Dallas Summer Musicals Announces 2016-2017 Season

An American In Paris is a big highlight of the Broadway shows coming to Fair Park this season.

An American in Paris comes from Broadway to Fair Park next year as part of Dallas Summer Musicals’ 2016-2017 season. The Tony-winning hit, which was partly produced by DSM and former president Michael Jenkins, was guaranteed to come to Dallas this season.

The six-show season begins Dec. 6 with a holiday production of Broadway Christmas Wonderland, although the  Rudolph musical opens as an add-on Nov. 25. Other visiting shows include The Bodyguard, Circus 1903 — The Golden Age of Circus, and Let It Be, the Beatles tribute.

The fan favorite Kinky Boots will return, and another recent DSM hit, the all-star magician showcase The Illusionists, is back as a season add-on. Stomp and Cheers Live On Stage, based on the television show and the bar where everybody knows your name, round out the 2016-2017 lineup.

DSM will co-present An American in Paris for a run at the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth, where Broadway lovers can look forward to a season that includes Annie, Rent, and Matilda.

Dallas Summer Musicals season tickets are on sale now, as are tickets for Broadway at the Bass.
