Donate Today &
Give A Child The World

TUTS can bring new musicals like Lizzie and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert to Houston thanks to the generous support of our donors. But your gifts also make it possible for thousands of children to experience the benefits of a musical theatre education – engaging boys and girls who couldn’t afford to participate otherwise.

Just this week, we learned that one of our community partners lost funding for one of its major education programs, drastically cutting the number of kids they can serve. TUTS’ after school programs, offered free-of-charge because of our donors, are needed there more than ever. And they will continue, thanks to our family of contributors.

Donate today and know that your gift has an impact. One teacher told us this about her students’ experience at TUTS: “This experience was priceless. Not one of more than forty students had ever attended a musical. It motivated them to read and travel the world.”

The children and adults who participate in our programs receive so much more than a free ticket or an interesting class – they are excited and inspired and educated. You can give more people that gifttoday.

Make your gift online at or call us at 713-558-2651 to find out how you can help.
