DART to Theater & Dance


Through Oct. 22 The Addams Family comes to the Plaza Theatre in Garland. The musical comedy is based on the beloved family with an affinity for all things macabre - and it's right in time for Halloween! The Plaza Theatre is at 521 W. State Street in Garland. Information: garlandartsboxoffice.com.

Through Oct. 22 Tune in, drop out, let the sunshine in and say hello to the Age of Aquarius when the classic musical Hair comes to town. There will be plenty of catchy tunes, some of which you probably haven't heard in a while. Peace out at the Wyly Theatre, 2400 Flora St. Information: attpac.org.

Through Oct. 22 Theatre Three presents Adding Machine. Darkly comic and heartbreakingly beautiful, Adding Machine, a musical adaptation of Elmer Rice's incendiary 1923 play, tells the story of Mr. Zero, who after 25 years of service to his company is replaced by a mechanical adding machine. In a vengeful rage, he murders his boss. An eclectic score gives passionate and memorable voice to this stylish and stylized show, which follows Zero's journey to the afterlife in the Elysian Fields where he is met with one last chance for romance and redemption. Theatre Three is located at 2800 Routh St. in the Quadrangle. Information: theatre3dallas.com.

Through Oct. 29 The Firehouse Theatre presents Little Shop Of Horrors, a deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical. Seymour Krelborn, a meek floral assistant, stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his coworker crush. This loud mouth, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it...BLOOD. Winner of Best Musical by Drama Critics Circle Award, Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, and Evening Standard Award. The Firehouse Theatre is located at 2535 Valley View Lane in Farmers Branch. Information: www.thefirehousetheatre.com.

Through Nov. 5 Pride and Prejudice is a classic comedy about the entanglements of love, family, marriage and money. The playwright Kate Hamill has successfully adapted Jane Austen material before, and she brings an imaginative, irreverent take to the English author's most famous novel. It's being staged at the WaterTower Theatre, 15650 Addison Road. Information: watertowertheatre.org.

Pocket Sandwich Theatre, as its name implies, serves up theatre of a different sort with deadly musical comedy and pirates on the loose:
Through Nov. 11 The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by Joe Dickinson. The ultimate two-faced villain returns so that you can explore the weighty philosophical questions about good and evil, love and hate, buttered and unbuttered popcorn. Our last popcorn-tosser of the year and just in time for the Halloween season.
It's comedy, farce and loony melodrama at the theater, 5400 E. Mockingbird Lane. Information: pocketsandwich.com.

Oct. 19-Nov. 11 Dracula The Musical plays at the Granville Arts Center in a production by Garland Civic Theater. Set in Europe at the end of the Victorian Age, the story follows the famed vampire as he lusts for new blood. Jonathan Harker and Mina Murray fall victim to Dracula's unnatural charm and, along with Doctor Van Helsing, must fight Dracula's supernatural powers. The Granville Arts Center is located at 300 N. Fifth St. in Garland. Information: garlandcivictheatre.org.

Oct. 19-22 Look out Broadway (and the Eisemann Center), Forbidden Broadway is back! New season, new victims, new laughs! Just when Broadway thought it was safe from the poison pen of funny-man Gerard Alessandrini, Forbidden Broadway 35th Anniversary Tour returns, sharper and more hilarious than ever! This year's targets include Pippin, Kinky Boots, Les Miz, Matilda, joining favorites from past years including Wicked and The Book of Mormon. Performances are at the Eisemann Center, 2451 Performance Drive. Information: www.eisemanncenter.com.

Oct. 20-Nov. 5 The Full Monty follows six down-on-their luck steelworkers who are desperately seeking employment and a paycheck to support their families - until they come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness, feelings of worthlessness and anxieties, they come to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their demons and overcome them. Performances are at Kalita Humphreys Theater, 3636 Turtle Creek Blvd. Information: uptownplayers.org.

Nov. 3-18 MainStage Irving-Las Colinas presents Sister Act. When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she's thrown into protective custody in the one place she'd never be spotted - a convent! Her loud, abrasive nature doesn't mesh well with the rigid, uptight nuns, but that won't stop her from breathing new life into the church and, in the process, blowing her cover. This divine musical comedy is inspired by the smash hit 1992 film starring Whoopi Goldberg. Performances are at the Dupree Theater in the Irving Arts Center, 3333 N. MacArthur Boulevard. Information: www.irvingtheatre.org.

Nov. 17-19 Lyric Stage presents the regional premiere of The Hunchback of Notre Dame at the Majestic Theatre. From the Oscar®-winning team of Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz comes a lushly scored retelling of Victor Hugo's epic story of love, acceptance, and what it means to be a hero. Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the beloved Disney animated feature, The Hunchback of Notre Dame features the film's Oscar®-nominated score as well as new songs by Menken and Schwartz. The Majestic Theatre is located at 1925 Elm St. Information: www.dallasculture.org.
Nov. 25-Dec. 30 The Three Musketeers by Jackie Mellor-Guin is presented by Theatre Britain at the Cox Building Playhouse, 1517 H Ave. in Plano. A traditional British panto is a fairy tale told in the style of melodrama. The audience is encouraged to cheer for the good guys, boo and hiss the bad guys and join in with the characters on stage. The show works on two levels, with a story children can follow and jokes adults can appreciate. Information: theatre-britain.com.

Dec. 6-Jan. 7 The Dallas Theater Center presents Fade. When Lucia, a young Mexican born novelist, begins her dream career as a television writer in L.A., she finds herself much more comfortable with the only other Latino around, one of the janitors, than with anyone in the writers' room. This new comic-drama by Tanya Saracho, a writer for HBO's Girls and ABC's How to Get Away with Murder, poses tricky questions about identity and community, as Lucia struggles to bridge the distance between where she came from and where she's going. Contains profane language, mature themes, and sexual humor. Recommended for people High School age and up. Performances are at the Studio Theatre, 2400 Flora St. Information: www.dallastheatercenter.org.

Every Thursday Dallas Comedy House is a beloved local institution, and it offers something unique every Thursday - the weekly Improv Comedy Night, in which some of the club's best comedians create a fully improvised scene based on audience suggestions. The Dallas Comedy House is at 3025 Main St. in Deep Ellum. Information: dallascomedyhouse.com.
