LOVE LETTERS is a touching play comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.

Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart. AVENUE Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life. April 2013

EDGES is not a traditional musical; it is an exciting new show about four burgeoning adults asking classic coming-of-age questions. Written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (2007 Jonathan Larson Award Recipients) in their sophomore year at the University of Michigan, the contemporary song cycle carries an honest voice advocating introspection while maintaining wit and charm. Confronting emotions, escaping expectations, and deciphering complicated relationships--the songs cover such universal issues as love, commitment, identity, and meaning. Join us and explore what happens when we are teetering on the edges! June 2013
In THE HOUSE OF YES we find Marty, a college student in New York, who decides to pay his family a visit in their ancient and imposing house in D.C. He makes two mistakes, one is bringing his fiancé, Lesly with him, and the other is coming at all. As soon as he gets home things begin to go wrong, and although the mother, Mrs. Pascal hides the kitchen knives, she isn't able to prevent disaster. It soon becomes clear that Marty and his sister, the unbalanced Jackie-O are just a little too affectionate towards each other, and everything untoward that could happen, does, in this unusual comedy.

FALSETTOS won Tony Awards for best book and musical score. It is the jaunty tale of Marvin who leaves his wife and young son to live with another man. His ex wife marries his psychiatrist, and Marvin ends up alone. Two years later, Marvin is reunited with his lover on the eve of his son's bar mitzvah, just as AIDS is beginning its insidious spread. "Exhilarating and heartbreaking.... "---The New York Times "A masterly feat of comic storytelling and ... visionary musical theater."---Variety October 2013

Our first annual Holiday variety show is sure to appeal to kids from one to ninety-two, while keeping things uniquely “Austin!” Featuring some of Austin’s favorite performers, THE AUSTIN HOLIDAY PROJECT will make you laugh, tap your toes, reminisce, and help your neighbors at the same time! A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to The Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. We will also be accepting canned and non-perishable food items so that we can help make the holidays a little better for those less fortunate in these challenging times. December 2013
