D ear f ri e n ds,

From the launch of the campaign to build a major performing arts center in Dallas, to the opening of the AT&T Performing Arts Center in 2009, to the magic we perform each and every day, serving our community has been at the core of everything we do. Of course, the Center is perhaps best known for providing North Texas with the finest in the performing arts, from Broadway and superstar performers to dance, music, comedy and more. And we make sure our resident companies are performing in some of the finest venues in the nation. But as Dallas and North Texas have grown, so has our sense of community and the many ways we find to serve it. Each year, Open Stages, our growing education program, provides access to learning opportunities like world-class performances and technical training for thousands of Dallas students, all through the support of the Center’s generous donors. We have worked closely with our Arts District neighbors to help update and redefine the Sasaki Plan, working to make the cultural heart of the city a walkable, vibrant neighborhood that removes barriers and provides access to the arts for all.

2016 20 201 PHOTO CREDIT: Carter Rose

Our community includes our colleagues in the arts. The Center is working to provide more than 80 diverse cultural organizations with a wide range of services, from free marketing and low-cost ticketing to performance space on the Center’s campus.

Last summer, the Center partnered with the Dallas Police Department to help it build bridges of trust between young people and law enforcement. These are just a few examples you will find in this Report to the Community. In today’s rapidly changing cultural and entertainment environment, service to community is the value that will help set the Center apart. This is especially important in the push to complete the Center’s capital campaign, retiring its remaining construction debt. From there we can focus all of our resources on fulfilling the Center’s mission: to be a public gathering place that strengthens community and fosters creativity through the performing arts. Our hope is that the magic of this campus will continue to inspire and excite long into the future—and with folks like you ensuring its continued growth and success, we have no doubt that it will. So thank you for your ongoing support for the Center and for the arts in Dallas. Best regards,

DOUGLAS T. CURTIS PRESIDENT & CEO AT&T PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

The AT&T Performing Arts Center sits in the Dallas Arts District, the cultural heart of the city. Opera, theatre, dance, Broadway, comedy, music, speakers, free festivals, fitness, arts education and more all play out in the Center’s iconic venues and on its 10-acre campus. The Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Annette Strauss Square and Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park were all created to serve the Center’s five resident companies and our growing and diverse North Texas community.

The Center’s Broadway Series brings the finest musicals and plays to North Texas. In 2016, the Center presented eight award-winning shows in the Winspear Opera House, which provides the best Broadway experience in North Texas. The intimate and gorgeous 2,200-seat hall features outstanding acoustics, a welcoming staff and, for visiting artists, a stunning stage where they can perform their art.

SERVING THROUGH ENGAGEMENT _

The 20th Anniversary Tour of Rent reminded today’s audiences about the fear and stigma of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s and ’90s. To help add context and highlight the tremendous impact AIDS is still having today, we assembled a panel of AIDS experts, patient advocates and caregivers. They shared that while more treatable and preventable, the disease is on the rise among infants, young people and minority communities.

policing. This year at the Winspear Opera House, Dallas police officers and a thousand teens came together to learn how to interact, talk and listen to each other. The Center is proud to be a gathering place where barriers between youth and police are broken and our community united. “They are afraid of the police. They see police coming into the neighborhood as an occupying force. There’s nothing to be afraid of here at the Winspear.” – Dallas Police Chief David Brown

3. Collaboration Promotes Tolerance _ Roundabout Theatre Company’s national tour of Cabaret painted the horrifying buildup to the Holocaust. This provided an opportunity for collaboration with the Dallas Holocaust Museum/ Center for Education & Tolerance. To help raise funds for its forthcoming capital expansion, more than 400 museum supporters attended a performance and some underwriters were invited to a preshow discussion with a member of the cast.

4. Engaging Millennials _ To engage, serve and grow millennial audiences, the Center “took the show to them.” To announce our 2016/2017 season of Broadway, the Center hosted a Broadway Bar Crawl where fans followed our team from restaurant to restaurant as we revealed the season and gave away fun prizes. The Center is also hosting regular weekend events at the Alamo Drafthouse in the trendy Cedars neighborhood. Brunch on Broadway pairs screenings of movie musicals with themed food and drink specials and has been a hit!

5. Corporate Forum _ The Center is continuing to find ways to serve the business community through the Corporate Circle Forum. This speaker/interview series brings together Dallas business leaders for conversations with top newsmakers of the day. From Robert Kaplan, President and CEO of the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank, to Billy Beane, the man who turned baseball on its head, the speakers are always relevant and engaging. Building relationships is a Corporate Forum member benefit that is paying strong dividends for the Corporate Circle’s business leaders.

6. Building Our Neighborhood's Future _ For 30 years, the Sasaki Plan has been the guiding development document for the Dallas Arts District. In 2016, the Arts District engaged the renowned Boston urban planning firm NBBJ to update the plan and help envision and realize the district’s future. The Center’s leadership has played a key role in helping transform the district into a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly, arts-focused neighborhood in the heart of Dallas. The new plan will be finished in 2017.

In 2016, the Center began working with w the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) to provide a range of services to support fellow arts organizations, with a n emphasis on small, emerging and midsize organizations. They includ de:

ARTS MONTH

Performance Space _

_

Mayor Mike Rawlings declared April 2017 as Dallas Arts Month— 30 days highlighting the best that the city’s cultural community can provide. The Center provided extensive marketing and planning sources, and joined with the Dallas Arts District and TITAS Presents to present a giant street festival featuring a trio of free outdoor performances by the aerial dance artists of Bandaloop.

The Center has brought back the Elevator Project, which provides performance space in the Arts District for small and emerging groups who don’t have a performance home. The projects, which will be chosen through an annual twolevel review process, may include drama, dance and music. Performance spaces include Hamon Hall and the 6th Floor black box space in the Wyly Theatre.

Marketing and Ticketing _

To help spread the word about the richness and diversity of the Dallas arts scene, the Center created a unique Culture Calendar for its website. This highlights the arts events of Dallas cultural groups who receive support from the OCA. The Center has also created a twicea-month e-mail to the Center’s 180,000-person database. For the arts groups, this introduces them to potential new audiences, and the patrons discover the full range of cultural events in every corner of our city. The Center has also redesigned its TicketDFW ticketing operation to provide small to midsize arts groups and the City’s cultural centers with free to low-cost ticketing options for their events.

Today’s audiences have more entertainment choices than ever before, leaving arts institutions FIghting for both product and patrons. The Center has always worked hard to get the best Broadway shows and top performers, which attract audiences and are major revenue drivers.

But today’s competitors include mid- to mega-sized concert venues, sporting events and casinos. New performance facilities in the Dallas suburbs threaten to lure away even more audience. And the volume and quality of cable, streaming and video game products all entice patrons to enjoy their entertainment at home. These are challenges facing all cultural institutions. The opportunity in front of the Center is to continue to find new ways to fulfill its mission and become even more relevant to our community; to explore new and impactful educational, community and artistic programs that will increase audiences, revenue and giving; to ensure that our level of service and the quality of our venues remain second to none; and to look for opportunities for artistic and operational collaborations that benefit all. The AT&T Performing Arts Center, its Board of Directors, staff and volunteers are committed to finding the opportunity in each challenge, and continuing to sustain the Center as a gift that enriches the lives of everyone in our community. We thank you for your ongoing support of the arts and the Center.
