New Musical Workshops

Texas State is home to the Harrison New Works Commission and Bowman Guest Artists Series.

Thanks to generous donations from Patti Strickel Harrison and Dianne and Mike Bowman the musical theater program is able to develop and produce new musicals and plays in collaboration with top award-winning Broadway professionals and our gifted students.

All Artists in Residence teach classes and mentor our students in addition to working on their new show.
