A NOTE ABOUT PARKING:
We’re aware of increased traffic due to the Austin City Limits Festival. Thanks to the Long Center, special parking is going to be opened up for our patrons.
Just drive into the circle drive and check with the security guard. They will let you into the surface parking area (the service yard) to the east of the Rollins theatre. No having to circle around for parking, no having to go into the garage!
And you will not have to pay the $10 that the city will be charging for garage parking due to ACL. Our special area will be the same $7 that it usually is for our patrons.
Playground Superhero is a terrific original new play that has a lot to say about bullying and being a hero in your own life. Hope to see you at the show!
