About Scott Thompson…

Scott Thompson co-found­ed and served as Artistic Director for Austin’s pro­fes­sion­al musi­cal the­atre com­pa­ny from 1996 – 2002. With Scott at the helm, Austin Musical Theatre (AMT) raised the bar for musi­cal the­atre in Austin. As the Director/​Choreographer for six­teen AMT musi­cals, fea­tur­ing Broadway guest artists along­side local Austin tal­ent, Scott gar­nered awards and acco­lades like Austin had nev­er seen. More impor­tant, though, was the train­ing pro­gram for future artists. The Austin Musical Theatre Performing Arts Academy paved the way for many young Austinites to per­form­ing careers from Broadway to Hollywood.

Scott has over 20 years teach­ing expe­ri­ence. Though cur­rent­ly resid­ing and teach­ing in New York City, he has worked nation­wide at uni­ver­si­ties, con­ser­va­to­ries, dance acad­e­mies, and sum­mer camps. Scott has guest lec­tured at NYU, California State College at Fullerton, Birmingham University, University of Arizona and the College of the Desert in Palm Springs, California. Scott Thompson has won numer­ous awards for direct­ing and chore­o­graph­ing some of Broadway’s bright­est tal­ents in over 100 pro­duc­tions nation­wide. Scott direct­ed Tony Award win­ner Betty Buckley in her first GYPSY, coun­try music leg­end Larry Gatlin in THE MUSIC MAN and Tony Award win­ner Cady Huffman in DAMN YANKEES. For the Library of Congress, he chore­o­graphed an all-star Gershwin Gala fea­tur­ing four-time Tony Award win­ner Audra McDonald, record­ing star Dawn Upshaw and Tony Award nom­i­nees Lara Teeter, David Garrison and Wanda Richert. For Princess Cruise Lines, Scott Created, Directed and Choreographed a mul­ti-mil­lion dol­lar pro­duc­tion show BROADWAY BALLROOM, which pre­miered on Princess Cruises new star ocean lin­er the Ruby Princess.

Scott Thompson cur­rent­ly teach­es musi­cal the­atre and tap dance at Steps on Broadway. He is simul­ta­ne­ous­ly work­ing on a New York work­shop pro­duc­tion of a BRAND new musi­cal called One For My Baby, which he co-wrote.
