Houston – Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) and the Houston Texans are excited to announce a performance of the national anthem by the TUTS Star Students Performance Troupe at the Houston Texans game on October 1st against the Tennessee Titans!
“We are so grateful for the opportunity to share our commitment to breaking down barriers to access and inclusivity with the esteemed Houston Texans. Performing the national anthem at the upcoming Kids’ Day game is a dream come true for all of our students and teachers. We could not be more proud of them, and are thrilled to have the opportunity to share their talents with our Houston community (and beyond)!” said Hillary Hart, Executive Director of Theatre Under The Stars.
The TUTS Star Students Performance Troupe is made up of a diverse selection of talented students from TUTS’ Humphreys School of Musical Theatre (HSMT) and The River Performing and Visual Arts Center (The River).
