First Saturday tours of Dallas Arts District

DALLAS -- The AT&T Performing Arts Center announced today that free tours of the
Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House and Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre will be
offered during the Dallas Arts District’s First Saturday events.

“The tours will give visitors an exclusive look at the history of the Center, its unique
venues, and a behind-the-curtain look into what goes on here,” said Doug Curtis,
President and CEO of the AT&T PAC.

The Center’s tours are an opportunity to learn more about the Center’s world-renowned
venues, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects, and will complement the
architecture walking tour currently offered by the Dallas Center for Architecture on First
Saturdays.

“First Saturdays are a chance for everyone to have free, special access to the Dallas Arts
District,” said Catherine Cuellar, Executive Director of Dallas Arts District. “But until
now they’ve been mostly focused on the visual arts, west of Pearl Street. So we’re thrilled
to have the AT&T Performing Arts Center on board.”

The inaugural First Saturday tour will be September 7. Tours last approximately 45
minutes and begin on each half hour from 10:00 a.m. to noon in the lobby of the
Winspear Opera House.

Pearl Cup Coffee will be open in the new Information Center, and food trucks will be
present throughout Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park. The Center also offers
shaded café tables and chairs, free AT&T Wi-Fi, and Ping-Pong and foosball tables.

No reservations are required for the tours, which are conducted by trained and
experienced docents and recommended for participants eight years of age or older.
