Get Some Laughs In This Weekend as an Award-Winning Comedy Comes to the MATCH Stage

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.
