Dallas Summer Musicals, Inc. (DSM) and Performing Arts Fort Worth (PAFW) are thrilled to announce their 2016-2017 Broadway seasons! Once again, the two performing arts groups will come together to co-present four titles, allowing patrons across North Texas ample opportunities to experience the Best of Broadway.

Dallas Summer Musicals will kick off its 2016-2017 Season with the dazzling holiday favorite, BROADWAY CHRISTMAS WONDERLAND. The season will continue with the Tony Award®- winning lavish and stunning Broadway hit AN AMERICAN IN PARIS; followed by the spectacular theatrical concert, LET IT BE, a tribute to The Beatles; back by popular demand, the high-heeled kicking sensation, KINKY BOOTS; the captivating circus extravaganza, CIRCUS 1903 – THE GOLDEN AGE OF CIRCUS; and closing the season, the romantic thriller based on the smash hit film, THE BODYGUARD, starring Grammy® nominee Deborah Cox!

In addition, the beloved family-friendly stage adaptation, RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSE REINDEER: THE MUSICAL; the Emmy® Award-winning classic hit TV series, CHEERS LIVE ON STAGE; the explosive and vigorously choreographed, STOMP; and the magical and thrilling return of, THE ILLUSIONISTS will be presented as season add-ons.

"The future of the performing arts has never looked brighter and our new season lineup brings the types of shows that remind us why we love live theater," states David Hyslop, DSM Interim Managing Director. "From classical lavish debuts like An American In Paris, to high energy returning engagements like Kinky Boots as well as fun family productions such as Broadway Christmas Wonderland, this season has something for everyone. We invite you to join us as we witness the beauty of the performing arts when the curtain goes up and the magical world of theater unfolds before your eyes."


Performing Arts Fort Worth's season is made up of eight shows, six of which are making their Bass Hall debuts.


Kicking off the season in January, 2017, will be the family favorite ANNIE, returning to the Hall in an all-new production. The Chicago Tribune called the show "one of the best family musicals ever penned." The series will close in November, 2017, with another show back by popular demand, IRVING BERLIN'S WHITE CHRISTMAS. In between will be the direct-from-Broadway AN AMERICAN IN PARIS, the acclaimed, Tony Award- winning musical about love and mystery in the City of Lights; the ultimate tribute to The Beatles, LET IT BE; MATILDA, based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl and winner of 50 international awards, including four Tonys; THE BODYGUARD, a musical retelling of the hit 1992 film featuring singer Deborah Cox; BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL, which tells the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom; and the 20th anniversary tour of the Broadway sensation RENT.


Continuing a partnership that blossomed two seasons ago, Dallas Summer Musicals and Performing Arts Fort Worth will co-present four of these titles: RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER: THE MUSICAL; AN AMERICAN IN PARIS; LET IT BE; and THE BODYGUARD.


"For the first time ever, we're offering eight shows, many of which have never played in Fort Worth before," says Dione Kennedy, President & CEO of Performing Arts Fort Worth. "And as we always strive to do, we've put together a season that offers something for everyone, from families to serious Broadway buffs to everyone in between. It's really a dynamite season."
