Field of Dreams

Field of Dreams
  This weekend, several members of the Austin Playhouse Acting Company took a field trip out to the Mueller Redevelopment to check out the building site for our new home. It was incredibly hot and the ground was crispy and cracked, but we were so excited to wander around the field!
Our Producing Artistic Director Don Toner and our architect Scott Ginder discuss the next steps in the building process.

Scott Ginder, Don Toner, Barry Miller and Benjamin Summers brave the heat for a picture in the field!  

Several other Acting Company members stayed in the shade by the children's park next to the building site.
The Mueller Town Center will be built right next to the beautiful Lake Park. Amazingly, a few areas of the park are still green!
The historic Browning Hangar was kept from the original Mueller Airport. It casts a lovely reflection into the lake!

After our tour we walked back to Mueller Central. In a few months we'll be able to look across the Lake to our Field of Dreams and see a brand new theatre coming up from that dry, cracked ground!
