Do you produce theatre within the Austin city limits? If so, we’re glad to add your company to this list in blue. Just email us.

Audiences outside Austin: We love the theatres on Austin's outskirts! Though they're not listed here, we encourage Central Texas audiences to explore them. Not sure if there's one near you? Our good partner, CTX Live Theatre, lists all the theatres in Central Texas alphabetically by town name!

Thank you to the fab photographers and actors and theatres who provide the photos for the slideshow in this website’s header.

2. This comic photo shows a Hispanic woman (Eva McQuade as Megan in Lady Macbeth & Her Pal, Megan produced by Shrewd Productions) with black curly hair and glasses, wearing jeans, a black t-shirt with Shakespeare's face on it, and a red hoodie, laying on her belly on a box looking at the camera with her hightop-clad foot up in the air. She does not look comfortable. There's a red book on the box next to her. Don't miss Eva's next show, believe it or not, Macbeth with The Archive Theatre in September. Photo credit: Errich Peterson

She is smiling while singing with her head tilted back slightly. She is holding her arms out to the sides and flexing her fingers. Photo credit: Steve Rogers
