A cornerstone of the Hobby Center Foundation’s mission is to foster accessibility to the performing arts and promote arts education. One way we fulfill this mission is through the Discovery Series, which has served Houston students for over a decade.

When a bus driver takes a break from the route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take the driver’s place – a pigeon! And you’ve never met one like this before! From the Caldecott Honor award-winning book, Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! The Musical! is sure to get everyone’s wings flapping with its innovative mix of songs, silliness, and feathers.

The Discovery Series is a dynamic arts education community partnership and a successful affiliation with regional school districts and local performing arts groups. It addresses an important need in local schools, providing an opportunity for teachers and students to experience arts outside of the classroom in a downtown Theater District venue.
All Discovery Series programs are offered entirely free of cost to participating schools and families. Sensory friendly performances are also offered in the series for children with sensory sensitivities and their families.
Previous performing arts partners include: Karen Stokes Dance, Musiqa, Hope Stone Dance, WindSync, Main Street Theatre, Houston Contemporary Dance Company, The Ensemble Theatre and Ars Lyrica Houston.

This is a good opportunity for our students to go to a place and a show where their families don't have the resources to take them.

The series is an important part of our fine arts program. It is a highly effective way to expose students to quality programming in all fine arts disciplines. I have been participating with the series for 15+ years.
