What do we do?

Things are chang­ing, and we are excit­ed about the future. If you know some of our pro­grams, you may not know they are now under one umbrel­la. Over the sum­mer, we estab­lished a new Texas non­prof­it 501©3 called Impact Arts. Welcome to Impact Arts! 

Summer Stock Austin

Summer Stock Austin has become an annu­al tra­di­tion in Austin, where local high school stu­dents com­bined with col­lege stu­dents from all over the United States come togeth­er to train, per­form, and engage in all aspects of pro­duc­tion and per­for­mance in a fast-paced pro­fes­sion­al atmos­phere. With two ful­ly-staged musi­cal pro­duc­tions, typ­i­cal­ly one tra­di­tion­al and one con­tem­po­rary, along with an orig­i­nal musi­cal for fam­i­ly audi­ences, Summer Stock Austin is unique­ly a the­atre pro­duc­tion com­pa­ny and an edu­ca­tion­al train­ing pro­gram in one. There is no cost to par­tic­i­pate, and col­lege stu­dents are pro­vid­ed oppor­tu­ni­ties for stipends. 

In 2021, we part­nered with Texas Performing Arts with a live pro­duc­tion of Bring It On on the McCullough Stage and a pre­mière of our orig­i­nal movie Scout in Bass Concert Hall. Scout is play­ing the film fes­ti­val cir­cuit this year and we are cre­at­ing a dig­i­tal edu­ca­tion­al series to part­ner with the film for ele­men­tary and mid­dle school class­rooms around the country.

Texas Arts Project

Due to the COVID19 pan­dem­ic, Texas Arts Project was not held in 2021. We hope to return in Summer 2022 and expect to see you there. Learn more about the pro­gram here.

Audition Studio

We want to help you. We know prepar­ing for audi­tions can be stress­ful. We know prepar­ing for col­lege audi­tions can be over­whelm­ing. We can help you get ready for what­ev­er is com­ing up.

Our stu­dio is divid­ed into two types: College Auditions and General Auditions. 


We offer Private Lessons, Prescreen Packages, Camps, Workshops, Classes, and Mock Auditions.


We offer Private Lessons for ages nine and up. Are you audi­tion­ing for your school show, a com­mu­ni­ty the­atre pro­duc­tion, or a pro­fes­sion­al sea­son? We can help you get ready. 

Scholarship Program

We pro­vide schol­ar­ships and finan­cial to all of our tuition-based pro­grams, and par­tic­i­pa­tion in Summer Stock Austin is com­plete­ly tuition-free, mean­ing all par­tic­i­pants are inher­ent­ly on schol­ar­ships. These qual­i­ty pro­grams are not free to run, and any amount donat­ed is help­ing stu­dents, who would oth­er­wise not have these oppor­tu­ni­ties, move towards the next step in their journeys.
