Citing cost-cutting measures, Dallas Theater Center has cancelled its upcoming revival of Carnival, replacing it with Our Town. Carnival was to have run April 10-May 5, 2002 at the Arts Discrict Theatre.

Thorton Wilder's classic Our Town is a logical choice for a theatre seeking to save money with a set consisting mostly of a bare stage and some chairs. DTC's artistic director Ricahrd Hamburger will direct this turn-of-the-century look at simple lives in small town America.

The show replaced, Carnival, is the tale of French orphan Lili, who grows up among the puppets and players in a traveling carnival, learning to love from an angry, disabled puppeteer and a philandering performer named Marco the Magnificent. "Love Makes the World Go 'Round" was the big hit from the Bob Merrill-Michael Stewart score.

In Jan. 29, 2001, no less than Disney held a reading of Carnival with Broadway's Sarah Uriarte Berry, Lewis J. Stadlen, Peter Gallagher, Billy Zane, B. D. Wong and Michelle Pawk in the lead roles.

Tickets are $22-$62. For reservations, call (214) 522-8499. The Dallas Theatre Center is on the web at http://www.dallastheatercenter.org. — By Christine Ehren
