This cleverly-named event pairs Pegasus Contemporary Ballet at Pegasus City Brewery for the return of PCBxPCB Pints on Pointe. The company will present a preview of its next show scheduled for June as well as a behind-the-scenes creative look with resident choreographer Carrie Ruth Trumbo. Plus, guests can meet the company members.

Grab a beer, wine or even a flight of Pegasus City’s beer labels. The event supports Pegasus Contemporary’s programming.  Plus, each ticket includes a beer or cider drink. The brewery will also validate nearby garage parking.

Repertory Company Theatre announces a lively summer of musicals

Earlier this week, Richardson’s RCT declared a musical summer with three shows slated from June-August. Tickets are on sale now here. All shows performed Tby RCT’s REP Company actors. Here is RCT’s upcoming summer schedule (from RCT):

June 16-25: Footloose the Musical. This explosive Broadway musical set to the rockin’ rhythm of the film’s Oscar and Grammy–nominated Top 40 score and augmented with dynamic new Tony–nominated songs for the stage musical.   

July 21-30: Brigadoon. The mystery and beauty of the Scottish Highlands is the backdrop for Lerner and Loewe’s magical tale about following your heart and the power of love.

Aug. 18-27: The Drowsy Chaperone. The screwball musical within a comedy pays tribute to the Jazz-Age shows of the 1920s and their power to transport us into a dazzling fantasy and to lift our spirits. 


Tootsie opens Tuesday at Bass Hall after finishing its run last month for Broadway Dallas. See our interview with the queer actor who’s making her start with the show.

For Saturday’s Command Performance and Gala at the Winspear, TITAS/DANCE UNBOUND will honor ATTPAC for its contribution to TITAS’ mission.
