Driving Miss Daisy
The Denton Community Theatre presents “Driving Miss Daisy” by Alfred Uhry will take place February 5-6, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at the Campus Theatre. This play is sweet and heartwarming with an affirming message rather than a self-righteous one. Ticket prices are $15 individually and there are also group ticket packages. The Campus Theatre is accessible by the A-train (short walk from the DDTC).
Master Class Play
The Greater Lewisville Community Theatre presents “Master Class,” a Tony-award winning play that centers around real-life diva Maria Callas from February 12-28, 2016. As her career winds down, you see her as a glamorous, commanding, and funny teacher holding a voice master class at Julliard. Alternately dismayed and impressed by the students she sees, she retreats into recollections about the glories of her own life and career. It culminates with a stirring monologue about sacrifice made in the name of art. Ride the A-train to Old Town Station and take a brisk walk to the theatre. For more information, visit www.glct.org.
