The Water Tower Theatre - Addison

The Water Tower Theatre

WaterTower Theatre

WaterTower Theatre is a community playhouse that does high-class musicals, plays, and even brings in big-name Broadway stars for private concerts. It is a not-for-profit playhouse that averages about 5 shows a year in the Addison Theatre Centre, located right by the Addison! water tower. The shows are wonderful, top of the line. This isn't just a bunch of community members singing and dancing to recordings. These are wonderful performers from all over the country!

They even have summer productions in the park for free for the community members. (See other tip.)

The last time I attended an event it was for a Christmas show with Betty Buckley, Tony-award winner. The theatre is so intimate and small that it was really a treasure. My aunt worked for her dressing room while doing Sunset Boulevard so I was so excited that our seats were so close. Definitely worth the $50/ticket price!

Tickets can range from $10-100 depending on the performance or special event. They have a wide array of events depending on the time of year you'll be visiting.

Address: 15650 Addison Road, Addison, TX 75001

Directions: The Addison Theatre Centre is just a few blocks north of Belt Line Road directly underneath the Addison water tower and just west of Addison Circle.

Addison Circle Park Addison Circle Park Review

**Pictures will not upload. Will try later...

I visit Dallas often and spend all of the holidays here. I lived here but before this sight I wasn't really inspired to visit more of what the city has to offer. So, the last time I went, I thought to look on Dallas Calendar of Events. It talked about a musical (Water Tower Theatre) in the Addison Circle Park. With admission being $10 and I being a former musician I decided to check it out.

I was really impressed with the park. Addison has worked hard on its area lately and the evidence is there. Although the park is right beside the airport and Belt Line Rd (busiest street so far), you wouldn't be able to notice. This charming park has everything you need for a fun afternoon.

Bring a frizbee, ice chest, and a picnic. Let the kids run through the fountains. Walk around the charming shops, or maybe check out one of the surrounding restaurants. Maybe you enjoy running or walking...and this would definitely be the place for a new routine.

If you're planning a family reunion or wedding reception the facilities can also be rented.

Address: Addison Rd.

Directions: Addison is north of downtown Dallas. The park is conveniently located just north of Belt Line Rd between Addison Rd and Quorum Dr adjacent to the popular urban area known as Addison Circle. Across from the Addison airport.

Theatre in the Park Theatre in the Park Review

**Pictures will not upload. Will try again later...

Water Tower Theatre offers a busy season of shows running at all times of the year. During the summer they put on a musical in the park. I enjoyed it, except for the sitting in the grass. The singers were great. Acting was great. The people attending were polite. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra was the accompaniament so it added to the magic of it. Make sure to bring a lawn chair with you. I figured they'd have some place to sit...nope. Also, bring a cooler with some wine, beer, etc, maybe even some dinner and make a fun night of it, picnic and all. Tickets are only $10 and it's worth every cent. You get to watch the sun set as the performance starts. Great summer night out!

Other than in the summer they perform at their own theater. I haven't seen it but if the park set a precident I'm sure it's worth it.

Address: 15650 Addison Rd.

Directions: Addison Rd. is right off of Beltline. It's right across from the Addison airport.
