Skip to the Loop, My Darlin'

It’s springtime in Dallas, a time of year heralded by the omnipresent specter of Pete Delkus, a rash of patio brunching, and the annual Out of the Loop Fringe Festival at WaterTower Theatre. Out of the Loop always kicks off the seasonal theater season with a bang, featuring a juried selection of plays, dance, comedy and experimental performances from a variety of local companies over a period of 10 days. This year’s festival begins on Thursday with a reception for Resonate, an installation from local painter CJ Miller, from 6 to 8 p.m. Six new pieces from Miller’s “resonate” series and several works from his “square one” series will fill the walls of the WaterTower Theatre, inside the Addison Conference Center (15650 Addison Road). The free event serves as a kick off for the festival, which will also present its first performance — a production of The Spark — at 8 p.m. That play will continue through March 15. Other shows to be featured this year include The Victims Improv Comedy Hour from Alternative Comedy Theater, Blaque-To-Blaque by the Blaque Artists Collective, Cyrano A-Go-Go from Audacity Theatre Lab, Bottled Poetry by Contemporary Ballet Dallas and 17 other diverse performances. Tickets are $10 per show, or $65 for a festival pass. Visit watertowertheatre.org for all the details.
Thu., March 5, 6-8 p.m.; Tuesdays-Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: March 5. Continues through March 15, 2015
