Bayou Theater offers season tickets for 18 performances
Press Release
Thursday, June 14, 2018

Bayou TheaterHOUSTON, — With almost twice as many outstanding performances to offer Clear Lake theater-lovers this season than last, the Bayou Theater at University of Houston-Clear Lake is gearing up for a brand new season that covers almost all musical genres. “There are some great benefits we’re offering season package buyers this year,” said Bayou Theater Managing Director Alex Malone. Season tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 15.

The 2018-19 season features 18 shows with nationally and internationally known artists. “Trey McLaughlin and Sounds of Zamar will present a special performance of gospel music, and vocalist Graeme James, who’s on his first U.S. tour all the way from New Zealand, is making a stop here on our stage,” Malone said. “People will recognize Mandy Harvey from ‘America’s Got Talent’ and Alex Preston, a finalist on ‘American Idol.’ We are really becoming Clear Lake’s premier performing arts center.”

Malone said the season is grouped into four “unique and exciting series”: Mercury and More, Spotlight, Showstopper and Americana. “If you purchase a season ticket, you’ll have exclusive access to purchase tickets to the two very special shows that are not part of any series – Trey McLaughlin and Sounds of Zamar, and Rockapella,” Malone said. “These performances are included in the Premier Package, which includes tickets to all 18 shows for the lowest price.”

    Another benefit to buying a season ticket on June 15, said Malone, “is that you’ll get the best seats on your preferred night for ‘Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka,’ which is a full-scale musical that we’re producing collaboratively with Bay Area Houston Ballet & Theatre.”

Malone added season packages are going on sale now so that theater-goers can plan their schedules around the performances – even if a last-minute change is necessary. “You can swap the value of a ticket for another show if you need to,” he said. “A season package is the best way to go.”

Longtime Clear Lake favorite Mercury will return for a four-concert series, including a very special February presentation of “An Evening of Mozart Symphonies,” including the Jupiter symphony as well as classics from Vivaldi, Paganini and Tchaikovsky.

“An expanded season like this would not be possible without a wonderful sponsor like Opus Ocean Grille,” Malone said. “Their generosity enables the arts in Clear Lake to continue to thrive.”

The Bayou Theater is highlighting the holidays with two of the most exciting performances of the season. “Celebrate the holidays with family here at the theater,” Malone said. “We have Annie Moses Band, a Juilliard-trained group of six siblings playing the highest caliber of holiday bluegrass selections. And we’ve got Riders in the Sky, who have been together for 40 years playing music. They’re the Grammy Award winning group whose music you’ve heard watching ‘Toy Story 2’ or ‘Monsters, Inc.’ and they’re celebrating a special cowboy comedy holiday event on our stage.”

Single tickets go on sale Aug. 1.
