We're Opening the 2012-2013 Season!
We've successfully negotiated a deal to open our season in a temporary theatre we'll build at Highland Mall.
A few weeks ago, as we were faced with further site permitting delays for our new space at Mueller, we asked our subscribers if they would prefer to open the season in a temporary facility in January or if they would prefer to wait until late Spring to open in the new theatre. The response was overwhelming. 97% of the subscribers who responded voted in favor of opening as soon as possible. We listened to you.
We will open our season on December 13th. We'll announce performance dates and show titles for the first two plays of the season in an e-newsletter on Wednesday and Subscribers can begin making their reservations at that time. Subscription packets are being prepared as quickly as possible.
While Austin Community College has long-term plans to transform the location, right now it is still a functioning mall. All the big department stores are gone, but many of the national stores, the food court, and local stores are still operating. The Highland Mall location also comes with ample parking, plenty of restrooms, and great climate control!
We want to thank Austin Community College and the management at Highland Mall for facilitating an arrangement that will benefit Austin Playhouse and the Austin community.
