Last year I went there 2 times. Plenty of parking. Just asked for a ticket at the box office and you got a seat. You could check the schedule from their website and choose the one you like.

Check the calendar and find a performance that intrigues you. You can't beat the price and you gotta love a little picnic and a show at the park.

This place has lots of free presentations, local folkloric ballets and companies perform here and for NO FEE, clean place, you can sit on the chairs or lay down on the grass. Great and clean facilities and restrooms and some food to buy if you need.

I've been to quite a few free performances here, and it is always a good time! It is hot during the summer, of course, but you can bring food, drinks, whatever you want. The one thing that can be irritating is when people are being loud during the performances. If you are looking to come here to really appreciate the... More

At Miller Outdoor Theatre, the MOT, you can see the opera, ballet, symphony, plays, musicals, Shakespeare, concerts, ethnic performances, movies, fireworks, children's performances, and more free for approximately 7 months out of the year from about April to October.

What more could one ask for? A variety of enjoyable cultured events for free. Enjoy the symphony, Shakespeare festival, musicals, etc all whole relaxing on the hill with a bottle of wine. Just remember to bring a hat until the sun sets...this is Houston, after all!

Awesome, awesome, awesome place. We love to come here and bring blankets and a picnic to enjoy on the hill. You can drink alcohol as well, just no glass containers. I have seen some of the best shows here and it is completely free, even parking! It does get crowded at the popular events so come early! There is a... More

This is a great way to introduce the arts to your children. It;s free and they have a lot of musicals, plays, and operas throughout the year for families as well as for adults. There is quite a bit of covered seating. It is first come first served, so you if you want a seat, come early. You can also... More
