Zilker Theatre Productions

Originally created as a project of the Austin's Parks and Recreation Department in 1959, the Zilker Summer Musical continues to provide high-quality musical theater entertainment to Central Texans and visitors from around the world.

Zilker Theatre Productions (formerly known as "Friends of the Summer Musical") has been dedicated since its inception in 1987 to preserving this special gift to Austin audiences by producing the Zilker Summer Musical as well as sponsoring a variety of other community outreach and youth training programs.

Zilker Theatre Productions, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides award-winning, free admission entertainment, boasts an audience of 40,000 annually. We are dedicated to the celebration and preservation of that unique American art form, the Broadway musical, by mounting large-scale musical productions at the Beverly S. Sheffield Zilker Hillside Theater in Austin's beautiful Zilker Park.

It is only through the generosity of individuals like you that this tradition continues. Please be generous when considering your donation here online, by mail, or during one of our show’s intermission.

We hope you will return year after year to share with us the excitement and magic of live theatre under the stars!

Our Mission

We produce outstanding, affordable theatre that educates, engages, and enriches our community.
