TUTS’ Humphreys School of Musical Theatre (HSMT) was thrilled to present the Houston premiere of Xanadu live at The Hobby Center, Sept. 13 and 14. Thank you to everyone who attended – we hope to see you back at The Hobby Center in the near future!

Xanadu follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds. Rolling along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, Xanadu’s catchy score includes, “Magic”, “All Over The World”, “Suddenly”, “I’m Alive”, “Evil Woman, and “Xanadu”, to name a few.

The TUTS production of Xanadu is made possible by the generosity of The Cullen Trust for the Performing Arts, The Humphreys Foundation and the Immanuel & Helen B. Olshan Foundation.

Since its inception in 2003 this program of the Academy at The Humphreys School of Musical Theatre strives to bring Houston’s finest musical theatre talent ages 13-18 together once a year to rehearse and present a fully staged production. These students enhance their musical theatre training through their interactions with TUTS Artist Team, directors, choreographers and musical directors.
