Each summer, the Paramount Academy for the Arts hires 20 talented high school students from the Travis County area. The students spend five weeks writing and rehearsing an original play to be performed at the end of the program.

This year’s production follows the theme of “100 Years,” celebrating the Paramount Theatre’s longtime contribution to Austin’s culture. The public is invited to enjoy the final product on Friday evening. Who knows – there may be a future star in our midst!

Details: 7 p.m. $6/person. The Paramount Theatre, 713 Congress Avenue. (512) 472-5470, austintheatre.org.
