Neighbor? How long has it been since you boldly risked a performance of original live, groundbreaking, unconventional, intrepid, and impertinent theater?

Well, that’s too long.

If you don’t know us, the Ochre House is an intimate little 55-seat storefront theater in a 100-year-old building in Dallas’ Expo Park neighborhood near the main entrance to the Texas State Fairgrounds. We’re in our fifteenth season of critically acclaimed, audience celebrated, pioneering, unorthodox theater productions.

Unique in North Texas, every story, every script, and every musical number are hand-crafted under our roof by a core group of slightly deranged, but highly innovative artists. We consider it our mission to engage you, shock you, mystify you, make you feel, and make you think things you might never have thunk. Every show is a world premiere.

Our founder and Artistic Director, Matthew Posey, furthers a long career of writing, directing, producing, and acting for stage and screen. He’s appeared in some minor productions you may not be familiar with: No Country for Old Men, The Magnificent Seven, Mr. Brooks, Places in the Heart, Dallas (original and reboot), The Son, Lonesome Dove, Walker Texas Ranger. None of these will prepare you for the Ochre House experience. They’re a paycheck to enable his true love: totally original, experimental, unpredictable live theater with live music and the occasional puppet.

The Ochre House is an essential check box on your bucket list, whether you’re a live theater enthusiast, “underground Dallas” explorer, the idle bored seeking the undiscovered, or just a lover of good yarns and accompanying instant classic tunes.

Our next production, opening in February, will be another inspired tumult hewn by our own immensely talented and mystically sophisticated Justin Locklear, writer-director of Doom McCoy and the Death Nugget, Smile, Smile Again, and The Academic. It promises to be splendidly superlative, with bravura, daring, pathos, and comicalness, with some songs and maybe puppets.
