Dallas Performing Arts Groups Launch Sampler Series

Dec 3, 2013

Here’s a holiday gift idea.

You can now buy a ticket package to seven different Dallas performing arts groups for shows running February through April.

The ticket packages are called DPASS, which stands for Dallas Performing Arts Sampler Series.

The shows include Godspell at the AT&T Performing Arts Center, The Barber of Seville from Dallas Opera and Cultural Awareness by Dallas Black Dance Theatre.

Ticketbuyers can choose three shows, four shows, all the way up to seven, with each show costing $25.

Chris Heinbaugh, vice president for external affairs for the AT&T Performing Arts Center, says the purpose of DPASS is to make the arts affordable for people who might not attend otherwise.

“We’re also looking at people who may be dance aficionados and get them to try Broadway,” he said. “That’s what we’re looking at, is kind of getting people engaged in different art forms or getting them engaged in the arts at all.”

DPASS packages are on sale only through Jan. 15, but we can expect more of these collaborations from area arts groups. In fact, Heinbaugh says, an arts festival spearheaded by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will be announced in January.

DPASS tickets can be purchased by phone or through the box offices of the different organizations.
