The Hobby Center
12/6-12/19/2013
Elf - The Musical is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. Buddy is raised unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and his step-brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. Coming to Houston after two huge seasons on Broadway, this musical delight is joyous fun for the whole family!

Theatre Under the Stars

50 Shades! The Musical is the original Fifty Shades of Grey parody. Based on the bestselling novel by E.L. James, this musical tells a sexy, hilarious story brimming with wrestling singlets, handcuffs, and helicopters with silly names. Through the interpretation of the novel, by a ladies' book club, the audience is led on an uproarious roller coaster ride filled with dance numbers and original songs delivered by an outrageous cast and onstage band. 50 Shades! has played to sold out audiences nationwide and those who have experienced the "BDSM" (Best Damn Songs and Music) that make up this show will agree it is fifty shades of fun for everyone from book club junkies and next door neighbors to closet goddesses and the men who love them. Anyone who's ever heard of the book will relish in the clever comedy and outrageously unrestricted sensuality that is 50 Shades! the Musical.
