Our audiences will be lucky to enjoy American classics both old and new throughout this incredible season, and have the joy of taking a wide array of theatrical journeys that will thrill and satisfy them throughout the year," said Sheldon Epps, Artistic Advisor for Theatre Under The Stars.
“TUTS is beyond thrilled to be able to offer HAMILTON to some of our most loyal supporters – our subscribers – as part of an already unique and diverse mix of programming in our 2017-2018 Season. Building upon the artistic and critical success of our 2016-2017 Season, we are confident we have productions and opportunities for engagement that will appeal to the entire Houston community," said Hillary Hart, Executive Director for Theatre Under The Stars.

Nick DeGruccio, who directed TUTS’ critically acclaimed production of IN THE HEIGHTS last September, will be putting a fresh spin on the classic musical GUYS + DOLLS.
Building upon the artistic acclaim of the of 2016-17 Season and reaffirming the commitment to bring “more theatre to more people”, Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) announced a dynamic 2017-18 Season; celebrating the powerfully prismatic impact of musical theatre.
Artistic Advisor, Sheldon Epps says, “I am very pleased that the current 2016-17 Season has been praised for a renewed level of theatrical excellence and artistry. The programming for next season will allow TUTS to continue in this direction with equally strong rewards for our audiences. The 2017-18 Season is an eclectic and hopefully satisfying mix which once again highlights admirable variety and valuable diversity. The lineup rightfully encompasses the best of reconsidered classics and the thrill of recently created musicals that surely will have enduring life."
