Theatre Under the Stars

TUTS Texas All-State Musical is a special event which brings together like-minded, talented students from all over Texas to celebrate theatre in a fully produced stage musical produced by Theatre Under The Stars.  The Texas All-State Musical is a unique experience for students; it is not to replace what a student does at their home schools. It is an opportunity to create theatre at a statewide level with top musical theatre talent across the state.  It is sponsored, produced, and programmed by Theatre Under The Stars.

Les Misérables is the world’s longest running musical – a true modern classic based on Victor Hugo’s novel and featuring one of the most memorable scores of all time. With Countless awards to its name, Les Misérables is as groundbreaking today as it was when it first premiered in London in 1985
