Preston Hollow resident Dorsey Baskin, an accounting executive and civic leader, has been named chairman of the Dallas Summer Musicals board of directors for its 75th anniversary season this year.
Baskin is a longtime volunteer in the Dallas arts scene and has been a supporter of DSM, which is one of the oldest and largest nonprofit theater groups in the country. His accounting firm, Grant Thornton, counts the ballots for the annual High School Musical Theatre Awards Show.
“It is an honor to have the opportunity to lead this prestigious arts organization, especially during its 75th Anniversary in 2015,” Baskin said. “DSM belongs to the people of Dallas and we are here to safeguard it and make sure that it is passed along in good condition to the next generation.”
DSM currently is performing “Kinky Boots” at the Music Hall at Fair Park, with “The King and I” set to debut on March 20.
