The Ensemble Theatre adapts to the nation’s new social distancing norms by launching The Ensemble Theatre BOLD Online Series: The Story Continues! with its opening video update from Artistic Director Eileen J. Morris, 12 PM, Monday, April 6, 2020, Facebook @TETMidtownHouston.
“This is a challenging time in the world,” says Morris. “We want to channel the collective creativity of our staff, artists, and leadership to connect with people especially in the midst of social distancing.”

Other major supporters include: City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance, The Brown Foundation, Cullen Trust for the Performing Arts, Chevron, Enbridge, Houston Endowment, ExxonMobil, The Humphreys Foundation, Shell, Spindletop, TDECU, Texas Commission on the Arts, and United Airlines.
