Following the popularity of last season’s “Pinkalicious The Musical” costume design contest, Dallas Children’s Theater continues to do its part to cheer on aspiring designers by making their creative dreams a reality. As the theater celebrates 30 great years of service to the community, DCT raises its hat in gratitude and admiration to all the artists, patrons, board members and friends who have helped to make DCT what it is today.
“Our hats are off to the nearly four million people, and counting, who have seen a DCT performance to date,” says Robyn Flatt, DCT’s executive artistic director and co-founder. “Three decades is a dream come true and we are planning parties and fun for everyone so that celebration lasts all season long.”
Eleven winners will help build their hat with DCT’s resident designer, Emmy nominated Lyle Huchton. One winning entry for each show in the 2013-2014 season will be chosen, and the winning hat will actually appear on stage in that show! Winners will also receive a bio in the show program, four tickets to opening night and recognition on the stage. Everyone who submits an entry will have their beautiful design prominently displayed in DCT’s lobby for the entire season. At the conclusion of the season, the winning hats will be auctioned off in a fundraiser benefiting DCT. All entries must be received by 5 p.m. on Monday, July 15. Winners will be announced on Friday, August 2.
