Ghost Lights:
A Quest into the Paranormal!

The doors of Austin’s oldest historic theater are opening to the public for the first time, to host paranormal investigations. Rumors of ghost sightings, sounds, smells and the unexplainable movement of objects have been reported since the building was built as a German Opera House 153-years-ago in 1871.

This is an exclusive partnership with the nationally renowned Austin Ghost Tours and Austin Scottish Rite Theater. The theater is located in what was once called Old Germantown, it is an area steeped in legend and lore including the serial killings of 1885. Find out more and join us on this remarkable quest!

The Rainbow Fish Musical

With shiny, multi-colored scales, Rainbow Fish is the most beautiful fish in all of the ocean, and the only one of his (or her!)  kind.  When Rainbow Fish refuses to share his vibrant, shimmering scales, the whole ocean seems to turn against the vain creature.  Unhappy that no one adores him anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus, who helps him learn that it’s far better to be admired for being kind than for being beautiful.

With a bubbly, energetic score and a script that invites wonderful creativity and flexibility, the universal message at the heart of this delightful musical becomes much more than just a simple children’s story.

Adapted from the book by Marcus Pfister, translated into English by J.  Alison James, with illustrations by Marcus Pfister.

Paquito y Abuelito

On the Day of the Dead, families gather to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have passed on. For Paquito it’s just another boring day and he would rather play video games than set up a Dia de los muertos altar for his departed grandfather. That is until Paquito’s grandfather, his Abuelito, appears and takes Paquito on the greatest adventure of his life.
