The Hobby Center is a memorable venue where there isn't a bad seat! TUTS productions never fail to bring great theater experiences because of top notch actors, set design, music, food, and great welcoming climate to all patrons. Check their website and purchase season tickets or single tickets for a favorite show.

Seeing a production put on by TUTS is always a great time! They offer a wide variety of shows throughout the season, with a ton of great holiday favorites, and a series of shows performed by the underground TUTS group which are always entertaining! The actors are always engaging, but the sets tend to be minimal and the costumes a... More

We saw the "Million Dollar Quartet" last night maybe the only time Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis preofrmed together in history! It was a recreation of a private performance in the studio of Sun Records in Dec 1955. But we always go to the TUTS performances when we can. We have seen the Little Shop... More

This is the place to go for great theater production plays and VIP tickets. My wife and I have been to many shows here that are on the professional theater circuit and we have enjoyed the younger productions as well. The last show we saw was RENT performed by young adult theater students. VIP passes to The Grinch was really... More

We love TUTS musicals, from road shows to locally produced offerings. This year, TUTS Underground has been especially fun, with a young, modern vibe as it showcases the newest theatrical offerings. Regular shows may spotlight Mary Poppins and other old favorites, but Underground is edgy and unpredictable. Nice to have the new as well as the stuff to take grandchildren... More

TUTS is a fun place to see (mostly) locally produced musical theatre on a grand scale. Mary Poppins was great fun for six 2nd graders and the adults that accompanied them.

The quality of the performances and stagings brought to Houston by Theater Under the Stars cannot be overstated; it is simply the very best the country has to offer. If you can't see it on Broadway, then by all means see it in Houston courtesy of TUTS; you won't miss much, if anything.
