DTC announces 2012-13 season

The Dallas Theater Center’s fourth season at the Wyly Theatre continues to extend performances into the Kalita Humphreys space where Uptown Players calls home, but this will officially be the last year A Christmas Carol is performed there. The upcoming season itself claims lots of new works or regional premieres in an eclectic season of comedy, professional wrestling, flying men and musicals with the word “fly” in the title.

Pocket Sandwich gets spooky with ‘Dracula: The Melodrama’

This play sucks — but that’s a good thing

Pocket Sandwich Theatre’s melodramas are a Dallas treasure. Because anytime you’re allowed to throw food at someone (in this case, popcorn only), then it’ll be a good time. Being October though, their latest offering also caters to the season of Halloween. Dracula: The Melodrama gives you the chance to laugh and shriek…and toss popcorn at the cast. Just don’t get it in Drac’s mouth. That might mess with the fangs.

DEETS: Pocket Sandwich Theatre, 5400 E. Mockingbird Lane. Through Nov. 13. 8 p.m. $10–$18. PocketSandwichTheatre.com.
