ABOUT THIS THEATRE

Description
The mission of the Nancy Lee and Perry R.

Performing Arts Fort Worth, the non-profit organization that oversees management of the Hall, presents national touring Broadway product under the Broadway at the Bass supported by Sewell banner, as well as programming that includes Family Series at the Bass, and the BNSF Popular Entertainment Series.
