Donate Today and Help Support Local Theater


Cone Man Running is grateful to have our own home in Spring Street Studios.  It allows us the opportunity to create more unique and interesting opportunities for the writers, directors, actors and designers in Houston's theatre community as well as across the world.


What else have we been up to?

For the past 12 years, Cone Man Running Productions has championed new works in Houston, created innovative theater experiences, and provided playful support of our community. Some of our highlights include:

  • 18 world and 6 regional premieres

  • awarded the 2017 Houston Press Mastermind Award

  • donated almost $14,000 and 3,000 canned goods to the Houston Food Bank through our semi-annual charity show Spontaneous Smattering

  • produced non-traditional theatrical events, like the Cone Man Capers, the Five Minute Mile short play festival and the Pass and Go staged reading series

  • produced an audioplay podcast - The War of the Words: An Audioplay Bracket Battle where we have already premiered more than 179 original short audioplays
