About Rover Dramawerks

“Rover Dramawerks produces lost or forgotten works of well-known authors, revives excellent scripts that have suffered from lack of exposure, and discovers unknown gems of the stage.

“As the longest producing small professional theater company in Plano, we support a diverse group of artists and production talent in presenting theatre that engages the imagination. Founded by women, Rover Dramawerks is a response to the cultural needs of the community and is dedicated to its enrichment.

“We are a Plano-based theatre company, and our goal is to draw on the region for our audience base, artistic talent, and production staff. We work to develop a strong performing arts community in North Dallas by nurturing the large number of unfocused artists, performers, and unserved patrons of the arts in the area.”
