Performing Arts at the Nathaniel Center

The Nathaniel Center is home to a number of performance groups composed of artists based in the Kingwood and Northeast Houston area.

In the words of Allen Ginsberg, “Whoever controls the media – the images – controls the culture.”

Our popular media has been overrun with violence, and chaos.    In the face of that overwhelming tide, the mission of the Nathaniel Center and the focus of the Performing Arts program is to support true excellence in the art, to foster appreciation, and to provide family friendly entertainment for the Kingwood and North Houston community.

Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty – John Keats

Hosting theatre, dance and musical performances throughout the year, The Nathaniel Center has the feel of the old with its beautiful architecture yet offers the latest in state of the art sound, acoustics, professional stage lighting, and effects.

A full size stage with 27 riggings and battings includes a muslin drop syc, and video screen.  The facility also offers a platform that lowers to make an orchestra pit or raises to stage level meeting the diverse needs of music, theatre, and dance groups.

Every culture is defined by its artists.  David Dory

Without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future.
Albert Camus
