Let's make a giant list of all the Austin troupes.

Post by hujhax »

It would be really useful for the wiki if I could make a giant list of all the Austin troupes, or as close to that as we can get. #quixotic

So: please post here with as many Austin troupes as you can think of. Past or present, sketch or improv, duos, revolving casts, what-have-you... all of them. All the Austin troupes.

I might not be too much help here cause the ones I'm involved in (or fans of) are the ones with pages already. I know you've been pinging Amy and Megan about TNM troupes; ColdTowne is second place among theaters with undocumented troupes.

Do you have access to the CT schedule? It's a goldmine of troupe names: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... _web#gid=1

The Walk Ons (defunct)
The silver knives are flashing in the tired old cafe. A ghost climbs on the table in a bridal negligee. She says "My body is the life; my body is the way." I raise my arm against it all and I catch the bride's bouquet.

Wasn't there a UT troupe called 90 Percent Effective, or something like that?
