See what past participants have to say about Summer Stock Austin!

My experience with Summer Stock Austin has given me hope, and allowed me to see that I have potential greater than what I ever imagined. I am happy to say that I am now studying musical theatre at the University of Oklahoma, where I was cast in Thoroughly Modern Millie as a freshman this year. I am excited to return to SSA this summer!

I have met some of the most amazing people in the world, and on top of that I got to work with those amazing people to create a story and a product that changes people’s lives when they come to see it and Summer Stock Austin has given me that opportunity over and over again. I am completing my second year as a musical theatre major at the University of Cincinnati, College – Conservatory of Music.

I have made so many great friends. Even as one of the youngest members of the company, I became best friends with some of the oldest. I was treated with the same respect no matter my age. Additionally, through SSA I have received an understanding of how much work goes into the “behind the scenes” of each production. I have a tremendous amount of appreciation and respect for those who specialize in the specific fields of production, since I’ve had to “play that role”. I’m thankful for the opportunities SSA has given me. I am currently attending Elon University as a Musical Theatre Major.
