There are lots of great things going on in Houston’s Theater District soon. Starting tomorrow with Houston Grand Opera‘s Costume Sale! Need something for Halloween or the Renaissance Festival or just for playing dress up? HGO is having a HUGE Costume Sale tomorrow (Saturday, October 8th, noon to 4 PM). Stop by their warehouse at 1977 Tellepsen St. to find costumes, vintage clothing, shoes, and hats, plus all sorts of fabric and props!
On October 22nd, the Society for the Performing Arts hosts an Evening with David Sedaris as part of their 50th Anniversary season. Sedaris is a favorite speaker here in Houston. From the SPA website: With multiple bestsellers, Sedaris is beloved by audiences for his bizarre, candid takes on real life. On stage, Sedaris is as captivating, hilarious, and moving as he is on the page. Famous for his sarcastic take on Christmas traditions in The Santaland Diaries, Sedaris is a prolific writer who takes his new, never-before-heard work on the road with him to try out on audiences across the world. David Sedaris will return to Houston once again, reading works both classic and brand new. Tickets here.

The Houston Ballet‘s production this year will be new, different and extra special; it has been reimagined with new sets, costumes, designs and choreography by Artistic Director Stanton Welch.
