Just one day after announcing that it had been unceremoniously booted from its Chelsea Street location which it was counting on even more than usual to help it through its year of transition as it renovates its Rive Village location, Main Street Theater got some good news.
The theater has "reached an agreement with Talento Bilingue de Houston (TBH) to house Main Street Theater's entire season of Theater for Youth (TY) productions, September 2014 through May 2015," a message sent out from Main Street said.
The continued bad news is that MainStage productions will still have to drop from four to two and the theater still needs a place for its classes and camps.
According to Vivienne M. St. John, TY Producing Director, "The staff at TBH have been extraordinarily helpful in considering our calendar and production needs; the location is excellent; and the performance space is outstanding. We know our audiences will be happy to follow us to TBH."
"Main Street Theater is excited to be able to partner so closely with TBH," says Main Street Theater Executive Artistic Director Rebecca Greene Udden. "We look forward to getting to know each other more fully. There is great resourcefulness amongst the mid-sized and smaller arts groups in Houston. We are proud to be part of that community."
