Dallas Summer Musicals, Inc. (DSM), is pleased to announce Texas Instruments (TI) executives and arts philanthropists Andy Smith and Paul von Wupperfeld as chairs of An Evening with Bernadette Peters, Dallas Summer Musicals 2017 Gala. The spectacular black-tie optional evening will feature renowned Broadway star Bernadette Peters at the Music Hall at Fair Park on Saturday, November 4, 2017.


An Evening with Bernadette Peters is a celebration of DSM and the magic of musical theatre – featuring one of Broadway’s most critically acclaimed performers. Proceeds from An Evening with Bernadette Peters support the non-profit Dallas Summer Musicals and its education and community outreach programs. DSM brings the beauty of musical theater to many through programs such as DSM High School Musical Theatre Awards, Seats for Vets, Seats for Kids, Kid’s Club, Hear Us Now!™, and DSM Community Performance.


“Dallas Summer Musicals has played a special role in both our lives. Paul attended DSM performances as a young child with his grandmother. My 16th birthday present was a trip from Tyler to see the DSM production of CAMELOT. We both fell in love with musical theater through DSM, and we’ve also seen how DSM has touched the lives of youth in our community through their outreach and education programs,” said Andy. “We couldn’t be more honored than to be asked to chair An Evening with Bernadette Peters, which will generate vitally needed funding for DSM and its community programs.”


“Going to Dallas Summer Musicals at Fair Park with my grandmother was my first exposure to ‘real’ theatre on the big stage. Learning the stories and hearing the music instilled a love for the stage in me that endures to this day. I am thrilled at the opportunity to help another generation experience that same magic,” said Paul.


DSM’s 2017 Gala will be a glamorous musical affair, and the public is invited to join in the excitement. Guests will enjoy an open bar cocktail reception followed by a crafted menu of culinary delights, as well as special experiences designed to engage attendees beyond the traditional dinner format. The event’s silent auction will consist of Broadway memorabilia and several surprises. The evening will culminate with a performance by renowned Broadway star Bernadette Peters accompanied by a live orchestra. This will be a wonderful opportunity to indulge in everything patrons love about Broadway and the DSM experience at the historic Music Hall at Fair Park.



“DSM is thrilled to have Andy and Paul as chairs of An Evening with Bernadette Peters,” said Ted R. Munselle, Chair of the Board of Dallas Summer Musicals. “We are lucky to have outstanding and dedicated leaders in our community like the two of them who understand the value of the performing arts and the importance of our programs, all of which impact the lives of thousands in our community, each and every year.”
