Garland Civic Theatre

Audiences are loving STEEL MAGNOLIAS! You’re next chance to see this wonderful show is today at 2:30. So we wanted to add a few reminders before you come to the theatre.

1. Parking is difficult right now, the Dallas Ballet Company’s The Nutcracker is taking place in the large auditorium. So give yourself a little extra time, there is additional parking in the surrounding garages.

2. Our 2nd Annual food drive for the Good Samaritans of Garland. Bring grocery items to donate to our food drive and be entered into the raffle for Downtown Garland Business Bucks. From our friends at Downtown Garland, all to benefit the Good Samaritans of Garland - "Good Sam".
