    Main Street Theater’s Kids On Stage Fall 2010 Open House – Free and Open to All, Saturday, August 21, 2010. This fall’s open house is a special opportunity for grandparents and grandkids to enjoy our classes together!

    To kick off the 2010-2011 season, Main Street Theater’s Kids On Stage program welcomes kids and families to a fun-filled time at Chelsea Market — it’s our Fall Open House, which is FREE and open to the public. The Open House will take place on Saturday, August 21, from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm at Main Street Theater - Chelsea Market, 4617 Montrose Blvd.

    For the 5th anniversary of MST’s free open houses, Kids On Stage has something special planned: an opportunity for kids and their grandparents to enjoy activities together. Regular visitors will be familiar with our “mini-fair” format in which Kids On Stage teachers lead activities like mask-making, puppetry, dance games, costume dress-up, and improvisation.

    For this special occasion, Kids On Stage will be including some 20-minute activities specially designed for grandparents’ participation, led by Kids On Stage teacher and experienced grandma Marcy Bannor. (Of course parents, siblings and friends can participate as well!) The Kids On Stage Open House has become a tradition that showcases the program’s classes and projects for kids of all ages.

    For more information, call 713-524-9196 ext 104 or visit the website MainStreetTheater.com.

    About Kids On Stage
    Kids On Stage (KOS), now in its 22nd season, has been designed to spark a lifelong appreciation of theater by encouraging young people to participate in all aspects of play production, from movement and monologues to stagecraft and theater history. The curriculum teaches essential skills such as creative thinking, teamwork, self-confidence, and communication—skills that enhance the overall learning process. Through year-round KOS classes, outreach programs, and camps both on-site and at satellite locations, students are able to develop their voices, bodies, and imaginations through a challenging and fun curriculum, taught by talented instructors. Over the course of a year, KOS offers classes and camps both on-site and at various satellite locations in the greater Houston area.

    PARKING UPDATE AT CHELSEA MARKET (MAY 2014):

    As you may or may not be aware, Main Street Theater's Chelsea Market activities will move to the MATCH once it's built.  The MATCH is the Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston and will break ground on May 7, 2014.  We hope to be able to move out of Chelsea market into our new home at the MATCH in the fall of 2015.  There's more information on the MATCH here: http://www.matchouston.org/

    IN THE MEANTIME:
    You may have noticed that Chelsea Market has recently lost half its parking lot in a sale to a developer. In addition, our lease on that space has expired, BUT we are being allowed to stay through our 2015 season, providing we can find solutions to some of the parking problems our activities create. This affects all our programs: the showcases on Saturday mornings, our schoolday performances, and our weekend family matinees.  We are very grateful to be able to stay at Chelsea until the MATCH is ready.  

    We want to do everything we can to help our fellow tenants and our landlord, so:

    • For SATURDAY PERFORMANCES, we have received permission from the Joy School across Chelsea Blvd. to use their parking lot.  If it is convenient for you, please check this lot first for parking and walk across the courtyard to the theater. 
    • There's also quite a bit of on-street parking on Chelsea Blvd.     

     We hope this will also make it easier for YOU as you won't have to deal with the stress of a full Chelsea Market parking lot!
