STEEL MAGNOLIAS by Robert Harling  
Southern society won’t wilt these flowers.

Sept. 28-Oct. 21     Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Potter Rose Performance Hall
Every Southern woman knows there are few institutions on earth more important than the town beauty parlor. At Truvy Jones’ salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, neighborhood women gather to swap stories, share gossip, and of course, style their hair. But when tragedy strikes, the community comes together in a bond more powerful than ten coats of hairspray. Steel Magnolias is a hilarious, heartwarming portrait of the strength and beauty of female friendship. 


 

SWEAT by Lynn Nottage 
From assembly line to picket line, it’s more than just a job. 

Feb. 8-Mar. 3     Kalita Humphreys Theater
It’s the year 2000 in the steel town of Reading, Pennsylvania, and all best friends Tracey and Cynthia need are their steady factory jobs, their favorite bar, and each other. But as years pass and a recession hits, hard times at the factory threaten their livelihoods and test the limits of their friendship. Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize, playwright Lynn Nottage's second Pulitzer, and nominated for the 2017 Tony Award® for Best Play, Sweat takes an unflinching look at life in the industrial working class that has been hailed as “the first theatrical landmark of the Trump era.”


 

 

TWELFTH NIGHT by William Shakespeare                           
A star-crossed, cross-dressing melodic tryst!

Mar. 29-Apr. 28     Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Potter Rose Performance Hall 
Viola has just lost everything in a shipwreck, including her twin brother. She’s found herself on the shores of Illyria, a place she’s never been. And in order to get work, she’s had to disguise herself as man. When hired as a servant to Duke Orsino, she encounters yet one more problem: she’s totally in love with him. Unable to express her feelings without blowing her cover, Viola sets out to fulfill the Duke’s orders - which include wooing another woman. One of Shakespeare’s finest comedies, Twelfth Night will whisk audiences away to a world of scheming outlaws and daring rescues, unbelievable love triangles, and one truly unforgettable adventure. 


 

REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES by Josefina López                          
Look at how beautiful we are!

June 28-July 21     Kalita Humphreys Theater
Ana just graduated from high school, and though she dreams of going to college and becoming a writer, for now she is stuck working in her sister’s garment factory in East L.A. The hours are long and the pay is low, but Ana grows to appreciate the strength, passion, and dedication of the women she works beside. While the ladies of Real Women Have Curves struggle with things as personal as body image and as consequential as the threat of deportation, they still find joy, humor and beauty in their relationships with one another, and within themselves.


 

HOLIDAY ADD-ON

A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens, adapted by Kevin Moriarty
Dallas’ family-favorite holiday tradition.   

Nov. 21-Dec. 30    Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Potter Rose Performance Hall
Tis the season to be jolly when Dallas’s 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, Dallas Theater Center’s A Christmas Carol boldly reimagines Dickens’ classic tale of joy, redemption, and the spirit of Christmas.
