Savor the melodic madness of Beetlejuice – The Musical from March 5 to 10 LIVE at the Hobby Center’s haunted Sarofim Hall! Adapted from Tim Burton’s cult classic of the same name, this delightfully devilish production is directed by 2x Tony Award winner Alex Timbers, following a book by Scott Brown and Anthony King and a supernatural score by Eddie Perfect. Set within the wailing walls of the Maitland residence, our tale revolves around one Lydia Deetz, played by Isabelle Esler, and her inadvertent trespassing into the land of the dead. Caught within the throes of her mother’s untimely demise and the cobweb of schemes of Beetlejuice, an enigmatic ghost played by Justin Colette, Lydia will have to confront her demons (both literal and metaphorical) if she hopes to see the light of day again. The musical’s inaugural North American tour heard your screams, and it’s taking its 2024 run to you in Houston. Get your tickets now!

Born from the demented dreams of Tim Burton, this phantasmal Broadway phenomenon was adapted from the eponymous 1988 horror comedy classic and shaped into a book by the deathly duo of Scott Brown and Anthony King. It is directed by two-time Tony Award winner Alex Timbers and scored by Helpmann Award-winning musician Eddie Perfect.
Do you believe in ghosts? A certain Lydia Deetz didn’t, but her new home didn’t spare a second throwing that skepticism out of its paneless windows.
After moving into the definitely-not-haunted Maitland residence with her father and his mistress, our unassuming hero will have to fend off the escalating assaults of the house’s freshly deceased owners and a stripe-suited ghost who’s got a knack for foul-mouthed tomfoolery. But with the recent death of her mother still weighing down her heart, Lydia will have to dig deep to defeat the demons around her and the ones that fester within.

Beetlejuice – The Musical first crawled out of the grave to haunt Washington D.C. for a tryout session in 2018, following development news and rumors that dated back two years prior. In 2019, the show set out for the big leagues, taking ovations and scaring audiences out of their skins at the Winter Garden Theatre in its official Broadway debut. This engagement ran for eleven months, from April to March of the following year, but was interrupted by the then-ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. After clawing its way back into the light, the production opened once again in April of 2022, subsequently completing its run in January of 2023.
