In addition to the previously announced titles, Theatre Under The Stars is proud to announce HAMILTON as a “Special Engagement” rounding out the full 2017-18 Season by Special Arrangement with BBVA Compass Broadway at the Hobby Center!

"It is truly exciting to have the opportunity to offer HAMILTON to TUTS subscribers as part of the upcoming season. Certainly it will be the centerpiece of a season that is already rich in theatrical diversity, excitement and tremendous energy. Our audiences will be lucky to enjoy American classics both old and new throughout this incredible season, and have the joy of taking a wide array of theatrical journeys that will thrill and satisfy them throughout the year," said Sheldon Epps, Artistic Advisor for Theatre Under The Stars.

“TUTS is beyond thrilled to be able to offer HAMILTON to some of our most loyal supporters – our subscribers – as part of an already unique and diverse mix of programming in our 2017-2018 Season. Building upon the artistic and critical success of our 2016-2017 Season, we are confident we have productions and opportunities for engagement that will appeal to the entire Houston community," said Hillary Hart, Executive Director for Theatre Under The Stars.

As previously announced, the full 2017-18 Season that includes HAMILTON is only available through a six-show Season Subscription. Full six-show Season Subscriptions are ONLY available through Friday, March 31, 2017.

It is important to note that Season Subscriptions sold after March 31st will NOT include HAMILTON. Beginning on Saturday, April 1st, 2017 five-show Season Subscriptions and Pick Four packages will be available, but do NOT include the HAMILTON. The ONLY way to access tickets for the HAMILTON will be to purchase a full, six-show Season Subscription.

As previously announced, the 2017-18 Season will kick off in October with the Theatre Under The Stars presentation of The 5th Avenue Theatre and the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s production of THE SECRET GARDEN as part of the show’s road to Broadway.

This season will also mark the return of noteworthy directors to the TUTS stage. Linda Goodrich, who directed MARY POPPINS during the 2015-16 Season, will be directing SLEEPING BEAUTY AND HER WINTER KNIGHT in December. Nick DeGruccio, who directed TUTS’ critically acclaimed production of IN THE HEIGHTS last September, will be putting a fresh spin on the classic musical GUYS + DOLLS.

Building upon the artistic acclaim of the of 2016-17 Season and reaffirming the commitment to bring “more theatre to more people”, Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) announced a dynamic 2017-18 Season; celebrating the powerfully prismatic impact of musical theatre.

Artistic Advisor, Sheldon Epps says, “I am very pleased that the current 2016-17 Season has been praised for a renewed level of theatrical excellence and artistry. The programming for next season will allow TUTS to continue in this direction with equally strong rewards for our audiences. The 2017-18 Season is an eclectic and hopefully satisfying mix which once again highlights admirable variety and valuable diversity. The lineup rightfully encompasses the best of reconsidered classics and the thrill of recently created musicals that surely will have enduring life."
