It’s Showtime!

Today we wrap up our Summer Camp Programming with Songs for the Stage. This week has been a wonderful introduction to the world of musical theatre and todays show is sure to be a hit.

Although our Summer Camp Programing wraps up today, today is also the opening of TAP staff member Freddy Carnes’ show The Odyssey: A Rock Musical.

This is a new show based on Homer’s Epic Poem. The story of Odysseus’ journey from the Trojan War to his wife Penelope and son Telemachus is told through 15 new songs with a live Rock Band. A cast of eleven stays true to Homer’s characters while giving the story a modern score. The love story of Odysseus and Penelope is as timeless as Romeo and Juliet or Scarlett and Rhett.

The show is at 8:00pm at the Dougherty Arts Center 1110 Barton Springs Rd. There will even be a party in the lobby after the show!

Showing Aug. 13 – Sept. 4

Ticket price $15.00. Discount tickets available online. For phone reservations or more info call (512) 891-8387 or email Website:
