Theatre Under the Stars


Theatre Under The Stars Community Engagement programming runs the spectrum of arts-based learning, challenging students and adults alike to discover their world through musical theatre. From in-school partnerships to community based experiences, we strive to create events and opportunities that reach beyond our walls to connect and grow with the people of Houston.


Theatre Under the Stars Community Engagement strives to provide challenging and enriching experiences for individuals across all communities by collaboratively exploring the art of musical theatre.

INSPIRING— We believe in the transformative power of musical theatre. Whether a student decides to work in the arts or to become a doctor, lawyer, engineer, or educator, we believe the creative and collaborative experiences they have through arts education can inspire confidence, innovation, and empathy.

INCLUSIVE—We believe in celebrating the individuality of all people through rich artistic and social experiences. Musical Theatre-based arts education allows for all involved to share differing perspectives and build connections across communities, backgrounds, and abilities.

ENRICHING— We believe learning is an eternal process, and in the creation of access to arts-based education we allow individuals of all learning styles to grow beyond barriers, preparing for life’s possibilities. By providing innovative, imaginative, and enlightening educational opportunities across all subject areas, TUTS guarantees the future of our art form, work force, and city.
