Scroll down to see upcoming performances, shows, and events at the Ensemble Theater.
Founded by George Hawkins in 1976, the Ensemble Theatre aims to preserve African-American artistic expression, and enlighten, entertain, and enrich the diverse community of Houston.
A cultural institution, the Ensemble Theatre company is dedicated to portraying the African-American experience, producing six contemporary and classical works every season, from local and national playwrights and artists for over 60,000 annual visitors.
Ensemble Theatre features three stages, including the 125-seat arena stage, 200-seat main stage, and a performance hall with a capacity for 500 guests. No late seating or re-entry is permitted, due to the intimate nature of the performances. Food and drink are also not permitted, but Ensemble Theatre is well-located within a few blocks of popular restaurants and bars for pre- and post-show gatherings.
Parking & Getting There
Free parking is available on a first come-first serve basis at HCC Lots along Berry Street at Fannin and San Jacinto Streets.

Parking is also available in the Mid Main parking garage located across the street (entrance on Travis Street). Street parking in the area is very limited and prone to quickly fill up on performance nights.
