Dallas Theater Center
One of the country’s leading regional theaters, Dallas Theater Center (DTC) performs to an audience of more than 90,000, including 11,000 students through its Student Matinee Series and the award-winning Project Discovery. Founded in 1959, DTC is now a resident company of the AT&T Performing Arts Center and presents its mainstage season at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre. DTC also presents at its original home, the Kalita Humphreys Theater, the only freestanding theater designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright. Current artistic director Kevin Moriarty joined DTC in 2007. He has led the formation of the Brierley Resident Acting Company and an expansion of DTC’s programming to include commissions and productions of new work, large-scale musicals, co-productions with notable regional theaters, and collaborations within the Dallas community. DTC’s mission is to engage, entertain, and inspire our diverse community by creating experiences that stimulate new ways of thinking and living. We will do this by consistently producing plays, educational programs, and other initiatives that are of the highest quality and reach the broadest possible constituency.
Dallas Theater Center will present student matinees and evening performances of Romeo and Juliet directed by Artistic Director Joel Ferrell. The company will provide related educational activities, including workshops, post-performances discussions, and a study guide. They anticipate reaching 80 schools from Texas.
