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 be making The Dripping Springs Meteor Theatre & Art House a reality.
