Tommy Tune will bring open the Dallas Summer Musical season with his show \"Steps in Time.\"

New Season: Dallas Summer Musicals

Rather dull 2011 season is leaked prematurely. There's still one title to be announced, though.

published Wednesday, September 29, 2010

The 2011 Dallas Summer Musicals season wasn't going to be announced until next week, but an ad that was supposed to be pulled from the Shrek Playbill, with the 2011 shows, was accidentally left in. Oops.

So, here are the seven shows scheduled for 2011. If this lineup says anything, it's that the touring product is seriously lacking right now. There are some interesting shows touring out there, namely the Tony-winning In the Heights and Next to Normal, but considering that all three local touring presenters have announced their new seasons (the others are AT&T Performing Arts Center's Lexus Broadway Series and the Performing Arts Fort Worth series at Bass Hall), it looks like North Texas won't be getting either of those.

The only new show in the DSM 2011 lineup is 9 to 5 the Musical, which will also play in Fort Worth in July 2011. And ATTPAC already scored the biggest new hit for its 2010-'11 season, Billy Elliot.

There is hope: An insider at DSM confirms that there's still one more show to be announced for the 2011 season. Considering this mostly dull lineup below, we're not holding out hope for anything terribly interesting.

Here's what's up for 2011. All shows at the Music Hall at Fair Park, and some are only one week, hinting that the economy isn't great for tours right now:

  • Tommy Tune in Steps in Time (March 15-20)
  • The dance extravaganza Burn the Floor (April 5-17)
  • 9 to 5 the Musical (May 18-29)
  • Stomp (June 7-12)
  • Monty Python's Spamalot (June 14-26)
  • Guys and Dolls (July 19-31)
  • The new tour of the recent West Side Story revival (Oct. 4-23)

Stay tuned for more info on tickets, and the additional show. Thanks For Reading
