Half and Half Productions Austin TX

Passing Strange Half and Half Productions Austin TXHalf and Half Productions is a brand new theater company, but its artistic directors have been working in Austin for years. Before starting Half and Half, Julianna E. Wright and M. Scott Tatum studied together in college, taught together at the McCallum Fine Arts Academy, and worked together on a number of other theater projects in town. So the company may be new, but the partnership is a decade old.
For their debut as Half and Half, Wright and Tatum are staging Passing Strange, a comedy/drama rock musical by Stew. It’s a coming-of-age piece and a tale of the self-discovery of a young artists. With a live band and music that spans genres from soul to gospel to punk, the energy of the show is something like a rock show crossed with a stage play. The show will be staged at Half and Half at Highland Mall, a new black box style theater in what used to be a clothing store at Highland Mall.

At Half and Half at Highland Mall, 6001 Airport Blvd, Suite 1020
May 2 -12, Thursday – Saturday at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 6:00 p.m.
