Life in Pleasant Grove was both sweet and sour. 

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! 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. Recommended for ages 15 (or High School) and older. Penny Candy was developed with the support of PlayPenn, Paul Meshejian, Artistic Director.

Twelfth Night

Written by William Shakespeare

"If music be the food of love, play on!"

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.

From assembly line to picket line, it’s more than just a job. 

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.”

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, Dallas Theater Center’s A Christmas Carol boldly reimagines Dickens’ classic tale of joy, redemption, and the spirit of Christmas.
