1. THE METHOD GUN OPENS TO SOLD OUT CROWD!
"Yup. It was a packed house at the Rollins last night, about half the crowd looking like a typical Rudes audience, about half not looking like they’d ever been to an East Austin warehouse theater. Which is good. No, it’s great." - Jeanne Claire van Ryzin (Austin American-Statesman)
Now through April 12, 2008 (shows every night but Monday!)
in the Rollins Studio Theater

The Off Center
Attendance is free. No reservation is required.
Arrive early, as seats fill quickly!
Participants in Grrl Action’s 2007-2008 year-round class present their long-term artistic projects in the form of a unique and engaging performance! A reception and project fair will follow.
For the past seven months, girls have been developing projects inspired by their interests and passions alongside professional female artists. They've taken their work in the summer workshop to the next level by creating multi-media solo performances, dance pieces, books of poetry, magazines, performance art, and documentary and narrative films. In GRRL WRAP, they'll share these projects in an innovative performance. Please stick around for food and a closer glimpse into these projects after the performance is over!
4. SPONSOR THE EVIL EYE BALL (AUGUST 23RD) OR DONATE TO THE SILENT AUCTION!!!
Local businesses, we invite you to participate as a Cash or In-Kind Sponsor for the event or as a Silent or Live Auction Donor. We are currently accepting donations. If you would like to contribute to the Silent or Live Auction, or to become a Cash or In-Kind Sponsor, please click here.
