Sean K. Thompson

Welcome to UpStage Theatre… exceptional theatre for the Heart of Houston. Our first 13 years are under our belt now, and we eagerly look forward to presenting you with our exciting 14th season, starting this November. Our theme this year is “Screen On Stage”, which is represented by shows that have enjoyed success on screens both big and small.

Since taking the reins of UpStage last year, I have been honored to help shepherd the season to record numbers of audiences and ticket sales. The board of directors has worked extra hard to make improvements (many of them based on patron suggestions) and to bring you, the audience, the best productions possible. New actors, new directors and new patrons walked through our doors, and we were happy to usher them in and have them join our growing family.

UpStage is our home. The door is open. Why not come in and sit for a spell? Have we got some stories to show you…!
