  • HC Theatreworks Takes Home 5 Tommy Tune Awards

    The annual Tommy Tune Awards, on May 4, 2023, proved to be an unforgettable experience for the students of HC Theatreworks, who showcased their talents in a high-octane rendition of "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat." Their performance was met with resounding applause from fellow theater programs in the area, who lauded the school's professionalism, polish, joyfulness, and enthusiasm. In fact, one parent was so impressed by the turnout of supporters that they inquired if the entire school was present. Another school was taken aback by the abundance of talent among such a small school, exclaiming that HC Theatreworks "packed a punch." It was an honor for Houston Christian to be the only private school to make it to the Finalist for Outstanding Musical, placing among the top 7 theater performances in the greater Houston area. Such an achievement is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the students, staff, and supporters of HC Theatreworks.

  • HC Theatreworks presents Guys & Dolls

    Houston Christian High School Theatreworks is proud to present Guys and Dolls! Our Performing Arts department has been working all season tirelessly to produce an exceptional show. Below, you will find a musical description, show times, purchase ticket link, and promotional video. Tickets are on sale NOW! 

    Set in Depression-era Times Square, Guys and Dolls is about a couple of big-city gamblers and the women who love them. It tells the overlapping stories of high-roller Sky Masterson, who falls in love with mission worker Sarah Brown, and lovable rapscallion Nathan Detroit, engaged for 14 years to Miss Adelaide, a headliner at the Hot Box Club. Nathan runs a famous floating crap game, and an ongoing plot line involves his quest for a safe place for the game as Adelaide continues her quest to convince him to marry her. Meanwhile, Sarah, mistakenly believing that Sky set up an illegal game at the mission, tries to fight her affection for the charismatic crapshooter.
