Nestled in the heart of downtown is a premier entertainment complex known as the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.
This magnificent center features two acoustically distinguished theaters, a three-story grand lobby, and sixty-foot high glass walls that overlook the city's skyline.
Patrons can enjoy an array of performances throughout the year including:
Potted Potter: An Unauthorized Harry Experience (through January 6)

Googoosh (January 12)
Faegheh Atashin, better known as Googoosh, is one of Iran's most enduring and infamous entertainers. She began performing at Tehran's bars and cafes at the age of three, and in 1968, she released her first single which became the highest selling record in Iranian history. Googoosh has since recorded dozens of other albums, and she travels the globe to perform at some of the most respected venues. Her repertoire includes "Jadeh," "Koeli," and "Age Bemooni."
Waitress (January 29 - February 3)
Waitress is a lively show featuring the music of Sara Bareilles. Called a "Little slice of heaven" by Entertainment Weekly, it tells the story of a waitress and pie maker trying to find her way out of her small town and unhappy marriage. Find out what happens when she enters a baking contest in a neighboring county and meets the town's new doctor who may give her a chance to start over.
