Ever wondered what the scenery and costumes from your favorite ballets look like up close? Or maybe you have imagined standing on Wortham Theater Center stage, looking out into the seemingly endless rows of seats?

You have your chance to do just that (and much more!) from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 28 at the 18th Annual Theater District Open House. Houston’s nine major performing arts groups will open their doors throughout the Theater District and offer backstage tours, great deals on subscription packages, performances and other fun-filled activities.
