Et Voilà Théâtre is a French speaking troupe based in Houston whose purpose is to promote French language through theatrical expression.
Initially created in 1998 as part of Houston Accueil by Alain Bourgeois, EVT was officially launched as a separate association in December 2000. Since then, EVT has performed twenty-eight plays which have involved directors and actors of many nationalities, all sharing the common desire to speak our language. Some of these plays have been staged in cities other than Houston, like Dallas and Austin in Texas, and Lafayette in Louisiana.
Our plays are one of the main events of the French Cultures Festival organized in March by the French Consulate in Houston to celebrate Francophony.
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 surtitles during the plays, and by organizing art exhibits, bringing artists together from a variety of cultural perspectives.
In addition to plays and exhibitions, EVT proposes a workshop on Tuesdays from 8:00PM to 10:00PM. 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.
As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Et Voilà Théâtre relies on generous sponsors and donors to thrive. Your gift will help us bridge the 30% gap between ticket revenue and operating expenses. Please, consider support our troupe so we can continue to offer the best of French theater to the Houston Community.
