DAYBOYNIGHTGIRL DA! Theatre Collective Austin TXDA! Theatre Collective is proud to announce that we will soon be making our Long Center debut with our latest original show! For one action-packed week in June at the Rollins Theatre, we will showcase the talents of our entire team (plus several incredible guest artists) for the full-length premiere of DAYBOYNIGHTGIRL.

DAYBOYNIGHTGIRL is DA!'s original full-team collaborative adaptation based on The Romance of Photogen and Nycteris, a magical tale written by Scottish fantasy maestro George MacDonald in 1882. The multidisciplinary work features choreography by Lisa del Rosarion, a script by Kirk German, and an original score by special guest collaborator Catherine Davis. Heather Huggins directs this beautiful story of two children who try to break free from the experiment of a mysterious sorcerer.
