Children love to gather around on the rugs in front of the stage to watch the action in the historic Austin Scottish Rite Theater, Austin’s oldest and theater. Going through a recent renovation, parents can relax in the newly re-upholstered seating under a historically restored starlit ceiling. It’s magical!
