Now in its fourth season, this venue for live theater just keeps getting better with age. Located in a converted church one block off Lower Greenville, CTD had to add more seats to accommodate their growing audiences for PG-13 fare such as Steel Magnolias and the recent Miss Firecracker Contest. Artistic director and founder Sue Loncar and her right-hand man Tom Sime (he left The Dallas Morning News theater beat to work here) set this theater apart by creating a cozy, welcoming atmosphere for every production. Instead of squeezing into rows of hard chairs, patrons are seated at large round tables decorated with centerpieces themed to every show. The proximity of a full bar at the back of the theater means you can sip a highball or green appletini even when the lights go down. No expense is spared on productions, with sets and costumes that rival bigger Equity houses. Because Loncar pays reasonable wages to actors, CTD attracts the area's top talent.
