The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts opened in 2002 to expand Houston’s reputation as a world-class cultural center by providing a premier performing arts venue, fostering accessibility to the performing arts and promoting arts education, with an emphasis on musical theatre. The campus houses two theaters including the 2,650-seat Sarofim Hall and the 500-seat Zilkha Hall. Delivering a best-in-class patron experience, the Hobby Center welcomes over 350,000 audience members annually to engage with high-quality arts programming including the Memorial Hermann Broadway at the Hobby Center series. The Hobby Center is also home to a full season of musical theatre produced by Principal Resident Company Theatre Under the Stars, as well as a variety of diverse performances from both Houston-based and touring artists and companies. Education and accessibility initiatives are central to the Hobby Center’s impact in Houston through programs like the Discovery Series that welcomes thousands of students to performances every season.
