Since the Dee and Charles Wyly Theater’s opening, the Dallas Theater Center has been associated with all types of performing arts productions, from high drama to innovative new works. But it’s doubtful it’s ever been linked with hillbilly shenanigans. But that is going to change when “Moonshine: That Hee Haw Musical” opens on Wednesday, September 2.
The Broadway-bound musical is based on a book by Robert Horn with music and lyrics by Nashville’s Brandy Clark and Shane McNcAnally.
To take advantage of the fun to fundraise, Brice Beaird, Elle Oberdick and Dan Waldmann are chairing Moonshine Celebration on Saturday, September 12, complete with a full night of partying with Lyn Muse and Kim Sheffield serving as honorary co-chairs.
According to Dan, “We are throwing a good ol’ fashioned hoedown with tons of great food, live music straight from Nashville and other surprises.”
The evening will start with a cocktail reception at 5 p.m. followed by the performance at 6 p.m. and dinner and dance starting at Gilley’s around 8:30 p.m.
Tickets range from the full-evening package to the show-only offering.
