2014-15 SEASON DETAILS:

THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW

Book, Music and Lyrics by RICHARD O'BRIEN
Directed and Choreographed by JOEL FERRELL
Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre

Sept. 11 - Oct. 19

Let's do the Time Warp again! Four decades after its Broadway premiere, The Rocky Horror Show is back with delicious, gender- bending abandon! With Joel Ferrell at the helm (remember Cabaret, anyone?) this all-new production promises a wickedly wayward evening that demands you check your old-fashioned assumptions about how we can shape ourselves at the door. Complete with sweet alien transvestites, killer rock music and outrageous humor, don't miss this night at the Annual Transylvanian Convention, where boys will be girls, and girls will be boys... we dare you to figure out which is which.

DRIVING MISS DAISY

By ALFRED UHRY
Directed by JOEL FERRELL
Kalita Humphreys Theater

Oct. 16 - Nov. 16

Told through vignettes detailing the shift in Southern racial attitudes between 1948 and 1973, Driving Miss Daisy chronicles the decades-long relationship between a stubborn, Southern matriarch and her proud, African-American chauffeur who journey from suspicion and mistrust to respect and affection in this Pulitzer Prize®-winning play. DTC welcomes back 2014 Academy Award®- nominee June Squibb (last seen in Dividing the Estate) as the indomitable Miss Daisy in this iconic tale of the transformative power of friendship that will warm your heart.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL (HOLIDAY EXTRA) By CHARLES DICKENS

Adapted by KEVIN MORIARTY
Directed by LEE TRULL
Choreographed by JEREMY DUMONT
Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre

Nov. 25 - Dec. 27

'Tis the season to be jolly, when last season's sold-out, family-favorite, holiday production of A Christmas Carol returns to the Wyly Theatre. In this delightfully re-imagined take on Dickens' enduring classic, featuring Chamblee Ferguson as Ebenezer Scrooge, the audience is surrounded by the actors, with magical ghosts flying above, scary ghosts bursting out of the floor, and snow falling on everyone. Full of traditional Christmas hymns and songs in fresh, toe-tapping musical arrangements, joyful bursts of choreography, and eye-popping special effects, A Christmas Carol is Dallas' newest "must-see" holiday tradition.

THE BOOK CLUB PLAY

By KAREN ZACARI?AS
Directed by MEREDITH MCDONOUGH
Kalita Humphreys Theater

Jan. 1 - Feb. 1

Loads of laughter and literature collide in this smart comedy about books and the people who love them. Ana lives in a letter-perfect world with an adoring husband, the perfect job, and her greatest passion: book club. But when her book club becomes the subject of a film documentary their discussions about life and literature take a hilarious turn. Add a club-crashing newcomer along with some provocative book titles and the club's long-intertwined group dynamics begin to unravel as the friends start to read between the lines.

STAGGER LEE

Book and Lyrics by WILL POWER
Music by WILL POWER and JUSTIN ELLINGTON
Directed by PATRICIA MCGREGOR
Music Supervision by DARYL WATERS
Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre

Jan. 21 - Feb. 15

A highlight this season is the world premiere of Stagger Lee, a musical that takes its title from the century-old folk song that became a Number One R&B hit for Lloyd Price in 1959. The story spans the 20th Century, tracing mythical characters in their quest to achieve the American Dream. The deep-seated themes of racism and the raw power of human will are sure to give you chills. And the music-from Joplin-inspired tunes to R&B and hip-hop-will definitely get your feet moving.

Stagger Lee was partially developed in workshops in collaboration with The Meadows School of the Arts, Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas as a part of Will Power's Meadows Prize residency.

THE SCHOOL FOR WIVES

By MOLIERE
Directed by KEVIN MORIARTY
Kalita Humphreys Theater

Feb. 20 - March 29

DTC launches a new multi-year Classical Theater initiative with this sublime comedy, in a high-energy production directed by Kevin Moriarty. Combining Molie?re's razor-sharp observations about love, marriage and desire with hilarious physical comedy and joyful contemporary music, The School For Wives tells the story of Arnolphe, who believes he has shrewdly concocted the perfect plan to woo a much younger woman to be his wife. (SPOILER ALERT: Arnolphe isn't all that shrewd). As his plan goes horribly wrong and the complications add up, this fast-paced French farce will keep you on the edge of your seat, wondering what you may have missed while you were rolling in the aisle laughing.

MEDEA (LIMITED ENGAGEMENT)

By EURIPIDES
Directed by KEVIN MORIARTY
Kalita Humphreys Theater - Down Center Stage

Feb. 19 - March 29

The second production in DTC's Classical Theater initiative, Medea is a 2500-year-old classic that still resonates today with its modern- day complexities of power, marriage, families and politics. Produced in Down Center Stage, the intimate basement theater space carved out of the Kalita Humphreys Theater, Medea will plunge the audience into the midst of an intense domestic dispute that quickly accelerates to its horrifying climax of violence, revenge and mutual destruction. With emotionally honest acting and a starkly beautiful, poetic text, Medea will be an unforgettable theatrical experience.

COLOSSAL

By ANDREW HINDERAKER
Directed by KEVIN MORIARTY
Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre

April 2 - May 3

Winner of the Kennedy Center's Jean Kennedy Smith Playwriting Award, Colossal is an epic theatrical event. With the flexible Wyly Theatre transformed into a football field, director Kevin Moriarty will create an intensely physical production of this spectacular and deeply moving new play. Featuring full contact choreography and a drumline, the play centers on a University of Texas football player, struggling to move forward in the wake of a catastrophic spinal injury. A play about love, ability, and extraordinary feats of strength, Colossal is both a celebration and critical examination of our nation's most popular form of theater.

Colossal is being produced as a rolling world premiere by Olney Theatre Center (Maryland), Mixed Blood Theatre (Minneapolis), Dallas Theater Center (Texas) and Southern Rep (Louisiana) as part of the National New Play Network's Continued Life Program.
