Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) is Houston’s acclaimed nonprofit musical theatre company with the mission to enrich the local community through the experience of quality musical theatre, and positively impact lives beyond the stage through innovative education and community outreach programs. TUTS was the first theatrical organization in Houston to offer free public performances when founded in 1968 at Hermann Park’s Miller Outdoor Theatre. They continue to be the only Houston arts organization to offer free performances to the public each year at Miller Outdoor Theatre.

Founded by Frank M. Young and currently under the direction of President and CEO John C. Breckenridge, TUTS has produced more than 300 musicals including many local, national and world premieres, such as Kopit and Yeston’s Phantom, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Jekyll & Hyde and Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, as well as critically acclaimed re-inventions of classics Cabaret and Les Miserables. Through its membership in the Independent Presenters Network, TUTS has helped bring Bombay Dreams, 9 to 5, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Spamalot, Legally Blonde, Ragtime, Curtains and The Color Purple to Broadway and ultimately, back to Houston audiences.

In support of the organization’s mission, TUTS Education programs provide instruction and stage experience for more than 21,000 students annually in a year-round schedule of classes. The Humphreys School of Musical Theatre (HSMT) offers technique-driven classes for all ability levels and ages, ranging from four to adult. Through a merger with The River Performing and Visual Arts Center (The River), TUTS provides an accessible and inclusive arts education for children of all abilities that enhance confidence and expand social and communication skills. TUTS Education provides extended on-site programming and off-site programming for children in schools, hospitals and other community-based sites. TUTS also annually presents the Tommy Tune Awards, honoring the best and brightest in Houston's high school musical theatre programs.
