Judy Arnold
Judy Arnold is a native Austinite and a versatile vocalist you've seen in many Zachary Scott Theater Productions such as Crowns, Beehive, Soul Sisters, Rockin’ Christmas Party, Gospel at Colonus, Precious Lord, and Dreamgirls. Critics say, “…she is the next best thing to Aretha herself,.” “Goodness, greatness, an awe-inspiring performer.” She will earn your R.E.S.P.E.C.T. with her thrashing, soul-stirring impersonation of the performer she emulates. Judy has pursued many talents but decided that her success would lie in entertaining local and nationwide fans in media and film. She also served her country as Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. Later, she worked as an educator in the Austin Independent School District.

Sara Hickman
Sara creates music for adults, families and children. She is an Official State Musician of Texas, serving from May 2010-May 2011, as decreed by the Texas State Legislature. In honor of her role as state musician, Sara wanted to give back to her home state. In May 2011 she released "The Best of Times", a compilation CD of her songs recorded by other amazing Texas musicians, including Willie Nelson, Marcia Ball, Shawn Colvin, Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, Ruthie Foster and 25 other musical acts. All proceeds went to Creative Action, a group that helps put art, music and theatre back into public schools.

Sara released her 13th major CD “Shine” in the summer of 2013 and more recently “Newborn, Too”, a follow-up to the award -winning “Newborn” CD. Indeed, she has a number of award winning children’s titles, including the “Big Bird, Little Bird” DVD. She’s known for her one-of-a-kind live shows, which can vary from intimate and soothing to hilarious and rocking. Whether it’s the “Tonight Show”, Carnegie Hall, outdoor amphitheaters, schools or house concerts, Sara is excited to bring her joyful, creative music to her audience.
