COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Updates
The well-being of our patrons, cast members, crew members and team is our top priority. We’re committed to welcoming all into an inviting and safe environment for these upcoming performances planned at 100% capacity. Please rest assured, all decisions regarding the necessary protocols and policies for the health and safety of our audiences will be guided by medical and public health advice.
As conditions change, we may adjust protocols and guidelines. Up-to-date Hobby Center health and safety information can also be found at www.TheHobbyCenter.org/COVID.
Unfortunately, the continued effects of COVID-19 on the touring Broadway industry are making it necessary for us to reschedule Wicked. The new dates will be May 31 – July 2, 2023.
Current Wicked ticketholders have been automatically moved to summer 2023 to accommodate the new performance schedule. Please log in to your account to view your seating locations and performance date. Subscribers have the exclusive benefit of exchanging seats into another Wicked performance as needed.
The Hobby Center continues to consult with our health care advisor, Houston Methodist, in all decisions related to welcoming our valued patrons, staff, volunteers, cast and crew back to the theater. We are actively working on a plan to re-open following appropriate public health guidelines. Once this plan is finalized and approved, we will share it with you with plenty of time prior to your first show.
My Fair Lady is still currently scheduled to open the season September 14-19, 2021.
Not only were we able to reschedule all but two shows originally announced for the current season, but Hamilton is going to return to the Hobby Center next year, and we have added Disney’s Frozen and Fiddler on the Roof to the upcoming season!
