    A Christmas Story at Unity Theatre

    A Comedy by Philip Grecian, based on the novel by Jean Shepherd Playing December 5 – December 22, 2019 Directed by Tom Prior Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the mid-west in the 1940’s follows 9 year old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralph pleads his case before his mother, his teacher, and even Santa Claus himself, at Higbee’s Department Store.

    The Houston Brass Band will perform on the Festival Concert Hall

    The Houston Brass Band was formed in 2000 by several brass music enthusiasts, inspired by the British film Brassed Off, and was a casual ensemble. In 2006 the HBB asked Robert Walp to coach the cornet section. Mr. Walp, Assistant Principal Trumpet of the Houston Symphony, worked with the cornets, then the entire ensemble. The group's enthusiasm led to Mr. Walp becoming that Band's first Music Director. Under Robert Walp's expert direction, the Houston Brass Band began a period of significant improvement, transforming it from a local community group to the professional-level organization you see and hear today.

    Daddy Long Legs

    A Romantic Musical Music and Lyrics by Paul Gordon and Book by John Caird February 13 – March 1, 2020 Directed by Andrew Ruthven Based on the novel (which inspired the 1955 movie starring Fred Astaire), Daddy Long Legs is a ‘rags to riches’ tale of newfound love. Jerusha Abbot is the ‘oldest orphan in the John Grier Home’ until a mysterious benefactor decides to send her to college to be educated as a writer. Required to write him a letter once a month, she can’t know his identity so she invents one for him: Daddy Long Legs. Although she knows that he will respond to her letters, she grows fonder of this elusive and kindly ‘old gentleman’ while another relationship begins to develop in her life. Jervis Pendleton introduces her to a world of literature, travel and adventure, but there is one startling fact that will change her life forever.
