Sponsor dinner and a show for a veteran and family on Tuesday, November 17 

               (November 11, 2015 – Dallas, TX)   Dallas Summer Musicals, Inc. (DSM) has a long-established tradition of providing discounted access to military veterans, active duty military, and their families.  The new DSM Seats for Vets initiative is an intentional effort to do more. The concept is built on the idea that “their service deserves great seats.” The Seats for Vets initiative honors and rewards their sacrifices with the magic of the musicals at the Music Hall at Fair Park – the kind that only DSM can provide.

            Thanks to sponsor and corporate partner Merrill Lynch, DSM has organized a special pre-show dinner event and program to honor military veterans and their families on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 and provide them with VIP seats to Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music, now showing at the Music Hall at Fair Park.

            This very special evening begins at 5:00 p.m. with a pre-show dinner event and program, followed by a pre-show salute from the DSM stage and the show.

            A limited number of tickets to the event are available to the public for $250 each. The cost includes dinner and a seat and will support Seats for Vets, a $5,000 scholarship fund for children and students from military families to enroll in the DSM Academy of Performing Arts programming, and future Seats for Vets events.

            For Dallas Summer Musicals it is important to have special nights each season to recognize these brave men, women, and children who make sacrifices every day to ensure our freedom. The goal is through programs such as Seats for Vets, everyone will come together as a community to honor and show appreciation to the United States military and their families.

            “DSM Seats for Vets is just a small token of DSM’s gratitude for the selfless sacrifices made by the men and women who have served or are currently serving in our military," says Michael Jenkins, President and Managing Director.  “We can never say thank you to our veterans enough. At DSM, we’ve always offered discounts to veterans whenever possible.  This year we wanted to try something new to honor and reward their service.”

            If you cannot join us, DSM asks you to consider making a gift to support DSM Seats for Vets.  A gift of $50 buys a Seat for a Vet to experience the magic of the Music Hall.

            In addition, DSM is offering military veterans and their families a 35% discount on tickets to Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music on Tuesday, November 17th; Wednesday, November 18th;  Thursday, November 19th and Friday, November 20thVeterans or family members interested in registering  to take advantage of this special discount, please call (214) 413-3911 or visit the website at
