Review: BARNEY CAREY GETS HIS WINGS at Austin Scottish Rite Theater
by Victoria Schwarz - February 22, 2024

It is so delightful to walk into a theater and see chairs moved to the side so children can sit on the floor directly in front of the stage to see a show.

Despite an increasing array of theater and performing arts camps for young people to attend, live theater meant for children is far less robust. Austin Scottish Rite Theater is one of the Austin theater companies that work diligently to provide consistent and quality theater directly intended for children, and their latest show, BARNEY CAREY GETS HIS WINGS, is a joyful, heartwarming addition.
