Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside-down, however, when her boyfriend dumps her so he can start getting serious about his life and attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle uses her charm to get into Harvard Law. At school, she struggles with peers, professors, and Warner Huntington. With the help of Paulette and Emmett, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments.
Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend--almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream.

Support the Stratford Playhouse!
Opportunities abound for you to support the nationally renowned Stratford Playhouse with your financial donations. Please take a moment to look at the various avenues available to help ensure that Stratford Playhouse remains the "Award Winning" high school theatre in Houston, TX.
- Tim Driscoll Scholarship Fund: Named for the Stratford Playhouse's founder, scholarships are awarded to Stratford performing arts students for such things as voice and dance lessons, summer camps, and many other worthy projects. The scholarship committee bases its awards on merit, necessity, and program benefit. Donations to this fund show your support for the students' continued study and performance in the arts.
- Sponsor A Seat Fund: With three different giving levels ($250, $100, or $50), this fund is a great way to leave a permanent mark at Stratford. Honor a student, former student, favorite teacher, cast or crew member, musician, Spartanaire, athlete, cheerleader, or the memory of a loved one. The possibilities are endless. A brushed gold name plate will be permanently affixed to a chair back in the auditorium with your inscription.
- 2012-2013 Operating Fund: Money that is donated to this fund is used in the production of the current season's musical and plays. 98% of our budget comes from ticket sales and fundraising.
