About Bayou Theater

Bayou Theater was originally constructed in 1976 to be the primary performance venue for University of Houston-Clear Lake. It also served as the classroom and performance space for the university’s dance and theater programs.

In 1992, those performance programs ended, and Bayou Theater became a rental space utilized by the Clear Lake community.

In 2015, UHCL President William A. Staples recognized Bayou Theater as an under-utilized campus resource and started an initiative to revitalize the space. Since 2016, Bayou Theater has experienced a rebirth with a new mission and vision to be the leading performance arts space in Clear Lake.
