AT THE THEATER
This week, DCH = Dallas Cares, Houston
Our neighbors on the Gulf Coast are in the middle of one of the worst natural disasters of a lifetime. To show our support, Dallas Comedy House is launching a few initiatives this week. A food drive for North Texas Food Bank in the Training Center and theater now thru Sunday, all ticket sales from the Sunday shows (including student showcases and a special 'Hometown Houston' show) going to Dallas County Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster, joining Central Track's #DTX4HTX efforts with 20% of all sales on Wednesday, September 6th, and we've reached out to Houston's Station Theater and offered our assistance.
If you're located a little further north, our friends at ComedySportz Dallas are donating 20% of their proceeds from their Saturday shows and are accepting additional donations. OKC Improv will be donating proceeds from the Friday, September 8th show, as well.
Student Lotto is Back!
