Join Garland Civic Theatre for our 50th Anniversary Season! Garland Civic Theatre was founded in 1968 and is the oldest community theatre in Dallas County. To celebrate, we are producing a spectacular season of theatre filled with mystery, laughter, music, and love. Garland Civic Theatre is proud to present “Dracula The Musical” as we continue our enchanting 50th Anniversary Season. Drink deep... and live forever! “Dracula” is a haunting and passionate new musical based on the world-famous novel by Bram Stoker.
“Dracula The Musical” is a thrilling drama of suspense and a Gothic romance of dreamlike temptation from the extraordinary team of Christopher Hampton, Don Black and Frank Wildhorn (“Jekyll & Hyde”). Set in Europe at the end of the Victorian Age, the story follows the famed vampire as he lusts for new blood. Jonathan Harker and Mina Murray fall victim to Dracula's unnatural charm and, along with Doctor Van Helsing, must fight Dracula's supernatural powers. “Dracula” will enthrall you with its powerful score as it brings the undead to life in this breathtaking musical of unrequited love.
The talented cast features Evan Figg as Jonathan Harker, Joshua Hensley as Count Dracula, Stephanie Hall-Roberston as Mina Murray, Brandy Nuttall as Renfield and Belladonna, Russell Sims as Dr. Jack Seward, Maya Ferrer as Lucy Westerna, Jacob Drum as Quincey Morris, Brian Hokanson as Arthur Holmwood, Timothy Turner-Parrish as Professor Van Helsing, Hannah Meagley as Lucretia, and Samantha Masucci as Pandora. The production is directed and designed by Kyle McClaran, music directed by Jeanie Adamson, and stage managed by Brandy Nuttall.

Garland Civic Theatre is proud to celebrate its 50th anniversary during the 2017-18 season. Since 1967, GCT has provided quality shows, including musicals, mysteries, comedies and dramas, by joining gifted directors with talented actors and crew, along with great music and beautiful sets. To celebrate the anniversary, the theatre has lowered ticket prices for this season only. Attend the 2017-18 offerings listed below for $17 and $18.
In December 1967 a “Goals For Garland” committee recognized the need for a small theater program. Vivian Yarborough, who served as chairman of Garland Parks and Recreation Department board, then called a meeting of those interested in forming a theater group. Pat Adams was also instrumental in getting the theatre started, attending that first meeting. Fundraising efforts began and the theatre was incorporated in April 1968. Acting workshops were held and by August, “The Drunkard” was performed on two weekends to great acclaim. By that November, the first season production took place in a church fellowship hall: “Barefoot in the Park” directed by Ed DeLatte.

GCT needs your help and support! Many people believe that GCT is funded and run by the City of Garland, which is incorrect. The theatre runs on grants, donations, and ticket sales. With the high cost of operations, costumes, set materials, and other expenses and the extreme decreases in funding for the arts, we need your donations in order to continue to bring you the high-quality theatre that you expect from us. We want to be here in the Garland community for another 50 years!
