HOUSTON—There’s something for everyone on stage at Miller Outdoor Theatre in Hermann Park. From
daytime programs especially for young children to family friendly evening performances of music, dance,
theatre and more, this is Houston’s best entertainment value. Admission is FREE! For a complete schedule,
Free tickets for evening performances are available on a first-come first-served basis (four per person over age
16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of
10:30 a.m.—1 p.m. for assigned seating under the canopy. If tickets remain at 1 p.m., the box office will reopen one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
Under normal circumstances, all unoccupied/unclaimed seats are released five minutes before the
show is scheduled to begin. We encourage all patrons to be in their assigned seats at least 10 minutes
before showtime to ensure that their seat is not released. Again, there is NO charge for tickets. Tickets may not
be reserved by phone. Only four (4) tickets per person. At managements’ discretion, all unoccupied seats
may be released at any time for any reason.
