Summer Stock Austin is a program of Impact Arts, a Texas 501c3 nonprofit. Since July 2005, college and high school students from across Texas meet to mount several productions with professionals from Austin and around the country in a one-of-a-kind experience. Similar programs charge high school students tuition—Summer Stock Austin not only offers the experience to all participants free of charge, but many of the college students receive a stipend and also work as mentors through the process. Summer Stock Austin presents high quality musical theatre productions each year for the Austin community with pride and passion.

High school and college students come together to train, perform and engage in all aspects of theatre and film production in a fast-paced professional atmosphere, tuition-free.

With fully-staged musical productions and original musicals for family audiences, Summer Stock Austin is uniquely a production company and an educational training program in one.

Program Overview 

There is no tuition fee for our participants who are selected solely on the basis of their demonstrated talent, promise, and character.

As part of a “stock” company, each one of our participants has the opportunity to perform, design, build, and assist with every aspect of our theatrical productions- all within the same season!

Our participants have the opportunity to work side-by-side with university faculty as well as theatre professionals from Austin and around the country. Our high school students get a taste of theatre at the college level, and our college students gain entry into the world of professional theatre.

To our knowledge, this is the only program of its kind in the United States.
