AUSTIN ISD PRESENTS

Featuring students from across the district as actors, dancers, and tech crew, and directed by a team of AISD teachers, students get an exciting, hands-on theatre experience from script to stage. This year, students auditioned for roles in the main stage musical, Disney's NEWSIES, or for the traditional play, Disney's Shakespeare in Love, debuting in the Black Box Theatre.
