About Us

Our Approach

Points North is determined to bring quality theatre for audiences of all types and ages to The Woodlands area. With our origins going all the way back to 2000, we know what is needed to satisfy audiences and students alike.

Our Story

“Way back when,” we started out as UpStage Theatre and spent many years based in the Houston Heights area. Realizing that there was a need for a quality theatrical venue in The Woodlands area, we pulled up stakes and settled in to our new digs. Today, we bring you the best in children’s theatre, mature-audience entertainment, festivals, original productions, and theatrical education.
