I regret to inform you that

The Institution Theater Is Finally Closed!

(This Time I mean it!)

A Note From Tom Booker

Dear Friends,

Since The Institution Theater started in August of 2007, we have survived many things: A pandemic, commercial kitchen staffs, batting cage patrons, cross-fit enthusiasts, City of Austin code violations, violations of the Americans With Disabilities Act, bad reviews, lack of an audience, improv family fights, the Trump presidency, booming commercial development and rising rents, and grain-free tortilla chips. But after nearly 15 years, the time has finally come for me to completely shut the doors of The Institution Theater. I know that the physical doors of the theater we locked in March 2020, but now I am shutting everything down, and I will no longer be offering online classes through The Institution Theater.

It was always a dream of mine to own a theater, and I want to thank all of the friends, teachers, performers, students, fans, audience members, and volunteers that helped make my dream a reality. I hope that your association with The Institution Theater was helpful to you in some way. Thank you for your love and support.

I hope that everyone has fond memories of their times spent in the classroom, on the stage, or in the audience of The Institution Theater. I know I do! I love you all, and I hope to see you soon!

Your Pal,
Tom Booker
