Zilker Hillside Theatre


We’re looking forward to another year of high-quality, entertaining and family-friendly musical theatre under the stars – and this year’s summer musical promises to deliver on all counts. Over a five-week run which begins July 8, the City of Austin and Zilker Theatre Productions will be delighting some 40,000 theatre-goers with Shrek – the Musical! Performances will run Thursday – Sunday through August 13. They’ll begin at sundown (around 8:15 p.m.) at the Beverly S. Sheffield Zilker Hillside Theatre, an outdoor venue located in Zilker Park, across from Barton Springs Pool.

Now in its 58th season – the longest-running free, outdoor musical in the country – Zilker Theater Productions (ZTP) is dedicated to the celebration and preservation of the Broadway musical. ZTP strives to provide access to exceptional performing arts experiences to the entire community, and through generous donations, the Zilker Summer Musical has always been admission-free.

So grab a blanket, pack a picnic and get ready for a magical evening of high-quality musical theater entertainment. For details on transportation and other theater information, visit the Zilker Theatre Productions website.
