Mission Statement

Et Voilà Théâtre is a French speaking troupe based in Houston whose purpose is to promote French language and culture through theatrical expression.

Description

Initially created in 1998 as part of Houston Accueil, EVT was officially launched as a separate association in December 2000. Since then, EVT has performed twenty six plays which have involved directors and actors of many nationalities, all sharing the common desire to speak French. Some of these plays have been staged in cities other than Houston, like Dallas and Austin in Texas, and Lafayette in Louisiana.

Houston enjoys a broad cultural diversity. It is therefore natural that EVT has sought to build bridges with non-French speaking communities in the city by projecting English subtitles during the plays, and by organizing art exhibitions, bringing artists together from a variety of cultural perspectives.

In addition to plays and exhibitions, EVT proposes a weekly workshop. The purpose of the workshop, conducted in French, is to learn theater in a fun way with improvisations, composition and role playing in a supportive environment.
