It’s the 24th Annual TransCanada Theater District Open House! The Houston Theater District will celebrate its annual Open House event Sunday, August 27 from noon – 5 p.m.
An event that Houstonians look forward to at the beginning of each fall, this FREE, family-friendly event will take place in the heart of the Theater District at the Alley Theatre Production Center (500 Louisiana), Hobby Center for the Performing Arts (800 Bagby), Wortham Theater Center (501 Texas Ave.) and Jones Hall (615 Louisiana Ave.).
This favorite annual event marks the kick-off of the Fall performing arts season in Houston, and is a one-day-only opportunity to experience the energy and excitement of Houston’s Theater District…for FREE!
Theater District Open House is a fun-filled, family day of learning more about Houston’s nine major performing arts organizations, including the Alley Theatre, BBVA Broadway at the Hobby Center, Da Camera of Houston, Houston Ballet, Houston Grand Opera, Houston Symphony, Society for the Performing Arts, Theatre Under The Stars and Uniquely Houston.
Guests will enjoy activities and live performances by each of the Theater District’s groups, including musical theater shows, behind-the-scenes backstage tours, interactive instrument petting zoo, costume trunk, meet-and-greets with costumed performers, complimentary trolley rides between venues, a photo booth experience at the Wortham Theater Center and more.
More than two million people visit Houston’s Theater District annually. Houston is one of only five cities in the U.S. that boasts permanent professional resident companies in all of the major performing arts disciplines of opera, ballet, music and theater, and is the only city in America that has a collective Open House involving all of these groups and their multiple venues.
