ColdTowne Presents 'Austin Translation'


Austin Translation is the new mainstage show at ColdTowne Theater. Produced and directed by Second City alum Dave Buckman, the show was created using the Second City method; over the past couple of months, Austin Translation cast members brought in ideas, worked on them together through improvisation, and then chose the best of the best to craft into scripted sketches.

The theme of the show, as the title Austin Translation would imply, is our fair city and various quirks and foibles. You can expect sketches and songs about downsizing startups, worries about new residents, bullying, outgrowing your band, and other Austin-centric occurances. 

Austin Translation will be on stage at ColdTowne Theater April 30, May 9, 16, and 30, and at Spiderhouse Ball  Room on May 23.
