Posted on Mar 30, 2023 by DART Daily

College basketball is one of the main attractions this weekend as Dallas hosts the NCAA Women’s Basketball Final Four and all its festivities. If college basketball isn’t your thing, there’s also live music, live theater, an arts festival, and a marathon – all at DARTable locations.

Thursday, March 30-Sunday, April 2

NCAA Women’s Basketball Final Four games happen at American Airlines Center Friday through Sunday. Watch the semifinal games for Division I, and the championship games for Divisions I, II, and III.

DART is adding light rail service Friday, March 31 through Sunday, April 2. Green and Orange line trains, which provide service to DART’s Victory Station and the American Airlines Center (AAC), will each have an additional car to provide space for additional passengers.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo has performed for audiences all over the world for nearly 60 years. The South African choral group came to Americans’ attention in 1987, when it was featured on Paul Simon’s Graceland album. Tonight, the musicians, whom Nelson Mandela called “South Africa’s cultural ambassadors to the world,” perform at the Meyerson Symphony Center. The performance hall is a short walk from Pearl/Arts District Station on all four DART Rail lines or the M-Line Trolley.

Friday, March 31

Captain Phantasm vs The Nefarious Dr. Noir is one of Pocket Sandwich Theatre’s popular popcorn-tossing melodramas. Inspired by the radio serials of the 1940s, the fun evening of theater features a classic hero-and-villain setup, as you might expect judging by the title. The play opens tonight and runs through May 13. Pocket Sandwich Theater is now located in Historic Downtown Carrollton and is a short walk from the Green Line’s Downtown Carrollton Station.

DRUMLine Live embodies the marching band experience with riveting rhythms, bold beats, and high-octane energy. Catchy it at Strauss Square in the Dallas Arts District – walkable from Pearl/Arts District Station on all four DART Rail lines, or the M-Line Trolley.

Friday, March 31-Saturday, April 1
