On Wednesday, March 23, Dallas Summer Musicals announced a name change to “Broadway Dallas” and its 22/23 Germania Broadway Series Season, at the first in an exciting new “Spotlight Dinner Series” of fundraising evenings generously sponsored by PNC Bank.
“We changed our name from Dallas Summer Musicals to Broadway Dallas to accurately capture who we are and what we do. It encompasses not only the magnificent work that we put on our stage, but also our other exciting events and community engagement and education programs through which we share ‘the spirit of Broadway’ with as many members of our community as possible,” said Ken Novice, President and CEO of Broadway Dallas.
The next Spotlight Dinner Series will be held on April 27 at a private estate centered around Broadway Dallas’ upcoming performance of Mean Girls. A revival of the classic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Oklahoma! will be the third themed dinner in the series, held on the 23d floor of Museum Tower on May 19. These intimate gatherings of 50 are already sold out.
Tickets for Broadway Dallas’ Fall 2022 Spotlight Dinner Series, which are $450 a seat, will go on sale in late Spring 2022 and will be themed around the shows Ain’t Too Proud, My Fair Lady and SIX. Proceeds will benefit artistic and educational excellence at Broadway Dallas including programs in classrooms and throughout the community that serve more than 40,000 students and families each year. Tickets on sale now at BroadwayDallas.org. Please contact Deborah Ann Trimble, Broadway Dallas Vice President of Development at 214-413-3957 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
