Reaching Out: Dallas Children's Theater believes all children, families and members in the education community deserve the opportunity to experience live theater and its powerful effects; especially those who might consider cost a barrier.

I booked the Gables for a 10hr conference event and it could not have been more perfect. Troy took care of us so incredibly well that our attendees thought he was a close friend of the speakers and a volunteer. We could not have asked for a better experience or a better price. No other venue this size has so much value, and rarely do venues ever care as much as Troy did for us. He even helped us when we were carrying our personal belongings to our cars, and went to the parking lot with us to say goodbye. Every one of our attendees loved the theater and wanted to come back next year. I'm pleased to support the theater and all the amazing work they do for the community.

This was our first time here. The location is great. The building is clean, nice and well maintained. We went with friends who said the doors are usually opened 30 min before the show. The doors didn't open until 15 min before and the lines were very long. It would be much more convenient to have a small cafe or at least some vending machines but we didn't see either.

I praise this theater for giving so much to the community. That magical feeling of raw theater can be experience in your pores. Must go!

My school worked there for the first time yesterday to see Frosty and Friends. I had a good time. The kids (Pre-K and Kinder) loved it. It wasn't too crowded and I felt like we were important. I can't wait to go back.
