Developing a lifelong love of the arts

Our mission is to provide every child in Central Texas with the opportunity to share their dreams of being on stage and participate in theatre, with the aim of instilling a life-long appreciation of the arts.

By providing a safe, supportive space for social bonding and fostering the skills necessary to succeed in life including self-confidence, empathy, focus, teamwork and creative thinking to solve problems, it is our aim to help your children become their complete selves.


The Princess Holiday Ball

Come meet and take pictures with your favorite princesses! We’ll have a holiday tea party with treats, fun crafts to take home, and singing and dancing led by the princesses themselves! Plus, a special surprise visit from Santa!

A Christmas Carol

The beloved classic, A Christmas Carol tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge’s journey from an embittered, ungenerous creature into a giving, caring human being at the hands of three spirits, who, one Christmas Eve, show him what life means.  This richly textured play, adapted by Romulus Linney, brings the full spirit of the book, as well as those of Christmases Past, Present and Yet To Come, to life on the stage.

Elf Jr. The Musical

A title known the world over, Elf The Musical JR. is a must-produce holiday musical that can easily become an annual tradition for any theatre. Based on the cherished New Line Cinema hit, Elf JR. features songs by Tony Award-nominees, Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, with a book by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin.

The Central Texas Theatre Academy invites you to bring your children where, as our founder likes to say, “Dreams Come To Play”.
