“We’re thrilled to see Fort Worth’s oldest theatrical organization, Casa Mañana, expand with the new Reid Cabaret performance space. Casa Mañana is a staple in Fort Worth’s Cultural District and an anchor for our greater arts community. The City of Fort Worth is honored to play a role in Casa’s continued growth.”
– Mayor Betsy Price, City of Fort Worth
The new Reid Cabaret Theatre is 70-seat venue located within Casa Mañana with cabaret-style seating and a full bar. Wally Jones, President & Executive Producer describes the experience “like stumbling into the past, watching Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett or Liza Minnelli at your favorite club. With soothing earth tone walls, black and white photos, elegant seating and excellent sound, you won’t want to leave.” The venue also serves as a space for the exclusive Producers Club and for educational workshops and classes for Casa Mañana Studios.
The cabaret theatre is named for the family of longtime supporters Molly and Rusty Reid. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on January 10, 2018, with Casa Manana board members, supporters, council members, key city staff and the Honorable Betsy Price, Mayor of Fort Worth, in attendance. The Grand Opening, held February 8-10, 2018, with performances by Michael Cunio, was a sold-out success.
REID CABARET THEATRE FAQs
What should I wear? Here at Casa, we live by the phrase “come as you are.” All styles are welcome – whether you’re coming straight from work, you’re dressed up for date night or you’re out with friends for a night on the town – you’re going to fit in! Be mindful, however, the Reid Cabaret Theatre is close quarters, so don’t overdo it with your favorite floral musk and leave that 10-gallon hat at home.
When should I arrive? Doors open 30 minutes prior to show time. We recommend arriving early so you have time to order a drink and settle in to enjoy the show!
