Born in The Classroom
Live On Stage

Summer Break Theatre was formed in 2018 by a small group of Theatre educators with the goal to provide a creative outlet to teachers through the lens of performance. From here, ideas were developed to form a collective to foster creativity through events and performances for teachers.

 

Our mission:

Summer Break Theatre aims to engage in events that serve the overworked and under-resourced Austin area teaching community. Through productions and events that provide creative outlets and celebrate their work, SBT helps foster the mental health of teachers while raising funds that support them both inside and outside the classroom.


WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH SBT

    Giving Tuesday

          is Here! 

Sponsored by Austin Creative Alliance, Summer Break Theatre is proud to participate for the first time in Austin's Giving Tuesday on November 29th.

Below are some highlights of what we've done in 4 short years:

  • We were the first theatre company in Austin to feature our original play: Going the Distance (a play about teaching online, that was online) on a movie screen (Blue Starlite Drive-In) during 2020

  • We had a sold-out premiere of Teacher Confessions; allowing teachers to perform true stories from the frontlines of teaching. We raised money for $300+ in gift cards for teachers

  • Our first-annual Adult Prom raised money for a teacher’s medical bills. Thanks to the sponsorship of The Baker School, we will now be able to hold this prom every year for a selected recipient teacher in need.   

  • We have begun to build our service fund for the "Classroom grant" for teachers - all thanks to our grassroots supporters and you. But, because we are a new theatre company; we do not qualify for any City of Austin funding and we need support to grow.

However, due to the ongoing slash of City of Austin funding to the arts, SBT will not be able to receive any funding until at least 2024. We rely on our generous supporters and friends to grow
