The State Theatre Company creates and produces performances, presentations, workshops, and meetings to raise the bar for theatre professionalism in the Austin community by engaging the finest artists and technicians available, and by offering the highest production values and most thrilling theater experiences. The State Theatre Company was established in 1982 as Live Oak Productions and in 1994 the Company acquired the building next to The Paramount Theatre and merged with them in 2000.
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.
