VIP Experience


Most Exclusive Program

The VIP Donor Program is our most exclusive program

The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts is a first-class entertainment venue managed and operated by the Hobby Center Foundation, formerly known as the Houston Music Hall Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.


Most people are unaware that this fabulous venue was built entirely from private funds donated by the community of Houston. The venue operates independently of any municipal operating subsidy.

The Hobby Center Foundation is able to bring first-class entertainment and cultural enjoyment to Houstonians because of the ongoing generosity of many individuals, corporations and foundations. By donating to the Hobby Center, you can enjoy the exclusive access and benefits from the VIP Donor Program.

VIP Donors enjoy:
  • On-site benefits, including complimentary valet parking with preferred delivery, complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in Artista at intermission, and the right to purchase premium location seats for many other shows at the Hobby Center.
  • Special Broadway Adventure travel opportunities, including the chance to attend the Tony Awards®.
  • Orchestra seating to our Gexa Energy Broadway series.
