Reserve Your Seats
for High School Musical!
In the TUTS rehearsal halls today, you can hear dribbling and a drum line, as Humphreys School of Musical Theatre students rehearse for their upcoming performances of Disney’s High School Musical. For weeks they’ve been working out the choreography and vocals for the Miller Outdoor Theatre stage.
High School Musical will play three 11:00 AM performances on June 12-14 and two 8:15 PM performances on June 14-15. We expect more than 10,000 people to attend the shows – for some families, it is the only theatre they’re able to afford.
High School Musical is FREE to the public; but with a spectacular set, costumes, lights and a live band on stage, each performance costs more than $22,000 to create – that’s more than $110,000 for the week!
Today, we ask you to support TUTS and programs like our free shows at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Your donations make the musicals happen. Your gifts also support education programs that reach thousands of children of all abilities at schools, hospitals, community centers and social service agencies.
And if you donate today, you can see your contributions in action. For each gift of $50, we will set aside two reserved seats under the pavilion for one of the 8:15 PM performances on June 14 or 15.Click here to donate and reserve your seats!
Call Mary Beth Mosley at 713.558.2651 with any questions.
