Quality Theater with Free Shows

My family loves the Miller Outdoor Theater. They do free shows for kids on the summer that are excellent. I've never been disappointed.

Nice Shakespearean play. I enjoyed picnic on the lawn while watching the performance. The weather was nice and no mosquitoes. Everything was perfect.

Great performances in a beautiful setting, and best of all it's free. We spent two decades in Houston before discovering, or at least taking advantage of this gem. Don't make the same mistake.

An added bonus to the already great Hermann Park. Free shows are scheduled almost all the time. Get tickets to reserved seats from 10:30 to 1 on the day of the show and again an hour before the show starts, or just bring your food and beverages and lay a blanket on the grass. Reserved seating area is covered and... More

I can't review this place for concerts but if you have young kids, I would choose somewhere else to be for 4th of July. Whatever they say the start time is, the fireworks don't start until 1030. Right before the fireworks, they set off cannons that will potentially traumatize your kid. Then they do it again. You can't hear any... More

Seating under the canopy is available if you show up at noon on the day of the performance to get tickets. Good security and very clean restroom facilities. Easy access to... More

I went to see James and the Giant Peach but the venue had no power so it was canceled! I am very glad we didn't drive from too far away and though it was a disappointment, we still enjoyed spending some time in the park. The cast from the show came out and performed a few songs/routines from the show.... More

Find a space to parking your car take time as 5-20 mintutes , depends on what day of the week,if it is weekend, you must... More

Put simply there is no parking, not enough seating in the shade. The grassy hill had ants! The staff was really rude wouldn't let us stand in a shady area so we went in the direct sun on the ant covered hill then he promptly allowed a pretty girl stand right where he just ran us off from! Had a... More
