About Us

About DAT: As a non-profit organization, Deaf Austin Theatre’s purpose is to enrich, inspire, educate, create and entertain the Austin community by using American Sign Language (ASL) within all of our theatrical productions that range from classics to new works. We strive to impact our community, our audience members, and to create an accessible stage for all future artists.

We are a Deaf and queer ran organization, ran by a group of like minded people who aim at providing performance opportunities for Deaf and hard of hearing ASL users, as well as hearing actors, interpreters and Deaf theatrical artists.

DAT Mission Statement: Deaf Austin Theatre creates memorable theatrical experiences through American Sign Language that enrich and mesmerize the Austin community.

DAT Vision Statement: Deaf Austin Theatre strives to create a world where theatre is accessible to everyone.

Community
We strive to build partnerships to support our industry, our artists, our audiences, and our communities.

We believe that theatre should be accessible to everyone, regardless of your disability and/or ability.
