And heres another special Add-On Opportunity

By order of the King and Queen, Dallas Children's Theater is convening its royal court of brave Knights and lovely Princesses for a Dream Ball to be held Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 6 PM at the Rosewood Center. The Ball will follow a performance of the season opener RAPUNZEL! RAPUNZEL! A VERY HAIRY FAIRY TALE, and it promises to be an evening of feast, fun, and festivities.

Following the play, Knights and Princesses will have a chance to try their hand at swordplay, play dress up in the beauty room and enjoy an exclusive autograph session with the cast of RAPUNZEL! Then, the Royal Chefs will prepare a meal fit for nobility before everyone takes to the floor for a stately dance. Adults: we've got great beverages for you, too, and a castle on the stage that beckons a family photo!

Children ages 4 to 10 and their parents are invited to attend. Tickets to the Dream Ball are $50 per person and proceeds will support DCT's Sensory-Friendly Programming. These are specially adapted performances for children with autism, Asperger syndrome, Down syndrome and other developmental challenges. Please note: This Reservation is Non Refundable once made.
