Country Playhouse, a local theater mainstay, is getting a facelift. The nonprofit is getting a new, 21,000 square foot facility in CityCentre near Memorial City. The facilities will open in early 2015 and will allow for some great new shows to be performed in the inaugural 2015-2016 season. To go along with this new facility, the company is changing its name to Queensbury Theatre, which reflects its location on Queensbury Lane.

"This is a transcendent moment for Country Playhouse,” said Bonnie Hewett, artistic director of Queensbury Theatre. “With the building of our new theater and the unveiling of our new name we are taking a giant and important step onto center stage of the Houston theatre scene.”

The group was formed in 1956 and performed all across Houston before settling down in the Memorial City area in the 1980s. Their new building, built on the same plot of land as the previous theater, will feature a main stage and a black box theater and will have seating for up to 250, box seating, and VIP areas to enhance the theater experience.
