Family Performing Arts Series

Our NEW Family Performing Arts Series will create opportunities for families with elementary-aged children to experience Jewish and Israeli arts and culture together.

Join us throughout the year for these music concerts, theatre shows, author programs and other events with your children or grandchildren. The Series will give insider access to meet the artists and have other backstage experiences. Pick one event during the year, or sign up for the full series, which includes tickets to JCCS shows.

Story Pirates was founded in 2004 to celebrate the words and ideas of kids. They now have a hit radio show, the #1 podcast for kids and families, a live tour which performs from coast to coast, and a critically acclaimed middle-grade book series from Random House. Story Pirates will collect written works from children in the Houston community and perform these stories on stage – with music, costumes and sets.
