Art Factory Houston, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Founded in the Autumn of 2016 by Executive Director Luke J. Hamilton and Artistic Director Colton Berry,
Art Factory began in the East Downtown (EaDo) District of Houston, Texas, as EaDo Playhouse.
In January of 2018, Art Factory moved to our new home at The Docks, just north of Downtown Houston.
By 2022, Art Factory produced nearly fifty lauded productions, including Houston premieres like "Disenchanted!" and "GATSBY," theatrical live-music events like "It's Britney, B*tch" and "MONSTER: The Music of Lady Gaga," digital productions like "[title of show]" and "Pippin," and re-imagined classics like "Grease" and "The Wizard of Oz," making it Houston's highest producer of musical theatre.
Art Factory exists to broaden the experience of the Houston arts community by offering multifaceted programming, developing new and original works and exploring uncharted artistic perspectives of established plays and musicals.
Art Factory presents works of theatre in a purposefully intimate setting, reducing the divide between spectator and art in order to foster a connected and empathetic community in Houston.
Art Factory provides high quality art for patrons of all races, nationalities, sexual orientations, and gender identities by maintaining an inclusive and tolerant environment and reflecting the vast diversity of Houston within our productions and staff.
Art Factory offers Houston theatre-creators a unique outlet to develop their artistic expression through the development and production of new works and the reinvention of existing works.
Art Factory maintains a deliberately intimate space, to connect Houston theatre patrons to art in a fearless, face-to-face manner. Each moment spent in Art Factory immerses Houston theatre-goers in a full artistic experience and binds spectators to their humanity, allowing art to unite our community.
Art Factory holds firmly to the nostalgia and familiarity of established plays and musicals by maintaining their integrity, while creating inventive aesthetics for each work, allowing our patrons to re-discover the titles they love.
Art Factory productions give Houston theatergoers of all generations access to a brand new theatrical experience with the exclusive ability to witness the creation of Houston-helmed pieces of theatre as well as the development of pieces from across the globe that have not yet been presented in our area.
