-- Critically-acclaimed Four Day Weekend Comedy, the premier improvisation group who has been performing their award-winning show in their own 212-seat theater in the heart of downtown Fort Worth for 20 years, has announced their plan to open a second location off Lower Greenville in Dallas, Texas in 2018.
The new 150-seat Four Day Weekend Dallas Theater will be a throwback to the golden age of entertainment, where Copacabana meets old Las Vegas Rat Pack. The newly remodeled theater will be cabaret-style seating for 110 downstairs and 40 in the intimate upstairs balcony. The Dallas show will feature some of Four Day Weekend's signature improvisation scenes, songs, and sketches that audience members have come to love. Audiences can also expect to see a combination of both Four Day's veteran cast along with some amazing new talent.
"So many of our audience members make the drive from Dallas to Fort Worth each weekend, we decided it made more sense for us to bring the comedy to them," said Four Day Weekend co-founder David Wilk. "We love the city and the people of Fort Worth, and we're excited to build those kinds of relationships in Dallas."
The Dallas theater's opening night will take place at 9:00pm on Saturday, February 3, 2018
. Regular show times will be Fridays and Saturdays at 9:00pm. Tickets are $25 each (including tax and ticket fees). The new theater is located just off historic Lower Greenville at 5106 Sears Street, Dallas, TX 75206 and is conveniently located across the street from the Truck Yard and next door to Trader Joe's.
