Dallas Children's Theater Presents Diary of a Worm, a Spider, and a Fly
‪Performance Hall, Sept. 14, 7:30 p.m. and Septe. 15 at 1:30 p.m., FREE

The coolest ever rock-n-roll romp in a bug's world, capturing all the droll humor and whimsy of the wildly popular books! Insects rule in the diaries of unlikely best friends: Worm, Spider, and Fly. Worm eats his homework, Fly believes she has superpowers, and Spider can't wait to grow up and molt. Promoting eco-consciousness, earth science, and tolerance of other, Diary of a Worm, a Spider, and a Fly is a joyful, hip musical exploration of the world outside. You might just find that a bug's life is not all that different from your own! For ages 5 through adult.

Drama

Oct. 10-13
She Stoops to Conquer
Directed by Lori Honeycutt
Lower Courtyard, Oct. 10-13, 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 11, 11 a.m., FREE

Called a "laughing comedy" by playwright Oliver Goldsmith, the play provides a raucous tale of mistaken identities, spirited hijinks, and a good dose of lighthearted romance. Charles Marlow, bashful around women of his own upper class—yet quite frisky amongst the serving girls—is on his way to the Hardcastle household to court Kate, the daughter of a county squire. Hilarity ensues when a bit of tomfoolery causes Marlow and his friend Hastings to mistake the home for an inn, the squire for the innkeeper, and Kate for a serving wench. Kate quickly realizes that a saucy servant is just the role needed to woo her beloved in this rollicking misadventure.

Nov. 15-16
And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank
Performance Hall, Nov. 15-16, 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., FREE

‪A multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors Ed Silverberg and Eva Schloss with live actors recreating scenes from their lives during World War II. Ed was Anne Frank's first boyfriend, and she wrote about him in the beginning of her now-famous diary. Eva Schloss was the same age as Anne Frank and lived in the same apartment building in Amsterdam. Part oral history, part dramatic action, part direct address, part remembrance, the ensemble-driven And Then They Came for Me breaks new ground and has been acclaimed by audiences and critics in worldwide productions.

Performance Hall
