Performance Preludes

HEBThe H-E-B Performance Prelude series returns this season to celebrate young artists, art groups and art forms within the Houston community. Performance Preludes offer audience members pre-performance entertainment such as dance concerts, music recitals, drum circles and movement demonstrations. We have found that our audiences arrive to the theater early to enjoy the prelude performances as part of their SPA experience.
