The Holidays in Play – The Best Theater in West HoustonWe all have our go-to holiday movies and tv specials, but experiencing a live play truly brings the season to life. By huddling together in a West Houston theater, we honor community and local talent as the festivities unfold before our very eyes on stage. From timeless classics to fresh creative takes, the following shows are bouncing into town this month…
Houston Ballet’s The Nutcracker
Our hometown is a fantasy come to life, so this performance is perfectly suited to life in West Houston! Immerse yourself in a dreamland filled with toys, dance, and happiness personified as Clara tiptoes her way through the Wortham Center and straight into your heart. Thrill to the sounds of Tchaikovsky’s timeless score and recapture your youth, one leap at a time!
A Christmas Carol at Alley Theater
Haunt your holidays with a ghost story that has entertained audiences for centuries! This family favorite shimmers its way through December and enlightens fans anew right here in our hometown. Watch as Ebenezer Scrooge learns the true reason for the season and endures three spirited visits from specters of his past, present, and future. These are the ghosts with the most!
Christmas Is Comin’ Uptown
For a modern twist on the aforementioned Dickens classic, check out this soulful retelling at the Ensemble Theater. To thwart a Harlem landlord from evicting his tenants, three funky phantoms visit him on Christmas Eve to show him the error of his ways (and a few awesome dance moves to boot)!
A Charlie Brown Christmas Live on Stage
Groove with your beloved Peanuts pals in a theatrical adaptation of the enduring holiday classic. You know the songs by heart, but now you can rediscover their brilliance at The Grand Opera House, performed by a three-piece band on stage. Good grief, this is a great show!
The real star of the season is our vibrant community, so whichever show you enjoy, be sure to take a bow. You are a showstopper, and we give you a standing ovation, WeHou neighbor!
