Smith performed with Austin Shakespeare recently in Songs from A Little Night Music at the Parker Jazz Club, in Zilker Park in The Merchant of Venice and at the Rollins Studio Theater in Tom Stoppards Indian Ink. Wagner, a recent graduate of the Southern Methodist University theater department, played Telemachus, son of Odysseus, in The Odyssey for Austin Shakespeare.
