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.
