A Complex Play Regarding the Topics of Education and Class Takes the Stage at MATCH

A dream turned into a reality, Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston presents the arts in a way you’ve never experienced before. Now, Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston will present the award-winning comedy, Educating Rita, on January 27th.

Laurence Olivier Award winning comedy Educating Rita takes a poignant, deeply moving, and yet hilarious look at an intrepid twenty-six-year old hairdresser's quest for inner growth, culture, and education. As she enrolls for an open-university course taught by disillusioned Professor Frank, who is battling his own demons, they are both forced to confront their own class assumptions.

The play is a complex investigation of class and education. What does it take to pursue a dream? Could such a quest alienate your community and your own history? What do you have to sacrifice? Is it worth it? Through a delightful and inspired fusion of comedy and drama, playwright Willy Russel attempts to answer these questions while celebrating the possibilities of education and transformation.

Tickets are $15-$45 and can be purchased online through the official Midtown Arts and Theatre Center Houston or in-person at the box office.

Even though Hollow Tree Park Apartments Houston, Texas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
