attending outdoor theater

Q. Are animals allowed?

A. Animals are prohibited on the hillside during performances of Zilker Theatre Production's Summer Musical.  (Service animals are exempt from this policy). Any non-service animal, leashed or unleashed that is on the hillside premise during the hours of 6pm-11pm, Thursday- Sunday will be asked to leave.

Q. Can I save a spot by putting a blanket down really early?

A. The City of Austin strongly discourages leaving blankets unattended on the hillside at any time, especially prior to 6pm. Doing so damages the turf, as well as the root structure of our beautiful heritage trees. In addition, the City of Austin is not responsible for any lost or stolen personal items left unattended.

A. Chairs under 28” are allowed in the main seating area. Taller chairs are allowed at the top of The Hill and in our ADA seating area.

Q. Can I bring alcohol to the park?

A. Accessible parking is located directly behind the theater in the parking lot. Zilker Hillside Theater is wheel chair accessible. Accessible seating is located at the front of the stage. If you require access to this seating space, please see one of COA staff members, and we will ensure your needs are addressed.
