I went there for an orchestra performance. The theatre is awesome and there is a field behind the seat and facing the stage. Ticket is required to reserve your seat. If it is not full, you are allow to take the seat or you can actually sit on the field behind the seat. Sound system is great and the theatre... More

A great outdoor theater for free concerts, plays, dances and shows. It runs through mid-March through mid-November - check the site calendar for events. You can bring a chair, blanket or purchase seating. Alcohol is allowed as long as it's not in a glass container, but I've seen people with bottles of wine and nobody says anything. It's also conveniently... More

It starts a little late if you have kids, but there are many great day performancesbthat are the perfect length for little kids. As adults, we bring the boxed wine, blanket and a picnic and can have a perfect evening.

Had a great time on our first visit to Miller Outdoor Theater! Will be coming back for the Elton John Revue. One of Houston's best kept secrets. Free top quality entertainment.

When I was a kid we called this hippy hill. Beautiful grass hill overlooking the stage (amphitheater). I saw my first concert here with my Mom (when she was cool ;-) Peter Frampton! Kite contests and rolling down the hill. Get a 4 for 1. Close to Zoo, Japanese gardens and museum of natural science. Makes me feel like a... More

The thing I love the most about this place is that you can pay for tickets to watch plays, musical performances and many other attractions but you can also just bring a blanket and have a picnic for free on the hills right in front of it. There's a nice park around with barbecue areas and they even have festivities... More

This is a must go to place for everyone in Houston. I had my first date with my husband here so I love this place. Since then we have gone several times to see different kinds of shows with our kids.

My family and I went for a walk in the park, only to come across an awesome concert at this location. It has great sound and visuals from all locations. It was nice to see all of the people with there blankets enjoying the fresh air that night. We were able to see a Rolling Stones Tribute band and they... More

One of my family's most favorite places to go for any show they are having. So many free performances to see and even the paid ones are very reasonable. Chair seating is great but if you like a little more leg room, bring your blankets and/or chairs to sit on the hill. There are people who bring pop up tables... More

Imagine being able to see the symphony, ballet, opera, modern dance, acrobats, popular broadway musicals, classic movies and a varied selection of live music tastes. Now imagine all of them are FREE. Plus you don't have to pay $6 for sodas or $12 for beer/wine. You can bring your own food and drinks! Get there early at least an hour... More
