About Dallas Theater Center: CENTERSTAGE 40:
On Saturday, May 4, 2024 Dallas Theater Center’s annual fundraising event, CENTERSTAGE 40: A BRAND NEW DAY, will take place at Fashion Industry Gallery (F.I.G.) in the Dallas Arts District. The highly anticipated fête will mark the 40th year for the annual Centerstage gala, as well as the 65th anniversary for the Dallas Theater Center organization.

The cabaret-jazz-inspired evening of multimedia and fine dining will include a cocktail reception highlighting many of the Public Works education and community engagement programs and featuring the Diane and Hal Brierley Resident Acting Company, followed by a seated dinner and program, vibrant live auction and paddle raise, and ending with a musical performance by a celebrated Broadway star.

The evening will also celebrate the 65 years of producing incredible work on and off stage and the community that makes it possible. And it is with great pride that on the night, the 2024 Linda and Bill Custard Award will be given to The Donna Wilhelm Family Philanthropy Fund recognizing the steadfast, thoughtful and tailored support to the DTC.
