THE DREAM

A Place for Arts.

Dripping Springs, a suburb of Austin and a small-town Texas gem, is often referred to as the Gateway to the Hill Country. It is home to a rapidly expanding population of educated, passionate, and generous community members who value the arts and recognize creativity as a powerful means to connect, entertain, and inspire. This Dark Sky Community is known for it’s spectacular views of big and bright stars at night, and now offers a means to enrich the gifted stars living among us, or those who appreciate the experience of professional live theatre. Meteor Theatre filled this void by creating a space dedicated to enriching the lives of community members through productions, classes, workshops, and events.  

 

With a fully equipped outdoor theatre and indoor rehearsal studio as its central point, the Dripping Springs Meteor Theatre & Art House serves as a space dedicated to joyful cooperation with inspiration. The starlit outdoor stage and seating area in tune with the Hill Country makes the center an ideal location for Shakespeare Under the Stars, Open Mic Nights, Outdoor Live Theatre Productions, Family Film Nights and Concerts.

 

Meteor Theatre will serve the young and young at heart by facilitating experiences that awaken creativity and inspire authentic, innovative, and courageous living.

The Dripping Springs Meteor Theatre & Art House is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  

THE TEAM

MEG STEINER, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Meg Hubbarth Steiner is the fairest theatre geek in the land. Theatre hit her when she was far too young to understand that a life devoted to creativity, while fulfilling, is not for the faint of heart. If she could go back in time, she might ask engineering or accounting to hit her, but she doesn’t care to dwell on the past. She’s better suited for visualizing the future. Theatre chose her, so she chose it back, and has been practicing, performing, and teaching the craft across the globe for many years.

 

A native of Austin, Meg grew up immersed in performance through Austin Musical Theatre, Austin Cabaret Theatre, and Zach Scott educational programs. She shared the stage with iconic performing artists including Larry Gatlin, Pamela Myers, Kristin Chenoweth, and Lauren Worsham. Her adolescence took her through the Starlight Theatre Program at Bowie High School and on to Philadelphia, PA where she earned a BFA in Musical Theatre from The University of the Arts. While in Philadelphia, her passion for education ignited after directing high school students in a summer intensive program. She was then gifted the opportunity to teach at the prestigious Leysin American School in Switzerland where she directed and choreographed several productions with students wishing to learn English through submersion in Western creative culture. 

 

Meg works as a theatre teacher in Dripping Springs. She dedicates the majority of her time to educational theatre, and has written, produced, choreographed, designed, and directed many productions with the world’s best kids. Meg considers herself a recruiter of magic makers and an empathetic maximizer who values action, risk taking, grit, and collaboration in the learning environment. She’s not a fan of arbitrary limitations or authoritarianism. She’s a fan of work. She’s a fan of growth. She is always choosing. She is always learning. She asks her students and collaborators to do the same.

 

In addition to teaching, Meg is an active participant in the thriving Central Texas theatre community. She has performed and choreographed with many companies including Zilker Theatre Productions, Austin Theatre Project, The Wimberley Players, Soubrette Productions, and City Theatre Company. She loves what theatre offers, and strives to instill her passion and drive into the lives of others so that they may share the experience of cultivating a rich, authentic, and well-lived life.

 

Meg is ecstatic to have made The Dripping Springs Meteor Theatre & Art House a reality.

NORAH MARTIN, PRODUCTION DIRECTOR

Norah Martin has been an operations and business manager for longer than she'd care to admit.

 

Always a fan of creativity and trying something new, she began her career backstage in theatre over a decade ago as an assistant costumer quite by chance! Since then, Norah has been heavily involved in San Marcos, Wimberley, and Dripping Springs theatre as a costume designer, producer, hair stylist and makeup artist, actor, props maker, light operator as well as print marketing and playbill designer.

 

You may have seen Norah's costume work in the Wimberley Player's productions of Cabaret (2017), The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and Next to Normal (2019), and in Meteor Theatre's productions of Annie (2021), The Lion King and Seussical (2022), and The Addams Family and Mama Won't Fly (2023).

 

Norah handles much of the operational support for Meteor Theatre, but you might also catch her working in Meteor Theatre's gardens or building a set for the next show.
