Origins

Join WindSync as we explore origin stories with works by Reicha, Dvorak, and Ginastera.

The featured work, Antoine Reicha’s ebullient E-flat major quintet, represents the very beginning of classical music for the band’s five instruments. The second half of the program takes inspiration from childhood and folklore and showcases WindSync's ability to transform music originally written for piano, strings, and even a full orchestra. In each piece, we find a reflection of ourselves, pieces of our own stories and dreams for the future.

Pride & Prejudice Presented By 4th Wall Theatre Company

This holiday season brings the Houston premiere of one of America's most-produced playwrights, the talented Kate Hamill and her raucous adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice.

This holiday season brings the Houston premiere of one of America's most-produced playwrights, the talented Kate Hamill and her raucous adaptation of Jane Austen's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Hamill penned the Off-Broadway smash adaptation of SENSE AND SENSIBILITY that ran for nearly a year at BEDLAM Theatre in NYC to rave reviews. In PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, eight actors bring Austen's most famous literary classic to life in a rollicking, festive evening of pure theatricality.

The classic story is that of the outspoken Elizabeth Bennet, who faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth's intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof, self-involved, tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?

4th Wall’s production features a cast and crew full of Houston favorites, including actors Justin Doran, Philip Hayes, Philip Lehl, Leslie Lenert, Rachael Logue, Courtney Lomelo, Jeff McMorrough, and Amy Mire, alongside director Kim Tobin-Lehl, scenic designer Ryan McGettigan, lighting designer Christina Gianneli, sound designer Michael Mullins, costume designer Paige Wilson, properties designer Tina Montgomery, and choreographer Krissy Richmond.

4th Wall Theatre Company’s production of “Pride and Prejudice” is generously sponsored by The Liberty Group. It will run November 29 – December 22, 2018, at Studio 101, Spring Street Studios, 1824 Spring Street, Houston, TX 77007. Shows run at 7:30pm on Thursdays through Saturdays and at 3:00pm on Sundays. Tickets run from $17 to $53, with a Pay-What-You-Can performance Monday, December 17. There will be cast talkbacks following the Sunday matinees on December 9 and December 16. The play contains some adult language and themes.

Tickets are available on 4th Wall’s website, www.4thwalltheatreco.com.

First Suburb


Five preteens teeter on the brink of adolescence when a
shocking and violent act interrupts their insular world of personal struggles
and triumphs. Catastrophic favorite Chana Porter takes us back to the early
’90s in a suburban planned community, the first of its kind in America, for a
subversive, mischievous, and oh-so-familiar (or is it?) look at
childhood. The world premiere of FIRST SUBURB follows last season’s highly
lauded world premiere of Porter’s LEAP AND THE NET WILL APPEAR.
