Dallas Children’s Theater (DCT) postpones Dracula, which was scheduled to run from October 9 through November 1, 2009, to continue being fiscally responsible in the current economy while fulfilling its artistic mission for Dallas families.
Like many individuals and businesses, DCT has been affected by the current economic situation and must redirect limited resources to keep DCT strong financially. DCT Executive Artistic Director, Robyn Flatt, states, “We will continue our commitment to young adults by presenting Most Valuable Player (the Jackie Robinson story) and the world premiere of hard to spel dad. We hope to bring Dracula back as soon as possible.” This cost saving measure will enable DCT to continue providing free and discounted tickets to disadvantaged youth and to supplement learning for thousands of children through theater classes and arts-in-education programs.
DCT’s Junior Board Halloween Fundraiser scheduled for October 31, 2009 will move forward. Alternative arrangements will be made for entertainment.
DCT asks the public to increase its financial support of DCT by inviting friends and family to purchase theater tickets, making a tax-deductible gift on-line at www.dct.org or purchasing a commemorative brick for the Walk of Fame at the Rosewood Center for Family Arts.
DCT thanks its subscribers and donors for supporting another season of family entertainment and investing in professional quality theater for North Texas children.
