    Main Street Theater Theater for Youth presents Busytown, Adapted for the stage by Kevin Kling. From the book "What Do People Do All Day" by Richard Scarry. Lyrics by Kevin Kling and Michael Koerner. Directed by Meghan C. Hakes. Musical Direction by Adam Stout.  Weekend Family Performances Saturdays at 1pm and 4pm October 2 - 23, 2010 at MAIN STREET THEATER – CHELSEA MARKET, 4617 Montrose Blvd., Houston, TX 77006.

    Everyone has an important job to do in the hustle and bustle of Richard Scarry’s Busytown. Grocer Cat sells fresh food, Alfalfa and Pig run a farm, and Dr. Lion and his nurse make sure everyone is healthy. There will be lots of giggles and squeals as our youngest audience members meet the citizens of this imaginative world and learn what it means to be part of a community.

    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!
