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.

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