The first major production will be Dracula, slated for October 14 – 16, 2016. Next will bring The Nutcracker for two weekends in December. A spring performance, entitled Pasión, promises to be a crowd pleaser. Among other events will be the annual Breakfast with the Sugar Plum Fairy on November 19 at the South Shore Harbour Hotel & Resort, as well as a shortened version of last season’s Cinderella to be performed in area schools.
Other important dates to remember are The Nutcracker auditions on August 20, and the BAHBT Season Kick Off in early September. For more details, go to the Performances page and the Events page.
Bay Area Houston Ballet & Theatre Announces New Plans
Forty years into their history, the Bay Area Houston Ballet & Theatre is about to embark on another exciting chapter. It has been announced that the rehearsal space will be moved to a new location, while proudly keeping their performance home at the University of Houston at Clear Lake. The new space will provide an ample area for their professional dancers and BAHBT Company members to train and rehearse. In addition to office space, it will also accommodate their vast costume collection, along with a sewing room for design, construction, and fittings.
With the Clear Lake area continuing to grow south, the new location is just off of Hwy. 646, between Hwy. 3 and Hwy. 146 at 2350-D Dickinson Avenue in Dickinson and is currently under construction, with an estimated completion date of late July.
