CASA MAÑANA


Bonnie & Clyde

Casa Mañana - Bonnie & Clyde

Performance: August 6th - August 8th, 2021

America's most notorious lovers and bank robbers take the country by storm in this compelling adventure. At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America's most renowned folk heroes and Texas law enforcement's worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless and alluring, the Tony-nominated Bonnie & Clyde is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country. This show is suitable for mature audiences.

 

CASA MAÑANA'S MISSION

Casa Mañana strives to create, nurture, and advance live professional theatre unparalleled in artistic excellence for the enrichment and education of our diverse community and its future generations of artists and patrons.

 


2018: CASA MAÑANA CELEBRATES 60 YEARS

Since its creation in 1958, Casa Mañana has grown into the largest performing arts organization in Tarrant County. Five visionaries have led Casa: Melvin O. Dacus, Clarence "Bud" Franks, Van Kaplan, Denton Yockey and, currently, Wally Jones. Twenty-eight men and women have led Casa's Board of Directors, along with hundreds of dedicated and generous volunteers who have given their time and energy serving beneath them.

After more than 55 years in operation, the Children's Playhouse, now called Children's Theatre, has more than 165,000 students and educators attend each year. The performing arts school, now called Casa Mañana Studios, is a nationally-recognized program, listed first in regional theatre training programs for young performers by backstage.com. Classes are held both year-round and during the summer with Camp Casa. The Betty Lynn Buckley Awards has expanded to include surrounding counties and more than tripled its participation. Education and Outreach programs include artists-in-residence and the critically-acclaimed Apprentice Program.

In 2016 plans were made to build new administrative offices and a permanent storage facility and to renovate the original lobby into a cabaret theatre. With the support of the City of Fort Worth and donors, renovations were completed in December 2017. The new Reid Cabaret Theatre is 70-seat venue with cabaret-style seating and a full bar, named for the family of longtime Casa supporters, Molly and Rusty Reid. The venue will also serve as an educational space for Casa Mañana Studios and a VIP donor area. The new 2100 square foot administrative offices and 1500 square foot storage facility were designed by Bennett, Benner Partners and contracted by Trelaine Mapp Source Building Group Inc.

As Casa heads into the next 60 years, the commitment has never been stronger to present the highest quality live theatre and live up to its namesake, "The House of Tomorrow."
