I went to see the summer musical, Hairspray, performed at the Hillside Theatre. It had been a number of years since I had attended a play here and I was surprised to see the number of changes that had been made. The stage, set, and costuming are much more professional than when I had last been. The actors and musicians... More

One of my favorite Austin institutions is the summer theater at Zilker Hillside Theater. For six weeks in July/August we are treated to wonderful Broadway shows for the price of a donation. We saw Hairspray this summer and had a wonderful time. Local talent for these productions is surprisingly good and the crowd is always appreciative of the performance. You... More

A great place to chill, listen to music and watch the stars! Bring bug spray in case Mosquitos show. I have spent many hours here, it is a very good place to get away from the rat race!

The talent level is very impressive, and the production values rival other professional venues. This is the 54th summer for the free event in Zilker Park, on Thursdays through Saturdays through August 11 at 8:30. It's a great tradition and... More

One of the best things to do in Austin with your family - and cheapest too! For 50 years, Zilker Park has hosted a summer musical at it's hillside theater. This year the performance was the Disney Broadway version of Beauty and the Beast and it was spectacular. I can't commet on previous performances myself, but all the reviews led... More
