Recent productions such as Tony Award winning “Red,” the controversial Pulitzer Prize winning “Disgraced,” David Harrower’s Olivier Award Winning “Blackbird,” and innovative and compelling dramatic pieces like Bess Wohl’s “Small Mouth Sounds” and Nick Payne’s “Constellations” have met with critical success. These and other HTG productions focus on the power of theatre to explore the particulars of the human condition and have raised issues from Islamophobia, racism, bipolar disorder, and how we choose to deal with disease and death to West Texas audiences. Many of HTG’s shows have had community panel discussions to allow the theatrical pieces to create awareness in audiences and increase interactivity. Former Lubbock Avalanche Journal Entertainment Editor William Kerns wrote that HTG has a “stellar reputation. It has introduced West Texas to a number of fascinating plays whose area debuts probably would have been long-delayed otherwise.” HTG is proud and humbled by this recognition and will always strive to be a productive player within a vibrant and growing Lubbock arts community and hopes to make an impact for many years to follow.
HUB THEATRE GROUP has been in operation since 2007 as a Texas non-profit theatre and since June 11, 2007 (effective date of exemption) as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Since that time we, among other things, have performed plays, sponsored summer camps and performances for children, and participated in community partnerships. With a continuing eye on the pitfalls of large operating budgets and with the hope of staying nimble and innovative, we have kept Hub Theatre Group a small, project by project organization. Our specialty has been the production of smaller, intimate award-winning plays. We are grateful for the past support of The Sybil B. Harrington Endowment for the Arts for our endeavors and are proud to be part of the family of arts organizations generously supported through grants from this organization. In all things, Hub Theatre Group maintains a strong focus on its responsibility to add to the artistic and educational landscape of the West Texas community.
