It's … Hideoutrageous!

Two stages, more fun. This Thursday, it's an early PGraph show, followed by a new Austin Secrets preview and the anything-goes Free Fringe. Friday's got that hilarious grand-slam of entertainment with The Knuckleball Now and the all-star Big Bash shindig, a Threefer, and then, OMG, it's TheatreDome. On Saturday night, after the student-pimpin' Maestro RAW, it's the return of the city's favorite Austin Secrets show before the all-star Maestro competition rocks the stage with antics a-go-go.
