Theatre Under the Stars

The Academytraining for the Broadway bound

The Humphreys School proudly celebrates over forty years of bringing top musical theatre training to Houston, along with the countless stars—from Pre-K to prime time—who have brightened our stages and our classrooms.

The Academy at HSMT was created to train career-minded students in the professional techniques of acting, singing and dancing. Those accepted and enrolled into the Academy will embark on a 24-week curriculum that includes Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced classes in Tap, Ballet/Jazz, Improvisation, Scene Study, Acting, Voice and Music Theory.

In addition to coursework, students will also be presented with opportunities to gain live stage experience, putting their skills to the test via end-of-year performances, community performances with the HSMT Performance Troupe, and three-day shows at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Our Academy enrollees are the only students eligible for placement in TUTS’ mainstage productions in Sarofim Hall.

Admissions to The Academy require an audition. For more information, call 713-558-8801 or send an email to
