Back by “popular” demand, Dallas Summer Musicals is thrilled to present its 5th and longest engagement of the cultural phenomenon, WICKED at the Music Hall at Fair Park April 20 – May 22, 2016.

The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for the most complete – and completely satisfying – musical in a long time.

Dallas Summer Musicals Community Performance is Sold Out!

March 2nd, 2016

communityperformancelogo

First community performance will reach over 3,400 families and children from 43 nonprofit organizations and DISD schools

 

Dallas, TX – Dallas Summer Musicals, Inc. (DSM) announces its new investment in creating public access to the performing arts, the DSM Community Performance, has sold out! Engaging families and children from 38 nonprofit organizations and 5 DISD Elementary Schools from the Madison and Lincoln feeder patterns, this special show will provide over 3,400 seats to community organizations free of charge. This very special event is made possible with financial support from sponsors and the enthusiasm and interest of schools, neighborhoods, and other nonprofits as partners, volunteers, and advocates which have come on board to make this truly an event dedicated to community outreach, filling the Music Hall at Fair Park.

“This event demonstrates Dallas Summer Musicals’ ongoing commitment to the Dallas community and our leadership role as a cornerstone nonprofit performing arts organization for the City of Dallas and its citizens in Fair Park,” said Michael A. Jenkins, President and Managing Director, DSM. “We are thrilled at the immediate response from community partners and grateful for the support from sponsors earmarked for this special event, including the Moody Foundation, the Hillcrest Foundation and Frost Bank, along with DSM season sponsors Texas Instruments, WFAA, American Airlines and The Dallas Morning News. Their involvement as corporate and community advocates has been crucial in making this Community Performance a reality.”

Slated for Friday, March 11, 2016 the DSM Community Performance will take place during DSM’s 76th season presentation of Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID, a proven family favorite, creating memorable experiences for children and parents to see a major touring Broadway production – many for the first time. Based on the animated film, this special show features a revamped script, new songs, and an entirely fresh interpretation of the film. Tickets for all other performances are for sale and open to the public during the show’s run through Sunday, March 27th. Details are below.

“Each year, DSM seeks opportunities to enhance its organizational mission of presenting extraordinary Broadway shows by giving back to organizations, families, and students in the Dallas and greater North Texas community through community ticket donations, initiatives like Seats for Kids and the newly-developed Seats for Vets, and through scholarship funds for both the DSM Academy of the Performing Arts and the High School Musical Theatre Awards,” Jenkins continued. “The DSM Community Performance represents our latest community investment concept, designed to demonstrate that what’s good for the Dallas community is good for Dallas Summer Musicals.”

DSM is pleased to welcome students and families from five Dallas ISD elementary schools from the Madison and Lincoln feeder patterns. “Participating in and attending quality arts events enrich the lives of our students in many ways,” said Dr. Danna Rothlisberger, Executive Director-Visual and Performing Arts. “Studies show that students who engage in arts activities develop skills that help promote academic and life success.   For certain, our young people who attend live performances gain a rich experience that provides much for classroom and family conversations long after the event.  Therefore, we are so grateful that the Dallas ISD elementary students in the Fair Park neighborhood have this opportunity to benefit from the district’s new partnership with the Dallas Summer Musicals.”

Ted Munselle, Chairman of the Board at DSM, agreed, saying, “This is a win-win-win for DSM, for Dallas, and for Fair Park and an intentional effort to expand on our community outreach. During the last presentation of Disney’s THE LION KING, for example, DSM organized a “Buy a Seat, Give a Seat” promotion for one of the performances, which enabled DSM subscribers, patrons and community partner organizations to purchase over 1,700 seats for underserved and low-income families to attend the performance.  This community investment was a great success and that success is one inspiration for the DSM Community Performance.”

Sponsors of the DSM Community Performance as of February 25 include: The Moody Foundation ($100,000), The Hillcrest Foundation ($50,000) and Frost Bank ($5,000), with additional annual education and community outreach program support from The Hirsch Family Foundation ($25,000), The Hoglund Foundation ($25,000), the Scovell Fund of The Dallas Foundation ($25,000). In-Kind partners include: Big Thought, Creativity Sponsor; Chick-Fil-A, food sponsor; DART, transportation sponsor; and Mother Ruckers, cookie sponsor. DSM is also grateful to season sponsors Texas Instruments, American Airlines, WFAA, and the Dallas Morning News for ongoing support in its 76th year.

Dallas Summer Musicals’ highly anticipated 2015-2016 Season presented by Texas Instruments continues with DSM’s production of Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID, March 12-27, 2016; WICKED, April 20 – May 22, 2016; RAGTIME, May 24 – June 5, 2016; BULLETS OVER BROADWAY, June 14-26, 2016; and closing the season will be 42ND STREET, June 28 – July 10, 2016. Dallas Summer Musicals Management Group, Inc. will also present the Broadway hit musical MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, February 27 & 28, 2016 for a limited engagement.

Munselle’s love for musical theatre started early and was solidified in 1978, when he married his wife, Gay, a Music Educator and Choir Director. Gay and Ted were DSM season ticket holders early in their marriage and he jumped at the chance to serve on DSM’s Board of Directors when the opportunity arose in 2008. Since joining DSM’s Board, Ted served as Vice President of Investments and Vice President of Development before being named Chair-Elect in 2015. In addition, he has served DSM as a member of the Audit and Finance Committees.

Ted serves on the Board of Directors as Chair of the Audit Committees of four publicly traded corporations, and is actively involved as an Elder at Highland Park Presbyterian Church.

Gay and Ted have a son, Chris, who lives in Plano with his wife Kristine, and their four children (Josiah, Layla, Judah and Ivy), and a daughter, Elyse, who lives in Austin.

DSM President and Managing Director Michael A. Jenkins said, “Ted Munselle brings DSM an outstanding track record of executive and business leadership as he takes the helm as Chairman of the Board of Dallas Summer Musicals for 2016. Combining an impressive record of 39 years of achievement in his profession with volunteer leadership in support of the arts, Ted has been a big supporter of DSM for many years. As a past member of the board, he has rapidly and actively engaged in advancing the transformation of DSM and we feel very lucky to welcome him as the new Chair.”

New DSM Board Chairman Munselle said, “I am honored and excited to be able to serve as DSM’s Chair during its 76th season. I have loved the organization for many years and I look forward to working with our incredible team of officers as we lead DSM forward into the future, not only presenting the Best of Broadway to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but also providing educational opportunities to students with such programs as High School Musical Theatre Awards and Seats for Kids, to name a few. As a not-for-profit organization, we will continue to work together with our patrons, sponsors and volunteers, not to mention the City of Dallas and the community as a whole, to create a fun and welcoming experience each time we get together.”

Brand New Production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC Makes North Texas Debut!

October 8th, 2015

The Sound of Music

MAKES NORTH TEXAS DEBUT

NOVEMBER 3-22, 2015

AT THE MUSIC HALL AT FAIR PARK

& AUGUST 17-21, 2016

AT BASS PERFORMANCE HALL.

“Sparkling, fresh and lively.” – Los Angeles Times

“An unabashed paean to the healing power of art.” – Hollywood Reporter

“Go see The Sound of Music, as it will be unlike any other you have encountered.” – LA Daily News

Dallas, TX (October 8, 2015) – A brand new production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC, directed by three-time Tony Award® winner Jack O’Brien, will make its North Texas debut at the Music Hall at Fair Park November 3-22, 2015, presented by Dallas Summer Musicals. This lavish production will roll back into Fort Worth, where it will play at Bass Performance Hall August 17-21, 2016, presented by Performing Arts Fort Worth.

BEN DAVIS (Broadway’s Violet, A Little Night Music, La Bohème) will play Captain Georg von Trapp and ASHLEY BROWN (Broadway’s Mary Poppins, NBC’s The Sound of Music) will play The Mother Abbess with MERWIN FOARD as Max Detweiler, TERI HANSEN as Elsa Schraeder, DAN TRACY as Rolf and PAIGE SILVESTER as Liesl. The von Trapp children will be played by ERICH SCHUETT (Friedrich), MARIA KNASEL (Louisa), QUINN ERICKSON (Kurt), SVEA JOHNSON (Brigitta), MACKENZIE CURRIE (Marta) and AUDREY BENNETT (Gretl).

Introducing Jack O’Brien’s brand new discovery, KERSTIN ANDERSON as Maria Rainer. A current student at Pace University, Ms. Anderson won the coveted role from hundreds who auditioned.

The ensemble includes Carey Rebecca Brown, Ronald Brown, Caitlin Burke, Christopher Carl, Kyla Carter, Austin Colby, Daniella Dalli, Elisabeth Evans, Donna Garner, Meghan Hales, Jenavene Hester, Adam Hill, Jeremy Michael Lanuti, Darren Matthias, Kelly McCormick, Julia Osborne, Andrea Ross, Brent Schindele and Jim Schubin.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, suggested by The Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp. This new production is directed by Jack O’Brien (credits include: Hairspray, The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Coast of Utopia), choreographed by Danny Mefford (Fun Home, The Bridges of Madison County and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) and music supervision by Andy Einhorn (Bullets Over Broadway, Rodgers & Hammersteins Cinderella, Brief Encounter, The Light in the Piazza). The design and production team is comprised of Douglas Schmidt, set design (Tony Award® nominee: 42nd Street, Into the Woods); Jane Greenwood, costume design (2014 recipient of the Special Tony Award® for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre), Natasha Katz, lighting design (Five-time Tony Award® winner: An American in Paris, Once, Aida, The Coast of Utopia, The Glass Menagerie) and Ken Travis, sound design (Aladdin, Newsies, Memphis). Casting by Telsey + Company/Rachel Hoffman, CSA.

According to director Jack O’Brien, “THE SOUND OF MUSIC has been in our ears for decades, as it deserves to be. But it might be time to look once more, and more closely, at this remarkable work which, I feel, begins to reveal itself as deeper, richer, and more powerful than ever. It’s no longer ‘your mother’s’ familiar SOUND OF MUSIC. We are tearing off the varnish of the past from one of the great glories of our theatergoing experience and making it fresh! This is an opportunity we’ve all longed to create!”

Producer Beth Williams (Grove Entertainment) said, “It’s a great privilege to bring this beloved Rodgers & Hammerstein musical to theaters across North America. We hope that people of all ages will continue to fall in love with it for the first time, or all over again, and that it will truly become one of their ‘favorite things.’ From our distinguished team led by the creative master Jack O’Brien, audiences can expect a truly magnificent production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC.”

In the words of Ted Chapin, President of Rodgers & Hammerstein, “THE SOUND OF MUSIC continues to be the world’s most beloved musical. When a major national tour was suggested, I not only agreed, but was willing to roll up my sleeves and do whatever I could to fashion a new stage production that would re-engage today’s theatergoing public. The show was originally created for Broadway, and seeing it on stage only reinforces the power of the story and the score. And with Jack O’Brien at the directorial helm – well, we simply couldn’t do better. Landing somewhere between The Coast of Utopia and Hairspray (shows for which Jack won the Tony®), his production is smart, focused, and surprising.”

THE SOUND OF MUSIC enjoyed extraordinary success as the first live television production of a musical in over 50 years when “The Sound of Music Live!” aired on NBC in December, 2013; 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the film version, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history. The spirited, romantic and beloved musical story of Maria and the Von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with such songs as “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “Edelweiss” and the title song.

Single tickets for THE SOUND OF MUSIC, from $25 – $106 (pricing subject to change), are now on sale online at DallasSummerMusicals.org, by phone at 1.800.514.ETIX (3849) and at The Box Office, 5959 Royal Lane, Suite 542 in Dallas, TX.

DSM's Best Actor & Actress on the road to the 2015 National High School Musical Theatre Awards

June 25th, 2015

Hello DSM Fans!

It’s that time of year when after countless hours of searching for the best of the best we get to experience the National High School Musical Theatre Awards through the eyes of our very own 2015 DSM HSMTA Best Actor (Chris Clark) and Best Actress (Katelyn Cave) as they spend a whole week preparing to compete in the nationals. Check out what their experience has been like after arriving yesterday in the Big Apple.

2015 NHSMTA

Here’s what Chris and Katelyn had to say after their first full day in NYC:

Hello Dallas!

Though I miss you dearly, New York has been an experience of a life time! I’m writing you now as I’m on my way to see an American in Paris, my first Broadway show I’ll ever see. The rehearsals are intense but Chris and I are pushing forward and soaking up every bit of knowledge we can. So far we’ve already met a Broadway producer, the president of the Broadway League, the famous composer of Jekyll and Hyde, and there’s bound to be more that we haven’t even noticed in our rehearsals! It’s all been a dream come true and I’m so grateful for the experience thus far.

– Katelyn

Today was Day 2 in NYC! We learned the opening number vocals last night, and it’s going to sound amazing! There are so many Broadway shows represented in the music and it’s a blast to sing with the other nominees who are sooooo talented!

Today was Katelyn and I’s first coaching session with our coach, Michael McElroy. He is so amazing and is so much fun to work with! We are on our way to Sardi’s for dinner and then An American in Paris! This is such an amazing experience!

– Chris
