The future of Austin Playhouse

The professional acting company and leadership behind Austin Playhouse is building a new, permanent home—a larger, sustainable theatre in the Mueller Town Center. This facility, designed by Dick Clark Architecture, will be an exciting and important addition to the city’s thriving cultural scene, allowing Austin Playhouse to reach an even greater number of theatre-goers in the years ahead.

What we need

As in everything we do, nothing is possible without the support of the greater Austin community we serve. The total cost for land, parking, design, and construction is $4 million. Approximately $1.5 million of this project will be funded through a low-interest mortgage loan. Another $950,000 has been fundraised thus far. We either need to find a guarantor to borrow an additional $1 million from the bank, or we need to raise an additional $1 million in donations and pledges so that we can start building immediately.

if you and/or others are interested in acting as a guarantor, please contact us directly at

No amount is too small and several naming opportunities are still available. If you want to have a direct impact on the future of Austin Playhouse, please consider making a tax-deductable donation today, and join us in Building a Dream!
