What to expect

All seating will be General Admission so you can choose your seats comfortably. The Butler School may reduce capacity for public performances if Austin has a high rate of COVID-19 cases.

With the new Moody Center presenting regular events, parking on our side of campus is challenging. We encourage you to consider public transportation or ride sharing to avoid hunting for parking or sitting in long lines. If you are driving to campus, we recommend arriving early to find parking.
