The holidays have never been so funny at Garland Civic Theatre!

Join Garland Civic Theatre for our 50th Anniversary Season! Garland Civic Theatre was founded in 1968 and is the oldest community theatre in Dallas County. To celebrate, we are producing a spectacular season of theatre filled with mystery, laughter, music, and love. Garland Civic Theatre is proud to present “In-Laws, Outlaws, and Other People (That Should Be Shot)” as we continue our thrilling 50th Anniversary Season.
It’s 6:00 pm and the Douglas family is busily preparing for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighborhood liquor store, high strung and irritable Tony, and his dim-witted side-kick Vinny, find themselves in need of a hide-out. A comic holiday treasure that is sure to leave you in stitches while celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.
