Recently nominated for two B. Iden Payne Awards, the Austin Actors' Studio is a new, professional theatre company bringing high-quality productions to the Austin area. We are currently entering our second season.
"The Austin Actors' Studio seeks to engage, inspire and entertain audiences by offering opportunities for young actors to work with adult professionals to produce quality theatre in an educational setting. Our mission is to enable students to gain discipline, knowledge, and experience by observing, interacting and learning from adult actors both on and off stage and for all actors to explore the endless facets and various themes of the human condition by producing existing and original collaborative theatre." -Milton Zoth, Founder and Artistic Director
We are raising money to fund more high-quality theatrical projects for this season. The money will be used for these projects that create such great opportunities for young actors and adult professionals alike.
Any contribution is appreciated. If you do donate, we will be notified and be able to receive free tickets to upcoming Austin Actors' Studio shows!
Testimonies from Austin Actors' Studio Actors:
"Acting with Austin Actors' Studio was a wonderful experience and one I was very proud of. Working with an organization that provides opportunities for young artists in a creative, nurturing and professional environment was inspiring. To have an artistic director that leads a company entirely dedicated to encouraging and supporting the future generations of theatrical talent is truly special. I was thrilled to be a part of its inaugural season and I look forward to seeing great things from them for years to come."
-Chris Tarravarant Professional Actor Austin, TX
"Austin Actors' Studio has one of the best artistic visions I have ever seen. As a college theatre student, getting to work with professional actors and people working in the field was such an unmatched experience. These older actors pushed me to be better and taught me so much. After the process, I had gained so much knowledge from their expertise and had them as professional connections. I am eternally grateful to Austin Actors' Studio for exposing me to incredible plays, and such great people."
-Christian Erben College Theatre Student, Southwestern University Georgetown, TX
"As a professional adult actor, I had some reservations about working with teenagers in a show. However, my fears about these teenagers were quickly dispelled. They were a joy to be around and so talented. The multi-generational approach worked beautifully on and off stage. Everyone learned from and supported each other."
