Miller Outdoor Theatre
Pack your lawn chairs and your cooler, and prepare to have a relaxing good time at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Visitors sit on the hillside or under the polygon canopy to enjoy the weekly shows that start in the spring and run through the fall. Sponsored by the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, free admission guarantees you can enjoy a lovely evening without hurting your entertainment fund. From folk music to grand opera, serious Shakespeare to outrageous comedy, concerts to full Broadway musicals, this outdoor theater appeals to all ages. Special children's programs are even available on occasion.
I really think Miller is a terrific idea; however, it is SO hard to hear the actors on the stage. I went for a Shakespeare play and sat at the top of the hill--couldn't hear. Could barely see them, furthermore. So we moved closer, as close as you can get on the grassy knoll without toppling into a concrete crevice, and STILL couldn't hear very well. It was fun, though, although this mainly depends on your company. :)
Miller is quite a nice place to take your friends for free. It's right next to Rice University, Med Center, the Rail line, and the Museum district and zoo. There are free performances, musicals, operas, and symphonies at different times of year. It's the only theatre next to a hill in Houston. Bring a blanket and some food. The Shakespeare plays are not to miss every summer.
I always attend events at the theatre during the summer because they are free! How else can you hear great music or watch Elizabethan Shakespeare at such a low price? They offer every type of event you can imagine so check it out for a fun night out with friends or a romantic date in the park.
Special events are offered during they day for kids too. It's close to the zoo, so you can zoom over there after the theatre!
There are amazing performances at Miller Outdoor -- children's theater, variety shows, Houston symphony concerts, multicultural celebrations, dance performances, etc. And, best of all, it's free! You can bring your own food (or buy concessions). You'll enjoy the fun, friendly crowd. It's open all spring, summer, and fall!
