Dallas Theater Center will produce nine shows next season (up from seven this season), five of them back at DTC's original home, Kalita Humphreys Theater on Turtle Creek. That may be good news to theatergoers who prefer the free parking at Kalita and the more bottom-friendly seats at the 55-year-old Frank Lloyd Wright building, over the paid parking and hard green chairs inside the not-yet-5-year-old Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre in the Arts District. But it could complicate the seasons of two other theater companies: Uptown Players, who've been producing their seasons at Kalita since 2009, and Second Thought Theatre, the smaller troupe using the black box space in Heldt Hall next to Kalita.
Kalita Humphreys Theater
This season DTC is producing all seven of its shows at the 600-seat Wyly. That included a new production of A Christmas Carol, one of the company's two box office hits this year (along with Oedipus el Rey). Yet to come are Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure, opening April 25, and Les Miserables, opening June 27. DTC hasn't produced a show at Kalita, which has about 200 fewer seats, since last April's musical Fly by Night.More »
