Theatre Under the Stars


Now more than ever it is important to support the arts in your community. Donate today to Theatre Under The Stars to help us continue to serve Houston.


Theatre Under The Stars has been a part of Houston for 52 years. When the time is right, we will provide a space for art and healing. We will tell stories that uplift and inspire. We will sing. We will dance. We will applaud as one. Together, we will experience the resilient power of community and shared experiences.

Over the past year alone, TUTS has employed 1,033 artists, stagehands, costumers, community teachers, musicians, photographers, designers, and administrative staff. Over 85% of these theatre professionals live right here in Houston.

The impact of the COVID-19 crisis represents a loss of $6M for the current fiscal year and a projected $11M loss next season. Your tax-deductible donation today allows us to plan for the future, so that the curtain can rise again.

During this unprecedented health crisis, we deeply appreciate your assistance. Please help support local artists and keep musical theatre alive in Houston.
