Pennies for Pocket Donations

A dream that started as a lively conversation between two friends, Joe Dickinson and Rodney Dobbs, over 40 years ago in a little sandwich shop on lower Greenville​ became reality and a cult fixture in Dallas/Fort Worth.  Since then, through many tough, yet amazing times (ah, the joys of the arts!), we have struggled through.  

The hand-picked season of shows celebrating various aspects of our history was planned but these were all derailed by the Covid 19 pandemic.  While the Pocket, like all the other theaters, was struggling to survive the pandemic, the shopping center that had been our home for more than 30 years was sold.  Just as things seemed to be getting somewhat back to normal we met with the new owners of the Mockingbird location and were informed that we do not fit their vision for the future of the shopping center and we needed to vacate our theatrical home of more than 30 years by the year's end.  Holy Humbug!! This past Christmas we presented  Ebenezer Scrooge for the 39th time in our history and as the final production at our current location.  The show was sold out EVERY performance by Thanksgiving, a record for us.

We have finally found a great location suitable to convert into a dinner theater, conveniently located for our customers, and financially sustainable.  Historic Downtown Carrollton, an awesome area with activities, shops, restaurants, and even a brewery!  But...no entertainment, we'll fit right in!

 Your generous extra pennies (non-tax deductible) will help us with the HUGE expense of the move and all the expenses associated, such as renting a warehouse, movers, lighting and sound techs, the rebuild, etc. etc. etc., helping to ensure there is still a Pocket Sandwich Theatre to enjoy.  We so appreciate any help towards accomplishing this. Stay tuned for updates!!

We will temporarily be officing at a warehouse/office in Carrollton with the following address:
Pocket Sandwich Theatre
1225 W. College Ave.
Suite 416
Carrollton, TX  75006
