Happiness is creating a lantern with TAP at Art City Austin Fine Arts Festival. The lanterns were created for the Light/Holocaust project which concluded with a presentation on April 19 at the Dell Jewish Community Center. Theatre Action Project was one of many community partners collaboration on projects with Ballet Austin.

In April The Weinstin Company and Theatre Action Project presented a free screening of the documentary Bully by Lee Hirsch.  This shows the panel discussion and Q&A with Summor Elliott with Dr. Rebecca Bigler, Professor of Psychology, University of Texas, Mel Waxler, General Counsel with the Austin Independent School District and TAP staff and students. Join the conversation about the film and bullying by clicking here.
