The Noyes Fine Arts Foundation Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit community arts organization. Our mission is to bring quality community theatre, music, and fine arts education to the city of Katy, Texas.
In 2011 The Noyes Fine Arts Foundation started working towards building The Katy Grand Theatre, the first community performance center in Katy, TX. This 300 seat 13,000 sq. ft. performance center will be home to a community theatre, arts education classes, children's choir, and community symphony. The educational programs will feature a variety of classes including acting, opera, instrumentals, musical theatre, lighting and sound, Broadway singing, and dance. This new community performance center will be designed by an architect here in Houston, and will feature amenities found in many professional theatres, allowing us to produce thrilling, high quality, family friendly, live entertainment.
The Noyes Fine Arts Foundation has made great strides in achieving its goal of building the The Katy Grand Theatre. We have received a commitment letter in the amount of $3,000,000 for guaranteed funding of this venue by the U.S. Government Community Facility Program. This is a major accomplishment and brings us very close to having the funds needed to break ground. The Noyes Fine Arts Foundation needs only to raise $400,000 more and with the help of the community, major donors and sponsors, we will be able to build this much needed cultural venue for the Katy community.
The foundation is also committed to bring artistic opportunity to the underprivileged and disenfranchised through its outreach literary program. We will offer scholarship programs for our performing arts classes and unique audition opportunities for our productions.
The producers, musical directors, choreographers, lighting, sound designers and business administrators have extensive experience in the performing arts and administration.
