Presented primarily on Twitch, poolboy00 is part reality show, part livestream.

Because something has to happen. Right?) The chat is open, the water is nice, so hop on in and be a part of the show!

UTNT (UT New Theatre): Wyeth Airlines Flight Thirteen

Nov 19 – 20, 2020

This coming-of-age story follows a group of middle-schoolers who lose the ability to play. At the start of seventh grade, Harlequin, Shoebill, Cygnet and Finch are as close as can be. United by a shared fantasy life and bird nicknames, they’re positive they know everything about their world.  None of them are prepared for the moment when their games stop being real, overshadowed by the new monsters of illness, grades, and crushes.  As one by one, they lose the safety of their imagined space, their tight-knit group fractures under the pressure to fit in, find love, and group up.
