Main Street Theater offers a lively year-round repertory of classic and contemporary plays for audiences of all ages. It houses a stage dedicated to the youth theater program and to large-scale MainStage classics and musicals.
Main Street Theater, the first of several theater companies established during the 1970s, was founded to meet two needs: to offer Houston theatergoers a more varied and challenging selection of plays and musicals and to provide a venue for training, employment and exposure for our city's professional theater artists. A company of artists has remained the driving force behind the theater's success, and over the past twenty years, hundreds of actors, directors and designers have found an artistic home at Main Street Theater.
