The Paladin Theatre Company was formed as an experiment, in the belief that the following are true:
(1.) Theatre can be accessible without appealing to the lowest common denominator.
(2.) There is a goldmine of 20th century American plays lying fallow at present which the public deserves to see.
(3.) Plays about Texas needn’t take place in trailer parks or beauty parlors. Texas plays needn’t have lead characters named Earl and Mavis. Nor should Texas plays purport as true regional language
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
