming with joyful songs, magical spirits, and holiday cheer, the Tony Award winning Dallas Theater Center’s A Christmas Carol boldly reimagines Dickens’ classic tale of joy, redemption, and the spirit of Christmas.
