Instead of their annual summer pageant production, DTC, SMU Meadows School of the Arts and Ignite/Arts Dallas join with their Public Works Dallas community partners, Aspire, Bachman Lake Together, City of Dallas Beckley Saner and Janie C Turner Recreation Centers, Jubilee Park & Community Center, to produce a filmed version of an original theatrical production, created and performed by the sixty community participants from throughout Dallas. The community actors will rehearse virtually for most of the summer, then come together at the end of July for outdoor filming sessions at the community partner sites.
“Because of the pandemic we are unable to produce our annual Public Works Dallas pageant production this summer, which typically features 200 community members on stage at the Wyly Theatre,” said Kevin Moriarty, Enloe/Rose Artistic Director, DTC. “However, we are thrilled to bring members of our community together this summer to create and perform an original theatrical piece. which we will film outdoors at our community partner sites. Like all of our Public Works Dallas programming, the film of A Little Less Lonely will celebrate our fundamental belief that theater belongs to everyone.”
