The Country Playhouse first opened its doors in 1956. Founded at a time when that corner of Houston was still the "country" of its name, initial performances were held in community spaces - backyards and elementary schools. The next 25 years saw the little theatre that could travel from space to space - until three decades later, when the theatre took it's next evolutionary leap forward - both in venue and in name.  In 2015 Queensbury Theatre opened its doors - presenting  a first professional season on both the brand new Main Stage and Black Box, as well as introducing its new education wing, The Tribble School for the Performing Arts. Over the past 65 years - whether in a barn, a backyard, or a state of the art modern facility - the heart of the theatre has remained unchanged.  Built on the belief that art can make a lasting difference in the lives of every person it touches, and can be produced in quality and creative ways outside of the downtown district - Country Playhouse and Queensbury Theatre have strived to offer a home away from home to actors, musicians, dancers, educators, audiences, playwrights, designers, students, technicians, and volunteers alike.  As we head into the coming year, your support means more than it ever has.  During a time when so much of the world is change, art and community have never been more important.  The charitable donations you give - for Giving Tuesday, Year End Giving, the Pledge Campaign, the Annual Gala, and beyond -  each and every contribution truly makes all the difference in allowing us to keep our doors open, and to continue creating, connecting, and growing for the next 65 years to come!
