As each October for the past 20 years the Dallas Children's Theater Cabaret Gala is the performing arts fund raiser of the Metro Plex. I have attended several and last years, Carole J. Bufford’s performance has to go down as one of the all-time favorites, for virtuoso singing and communicating the fun and folly of life to an appreciate audience. The Gala is traditionally held in the historic cabaret Venetian Room of the Dallas Fairmont Hotel. The cozy room and intimate stage is perfect for performers who love the contact they can have with the audience.

Who will be this October’s guest star?
Hold your breath, it may be announced soon, as the champagne and dessert evening is always a sellout. If you can’t wait until October to get your theater fix, you can support the Dallas Children’s Theater with the many shows for youth of all ages.
