DEAR FRIENDS, For over 50 years, Society for the Performing Arts (SPA) has been “bringing the world’s best to Houston!”, and amidst the turmoil Hurricane Harvey brought to the Theater District, our 2017 - 2018 season is still no exception. SPA is excited to return home to Jones Hall for the Performing Arts since our displacement due the catastrophic flooding. While SPA has been working with our artists to rebuild our season, we have been inspired by the strength of the Houston community to come together and lift each other’s spirits. Thus, with our return to Jones Hall, we aim to inspire the community as we get back to doing what we do best – bringing the world’s best artists to Houston. In this updated brochure you may find the changes for venues, dates and times of the 2017 - 2018 season performances. While we feel the burden of The Wortham Theater Center’s closure until May 2018, we are excited to bring performances of Feathers of Fire: A Persian Epic and Ballet Hispánico to the Cullen Performance Hall at University of Houston, and Piano Battle to Zilkha Hall at The Hobby Center. Bria Skonberg has now moved to Jones Hall and Penn & Teller, set to be our season opening night, will now bring a magical ending to the 2017 – 2018 season this June. While SPA is handling these changes in great strides, there is still an urgent need for community support to help get us through this difficult period. Please remember the best way to support SPA as your arts nonprofit of choice is to simply spend an evening enjoying a performance with us!

June Christensen, Chief Executive Officer/President
