About Us - Dallas Theater Center

We believe in creating theatrical art of the highest caliber that will engage, entertain, educate, and serve as an inspiration for all.


Dallas Theater Center was founded in 1959 as one of the first regional theaters in the United States, located at the legendary Frank Lloyd Wright’s Kalita Humphreys Theater. Under the inaugural leadership of Paul Baker, Dallas Theater Center became one of the nation’s leading producers of experimental interpretations of classics and world premieres.

Over the years, our innovative, dynamic programming has made a significant mark on the Dallas community as well as the American theater at large. From classic scripts to new plays, from epic to intimate, we strive to continue our tradition of providing a next-level experience to theater lovers worldwide.
